In previous seasons also they had lost their opening game, and this time is no different. Moreover the franchise had some injury concerns too. Before the tournament began, MI’s Kiwi pacer Adam Milne was ruled out of the tournament due to heel injury.
But now Rohit Sharma and Co. has found Adam Milne’s replacement in Alzarri Joseph. As per reports of Cricbuzz, the talented and young pacer hails from the Windies.
