Mumbai Indians pacer Trent Boult said that it was a good decision to rest captain Rohit Sharma and all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the previous game against Chennai Super Kings.
Boult said, "They are both recovering well, in terms of their selection for the next game, I am not too sure. It was a bit of a precautionary move to rest them."
Mumbai Indians had suffered a defeat in the hands of CSK in their opening encounter of the second leg of IPL 2021. Mumbai Indians is presently at the fourth position in the table.
Boult pointed out that their next game with KKR is an important match just like others. He said that previous records don't matter as KKR is a quality team and Mumbai will not take them lightly. He also mentioned that Varun Chakravarthy is a quality bowler and hopes not to face him while batting. He hopes that the starting line up will perform well and score runs which can be defended by the Mi bowling unit.
He also said IPL is helping every player in the tournament to prepare for the upcoming T20 world cup.
