Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah join Mumbai Indians ahead of IPL 2022

Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah join Mumbai Indians for IPL 2022: Prior to the start of the IPL 2022 season on March 26, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah have joined the Mumbai Indians’ camp.

It was barely a few hours after India‘s 238-run victory over Sri Lanka when the two players arrived at the MI camp. For Bumrah and Rohit, the Pink Ball Test match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru was unforgettable.

This Test series was Rohit’s first series as full-time captain of the Indian team. Bumrah took his first five-wicket haul at home in Test cricket as well as equaling legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev’s record of eight five-wicket hauls, and Bumrah achieved the feat in just 29 Test matches.

After buying some new players at the two-day mega event in Bengaluru last month, Mumbai Indians will now be hoping to get the most out of their new squad, while also eyeing a sixth IPL title.

After winning consecutive titles in 2019 and 2020, Rohit Sharma had a rough last IPL season as his team failed to qualify for the playoffs.
