Mumbai Indians Director of Cricket operations Zaheer Khan confirms that Jofra Archer will be staying in the franchise for more than two years as the “long-term” buy can provide a lethal combination with Jasprit Bumrah in the pace unit.
In an interview with Sportstar, Zaheer Khan revealed his plans with the combination. On the question asked about Jofra Archer and his significance in the franchise, Zaheer answered “Yes, of course, he is part of a long-term plan for us, not necessarily restricted to one or two years. Jofra is one of the most talented and dangerous cricketers in the world. He adds a new dimension to our squad.”
“He’s going to form a lethal combination with Bumrah and it will be a treat to watch them operate in tandem, winning games for us. We’re excited to have him in the side and we can’t wait to have him play for Mumbai Indians with full fitness next year,” added Khan.
