IPL Auctions 2019: Can MI’s old war horses, Malinga and Yuvraj come good?

Two of Mumbai Indians picks at IPL auctions have been the short format’s biggest draws. Lasith Malinga and Yuvraj Singh, both not the same player they once were, did not find any takers on the auction table until MI reposed faith and picked them at base prize of 2 and 1 crore rupees each. Former MI mentor and Star Sports expert Anil Kumble sees utility in Malinga’s choice. “At some point Mumbai Indians will look to rest Jasprit Bumrah and at that point, they will need the experience of Lasith Malinga and he could probably be in the starting line up,” he observed.
