After Mumbai Indians’ eighth consecutive loss in the IPL 2022, Mahela Jayawardene is open to making changes.
After repeated failures of the star-studded batting line-up, Mumbai Indians coach Mahela Jayawardene has hinted at a few changes and is also concerned about the drastic drop in form of star opener Ishan Kishan. Five-time champions on record Mumbai Indians are having their worst run in IPL history, having lost their first eight games, including Sunday night’s game against Lucknow Super Giants.
“That’s an excellent question. I need to go over this again, as well as talk to the other coaches and make some plans “When asked about potential changes to the batting lineup going forward in the competition, Jayawardene said.
Mahela Jayawardene: Batting has been a source of concern for us
“Batting has been a source of concern for us, particularly on good wickets where we have batted below par.” This is a senior group that is familiar with the situation and has performed in the past. Must continue to push, and if necessary, we will make the necessary changes.
“We had a few changes (until now), but not many. Wanted to maintain a consistent batting average. There are obviously concerns because we have not been consistent whether we are batting first or chasing totals down “Sri Lankan legend said
Jayawardene also intends to meet with Kishan, whose performance has dipped significantly after fifties in the first two games.
“He has struggled a little, but we have allowed him to play his natural game. I haven’t spoken to him yet today, but I will do so soon “He stated.
At the IPL auction earlier this year, Mumbai paid Rs 15.25 crore to repurchase Kishan.
