Mumbai Indians (MI), the most successful IPL franchise, recently welcomed a new member to their squad. Trent Boult was roped in by MI after Delhi Capitals (MI) released the New Zealand speedster in a trade-off before the 2020 IPL auction.
After joining the MI camp, Trent Boult shared a message for the entire squad as well as their premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
Boult in a video said, “Paltan! Thank You for the thunderous welcome. I look forward to joining the four-time IPL champions, the Mumbai Indians. I can’t wait to get over it and meet the rest of the gang, especially Boom. Let’s rock this. See you soon, Mumbai!
