Mumbai Indians’ Australian pacer James Pattinson has called Jaspreet Bumrah the best T20 bowler in the world and said he is keen to work with the leadership in 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, “Personally, it’s great to work with some of the best bowlers in the world. Of course, Bumrah is probably the best T20 bowler in the world. And Bolt (Trent Bolt) is also present.” It will be a great experience for me. “

“I’ve played a few ODIs in the UAE before, so I’ve had some experience playing here in the UAE.” Defending champions Mumbai have decided to include Pattinson in the squad instead of veteran Lasith Malinga, who has decided not to play in the IPL this year for personal reasons.
Regarding the UAE pitch, Pattinson said, “The wickets are dry and there are three wickets that will be used throughout the tournament so that the progress of the tournament will gradually reduce the pitch and reduce the bounce.”
