Arjun Tendulkar, who is also in UK and South African youngster Dewald Brevis are also likely to join the touring party,” an IPL insider privy to the development told PTI.

Look, the Indian domestic season has come to an end. While the top players like skipper Rohit Sharma, premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah will be now on the road with the national team, our international stars will also be busy with their respective commitments,” the source added.

No tickets to be sold for Mumbai Indians’ games

The tour will not be a commercial one as explained, but will instead be a rigorous battle where the Mumbai squad will undergo training and compete at the highest level.

The ones who need to be monitored are our younger crop of players as they won’t be having any match practice for three and half months before the next domestic season starts.

So effectively, we can’t call it a pre-season trip as IPL is still nine months away. But it is trying to monitor the progress of our core group of youngsters going forward,” he added.

This trip isn’t a commercial one where there will be tickets sold or the match will be broadcast on a particular channel or streamed on some app. Since the trip isn’t a revenue generator, we don’t need to apply for any permission from BCCI,” he said.

IPL 2022: Kapil Dev Discusses How The High IPL Price Tag Impacted Ishan Kishan

Kapil Dev

Former India all-rounder Kapil Dev believes Ishan Kishan was influenced by the high bid he earned during the IPL 2022 mega auction in February.

Ishan was acquired by the Mumbai Indians for Rs. 15.25 crore, although the young left-handed opening batsman scored 418 runs at an average of 32.15, with three half-centuries – numbers that were higher than his previous season – many believed he underperformed.

Kapil believes that somewhere, the youngsters are cracking under the pressure of a high price tag, as seen by his showings.

“Ishan Kishan is under the burden of a 15-crore spend. We do not always agree, but it is true that when you strike the jackpot, things like this might happen. It is great that he was able to get such a large sum of money at the IPL auction.”

“No franchise would be foolish enough to spend such a large sum. They are aware that this guy is gifted, and as a result, they have high expectations. However, there are moments when a player feels under pressure “On the YouTube show Uncut, Kapil Dev stated.

‘We saw Yuvraj buckle under the pressure of big bucks too’: Kapil Dev

Kapil Dev, a former India World Cup-winning winning skipper, looked through the record books to find some individuals from Indian cricket who had met with similar fates. Yuvraj Singh was purchased for 14 crores by the Delhi Capitals (formerly Delhi Daredevils) in 2014, and he went on to score 376 runs in 14 games, including three fifties, at an average of little over 34.

“We have also seen Yuvraj crumble under the weight of large sums of money. He was aware of it as well. The same thing happened to Dinesh Karthik and the Pathan brothers, they all made a lot of money. As a result, receiving a large sum of money can place a strain on a player’s performance. At the same moment, some kids are not under any pressure and play with abandon “Kapil Dev made a point.

Ishan Kishan was purchased by Mumbai Indians for ₹15.25 crore and the young left-handed opener scored 418 runs at an average of 32.15.
