Tymal Mills ruled out from IPL 2022 due to an injury, MI sign Tristan Stubbs as replacement: Mumbai Indians (MI) have suffered a massive setback on top of their dismal IPL 2022 performance, as pacer Tymal Mills has been ruled out of the remainder of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 due to an injury. Mumbai Indians confirmed the development in a press release, earlier today.
Subsequently, the franchise in blue and gold has roped in young South African middle-order batter Tristan Stubbs as his replacement for the season.
“Mumbai Indians have signed South African Tristan Stubbs as a replacement for Tymal Mills, who has sustained an injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the IPL,” the MI wrote in a press release.
Mills featured in five matches of Mumbai Indians (MI) and scalped six wickets at an expensive economy of 11.17. He is Mumbai’s second joint highest wicket-taker in the season.
MI further announced the signing of young Protea batter Tristan Stubbs as the replacement for Mills. Tristan has recently debuted for South Africa A against Zimbabwe and has a promising career ahead, said Mumbai in a press release.
“The 21-year-old, talented middle-order batsman, recently debuted for the national South African A Squad against Zimbabwe. Tristan has had a very promising domestic season and played an important role for his team in the recently concluded T20 domestic league. Tristan will join the MI squad for the rest of the season.”
He will join the Mumbai Indians contingent at a base price of INR 20 Lakhs for the rest of the Tata IPL 2022.
Stubbs has featured in 17 T20 games and has amassed 506 runs at a strike rate of 157.14 along with three half-centuries.
