In some breaking news, there is a very serious possibility that star Mumbai Indians player Alzarri Joseph might be ruled out of the upcoming game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Yes, you read that right.
The 22-year-old pacer from Antigua impressed one and many with his impressive IPL debut as he registered the best ever figures in the history of the league. Having said that, he failed to make an impact in the next 2 games and many believed that the Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma should have gone with the experience of Lasith Malinga instead.
The skipper might be now forced to make that move as Joseph who suffered a serious shoulder injury during the game against Rajasthan Royals is still to recover which might serve as a huge blow for the Mumbai Indians and all their fans. Having said that, with no disrespect to the talented and emerging Joseph, it might just be a blessing in disguise for them owing to the fact that someone, as experienced as Lasith Malinga, is waiting in the wings. Although there has been no official word by the Mumbai Indians on this, the possibility of Joseph featuring in the next one looks quite grim.
