Bumrah grabbed instant limelight after he took 3 wickets for 32 runs in his debut IPL match against the Royal Challengers in 2013.
Currently, Bumrah is considered among the best death overs bowlers in world cricket. He holds the record for having picked up the most T20I wickets (28) in a calendar year. His ability to land accurate yorkers during high-pressure situations makes him a highly-valued asset for any team.
In 2017 season of the IPL, he picked up 20 wickets – the highest for any MI bowler. Bumrah has enjoyed a hugely impressive and successful IPL career so far. In 47 matches, Bumrah has picked up 46 wickets at an economy rate of 8.07.
During 2018 IPL players’ auction, Bumrah was retained by the Mumbai Indians for Rs 7 crore.
The IPL season 11 will kick-start at the Wankhede Stadium with a glittering opening ceremony. Defending champions Mumbai Indians will play the opening encounter with MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings.
The match will start at 8:00 PM IST.
