Chris Morris has taken 3/143 with an economy of 10.41 in the IPL this year and is currently in South Africa with a back injury.

He's also got a few runs with the bat which has been overlooked in your assessment but yeah. Injury is a moot point. I'm not suggesting bringing Morris into the fold now with an injury. Plus, take a look at his record last year in IPL. He has a reputation and some  relevant form to believe he will succeed at that level

Also, "most recent two have been in some damn high scoring games" - his good performance was in a low scoring game was it not, so it's swings and roundabouts.

His good (best) performance being his first game, so 3 games back.

See what you're saying though, so we'll have to agree to disagree :)

Now, I fear an RCB pasting today. Mumbai look a good side if the Pandya's and Rohit are firing, and with AB missing will be a tough ask for Bangalore.

Scrap that, just seen Mumbai's 4 overseas players:

Duminy, Pollard, Cutting and McLeneghan

Now THERE's 4 overrated, terrible overseas players for you!

Finally something we agree on haha Mumbais overseas contingent is poor. Such a shame as their Indian lot are very strong imo- Pandya Brothers, Bumrah, Sharma even Kishan all more than reasonable. Lewis a big loss for Mumbai today.

McClenaghan arguably one of the best overseas bowlers in the IPL in recent years. 63 wickets at 24 hardly the figures of an 'overrated player'. Mumbai have won two IPL's with McClenaghan in the playing XI

Bizarre not to send CDH earlier. 24 of the last over to get them to a decent total.

Last over of 24 could be crucial at the end.

Now here is an underrated player. No idea why RCB are so reluctant to a) bat him higher, b) ever utilise his bowling

Buttler arrives.

Short finally shows some of the form he showed in big bash.

Still no stokes.





No idea how Munro/Maxwell are still getting chances yet Roy failed twice after his 90 odd and cant get int side again.
