Year after year, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been credited with bringing scores of talented young cricketers to the fore. Mumbai Indians (MI), in particular, have always seemed to hold the lucky cards when it comes to unearthing future superstars, including the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya.
This time around, Bavanaka Sandeep and Chama Milind are the latest cricketers to be called up by the franchise for appearing at the trials. The duo attended the trials on Monday.
As per a report in ESPNcricinfo, the auction for IPL 2019 is likely to be held on December 16. Considering that in mind, probably, Mumbai Indians would have decided to hold the trials soon and ink on the players they are looking forward to signing up for the upcoming season.
Sandeep is a left-handed batsman from Hyderabad who has played 45 first-class, 41 List A and 24 T20 matches. He made his Ranji debut way back in 2010 with a century against Jharkhand but never got the right opportunities to showcase his talent.
On the other hand, Milind, a former U-19 player, is a renowned face. He was a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad for 2014 and 2015 and later he was with the Delhi Daredevils for the 2018 season but never made his IPL debut.
