Zaheer Khan and Mahela Jayawardene attended MI LIVE and answered a few questions from our hosts Chinmaya, Kunal, and Binaisha. The first question was directed at Zak asking about Jofra Archer. He responded saying, “We’re very excited, two of the world’s best fast bowlers bowling in tandem together.”
After that, it was Mahela’s turn to answer a question about Tim David. He said, “He was in our radar for a while. he has been playing well for the last few months. We knew Jofra would come late so we couldn’t go hard in the beginning but needed someone to strengthen our batting so we decided to play a different game altogether. David was part of that plan. We had the purse to go get them both.”
Zak was asked about MI going all guns blazing to get Ishan Kishan. His response was, “We all love him, he is a young upcoming kid and has been with us for the last 4 years so we definitely wanted him back. Him and Rohit are going to be a force to reckon with at the top.”
Mahela was asked about the starlets we’ve signed. He said, “Credit to the scouting team of MI, they’ve worked really hard to help us make the right decisions at the table, they’ve helped us understand what kind of players will suit our setup. We have our core group ready and we’ll have young players around that.”
Lastly, Zak was questioned about Dewald Brevis. He replied saying, “We hope that we will grow further and his journey is fast tracked by being around such high impact experienced players.”
