Shams Mulani has taken 24 wickets in T20 cricket.
In the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) taking place in the Corona era, 5 players have been infected with the virus so far. These include Delhi’s left arm spinner Akshar Patel. Delhi has now replaced left-arm spinner Shams Mulani of Mumbai as a short-term replacement in place of Akshar. Apart from this, Karnataka off-spinner Anirudh Joshi has been replaced in place of regular captain Shreyas Iyer, who is suffering from a shoulder injury.
Norkhia’s corona report not given
The management of Delhi Capitals on Thursday reported to have a replacement player in place of Akshar Patel and Shreyas Iyer. However, nothing has been said about the RT-PCR result of South African fast bowler Enrich Norkhia. It is believed that Norkhia is also positive. Norkhia did not play in the match against Rajasthan. The Corona result of Kagiso Rabada was also feared. But, Rabada is negative and he joined the match against Rajasthan.
Characters were positive in the quarantine period
According to the IPL rules, every player had to go to Quarantine for 7 days upon joining the team. Patel came up with a negative report. However, they were later found to be positive during investigations during the quarantine. Patel has taken a long time to get negative and it is believed that he has not been able to physically fit the match. For this reason, Delhi has decided to take short term replacement in their place.
Shams Mulani’s economy is less than 7
If there was one such bowler in Akshar Patel’s Delhi team, then focus on stopping the run instead of taking more wickets. In this regard, Mullani seems to be a good choice. The 24-year-old Mullani has played 25 T20 matches so far and his economy rate is 6.92. At the same time, he is also a useful player with the bat. His highest score in the T20 is 73 runs. Mullani will be released after Akshar Patel gets fit. They cannot play for any other team this season.
