Kyle Mills for Mumbai Indians IPL cricket team,will it work?

February 23, 2009

Kyle Mills has been selected as a seam bowling option for the #Mumbai #Indians #cricket team

Kyle Mills at Jade Stadium Christchurch New Zealand 2Kyle Mills comes into the Mumbai Indians cricket team as one of the few New Zealand cricket players in the IPL cricket League. While there are a lot of New Zealand cricket players in the ICL (Indian Cricket League), the IPL does not have too many Kiwi cricketers

Kyle Mills is of course a surprising choice, as seam bowling is not exactly expected to be a great option on the flat IPL wickets. In fact, Kyle Mills will face a challenge if the trend of having batsman friendly pitches continues in the IPL T20 2009 cricket season

Kyle Mills, Dominic Thornely and Dhaval Kulkarni are fairly similar cricketers for the Mumbai Indians cricket team

Kyle Mills is of course easily the best bowler among the seam bowling options for the Mumbai Indians IPL team- Dominic Thornely and Dhaval Kulkarni are more bits and pieces kind of players. In recent series , especially the New Zealand vs South Africa one day cricket series,Kyle Mills demonstrated his seam bowling skills,albeit in a losing cause, to be named the man of the series

There will be competition among the overseas cricketers for the four available overseas positions in the Mumbai Indians cricket team and Kyle Mills will be competing with not only Dominic Thornely but also the likes of Fernando and Bravo for a chance to play in the IPL T20 cricket tournament

Injury worries for Kyle Mills, could derail his IPL propects for the Mumbai IPL team

Kyle Mills has been troubled by injuries for a major part of his career. In fact, as we speak,we hear that Kyle Mills may not be playing in the Twenty20 cricket matches in the India Vs New Zealand cricket series

The IPL cricket season is rigorous and involves travel around the country. It will be interested to see whether Kyle Mills not only adjusts to the rigorous travel, but also stays away from injuries to play continous cricket for two months for the Mumbai Indians IPL team. “Getting acclimatized” is of course a much misused phrase, and the sooner Kyle Mills gets acclimatized and enjoys being in Mumbai and India for two months, the better will be his successes in the IPL

    i agree- Kyle Mills just seems to be a little low on confidence after the recent sehwag hammering- but will surely come back, since he has immense talent

Got something to say?
