Dubai/UNI: Former England fast bowler Dominic Cork has been highly impressed with the principle around which the Mumbai Indians have built their team by having a small core of high-impact players.
Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, Dominic said that MI have chalked out the best plan among all to resource players.
”When you look at what they (Mumbai Indians) have done over a period of time now, that template that they bring in, that squad is the best and I think the way that they resource players, their analytics is the best as well, the way that they do all their head-to-heads,” said Dominic on Star Sports.
”I think they have got every single piece of the jigsaw sorted and when you look at their squad, they have the best squad, it’s simple. Because, say, if Trent Boult got injured, they have a left-armer to go straight in, in Mitch McClenaghan. So, every little piece of the jigsaw is good,” he added.
The former cricketer also praised the young players of Mumbai Indians, especially Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar. Surya has been among runs throughout the tournament, while Chahar played the role of a game-changer with his spin bowling on many occasions.
”Mumbai Indians have got some fantastic young players coming in – two I will name – Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar – two, that I think will play for India, definitely,” he said.
