Australian fast bowler James Pattinson of Mumbai Indians described Jasprit Bumrah as the world's best T20 bowler and said that he is keen to work with this lead of India's fast bowling attack in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL). The IPL will be held in the UAE from 19 September to 10 November.
Pattinson said, "It is fantastic to work with the best bowlers in the world, personally. Of course, Bumrah is probably the best T20 bowler in the world. And Bolt (Trent Bolt) is also present. "In the video released by Mumbai Indians, this fast bowler said," So it will be a great experience for me to play with these players. " Having played a few ODIs, I have some experience of playing here in the UAE.
The defending champions Mumbai team have included Pattinson as an alternative to veteran Lasith Maliga who decided not to play in the IPL this year due to personal reasons. With reference to UAE pitches, Pattinson said, "The wickets are dry and there are three wickets that will be used throughout the tournament, so the pitch will slow down and bounce as the tournament progresses."
