Mumbai Indians Jason Behrendorff
The Indian cricket team failed in another T20 World Cup. Due to this, the Indian fans are feeling disappointed. Nothing more can be done now. Naturally, all eyes will now be on the England-Pakistan final. But Indian fans have the support of the Indian Premier League for the next few days. It’s time for a new season to begin. But there will be a discussion about retention, trading window and auction for a few more days. Five-time champions Mumbai Indians have traded Jason Behrendorff from Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The Mumbai Indians and Bangalore announced the trade of Jason Behrendorff on Saturday, November 12. Behrendorff is a left-handed fast bowler from Australia. RCB bought it in the mega auction earlier this year. To buy Behrendorff, RCB bid only Rs. Only 75 lakhs was spent. This made the Australian bowler the basic price. However, he could not play a single match for RCB in the IPL 2022 season.
Rejoined the team after three years..
IPL’s most successful team Mumbai Indians on Saturday released a statement informing about the Behrendorff trade. The left-arm fast bowler became part of the MI family when they won the title in the 2018 and 2019 seasons, according to a franchise statement. Now the 2023 season will see him again in blue and gold (the colors of the MI jersey) in a tweet.
Debut in 2019..
For the first time in 2018, Behrendorff suffered an injury in the IPL that kept him out of action this season. Later in 2019 he made his debut for MI. At that time he took 5 wickets in 5 matches. Behrendorff has been roped in by CSK as an injury replacement for the 2021 season. But he didn’t get a chance to play any match that season.

Behrendorff was part of the title winning side with Mumbai in 2019. The last 2 seasons were not good for Mumbai and the team did not even make it to the playoffs.
In such circumstances, the team hopes to strengthen the bowling with the arrival of Behrendorf under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. Behrendorff played 12 ODIs and 9 T20 matches for Australia. In this he has 16 ODI wickets and 7 T20 wickets. Overall this bowler has an experience of 105 T20 matches. In that he took 117 wickets with an economy of 7.41.
