Dubai. New Zealand left-arm fast bowler Trent Boult , who is set to lead the Mumbai Indians bowling attack in the absence of Lasith Malinga, believes the biggest challenge for all teams in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) here Will have to adjust to hot and humid conditions. Bolt, who represented Delhi Capitals last year, has joined this four-time champion team for the first time. After Malinga withdraws from the tournament due to personal reasons, he will have to play a bigger responsibility in the team. Talking about joining the new team, Bolt said that it would be a relief for any bowler not to play against the batting order like the Mumbai Indians.
In a video posted on Mumbai Indians' Twitter, Bolt said, "Our biggest challenge will be to prepare ourselves in the middle of the desert at a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. I come from a very small country, New Zealand where it is winter. The temperature at this time is around seven or eight degrees. "He said," Obviously, I have represented some other franchises as well, but I am very excited to be a part of this Mumbai family. From my own experience, I have played against Mumbai and the challenge is intimidating when you play against such a strong team. In this case it is good to be on the other side this time and be a part of this quiet group. ''
Bolt, who has played cricket in the UAE, said his team's bowling has the power to beat any opposing team. The 31-year-old bowler said, "I have played a little cricket here and I know that circumstances can change to a great extent here." I hope the pitches here are good. We have the skills to beat any opposing team. "Mumbai Indians will begin their campaign to save the IPL title on 19 September against the previous runners-up Chennai Super Kings.
