Mumbai Indians bowling is becoming a weak link
Fast bowler Basil Thampi and spinner Murugan Ashwin proved to be weak links for Mumbai in the last match against Rajasthan. Thampi gave 26 runs in one over and Ashwin gave 32 runs in three overs. Australian fast bowler Daniel Sams has also given a lot of runs in the last two matches and has failed to take wickets.
