Tymal Mills fell short of the high expectations placed on him during his return to IPL season. Tymal Mills, who cost the Mumbai Indians INR 1.50 crore, took 6 wickets in 5 games while bowling with an economy rate of 11.18. Even if a bowler is an expert in death overs, an economy rate of 10 or above is totally unacceptable.

Tymal Mills, a left-arm pacer for England, struggled to regulate the flow of runs and was limited to just 5 games as a result. Tymal Mills came back five years after making his IPL debut with Royal Challengers Bangalore- RCB in 2017.

England pacer Tymal Mills was picked up by Mumbai Indians at the IPL 2022 mega auction for a sum of INR 1.5 Crores. Tymal Mills, who had joined his former side RCB in 2017 was previously on a salary of INR 12 crores per season. Tymal Mills kept his base price at INR 2 crore for the IPL 2023 auction.

Mumbai Indians were handed a big jolt in IPL 2022 as Tymal Mills was ruled out of the remaining IPL season, and the five-time IPL champs moved quickly to name young Tristan Stubbs as his replacement. Tristan Stubbs was roped in as the replacement for Tymal Mills who picked up an ankle injury and was ruled out of Mumbai Indians’ remaining games.

IPL 2023: 3 Teams Who Can Target Tymal Mills In The IPL Auction

1. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Tymal Mills can bowl a wide range of deliveries and is a specialist in the death overs. Alongside Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, and Umran Malik, Tymal Mills can add to the SRH bowling attack. Also, he will be targeted by Sunrisers Hyderabad since they want to rebuild their team following poor performances in IPL 2021 and IPL 2022.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have the highest purse value of INR 42.25 remaining among all teams and will bid after several overseas players as they have to fill the 8 remaining overseas slots.

2. Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings may target Tymal Mills in the IPL 2023 auctions to team up with death over specialist pacer Kagiso Rabada. They have also retained Australian pacer Nathan Ellis and Indian pacer Arshdeep Singh.

If they purchase Tymal Mills, the pace combination will be a deadly one. Also, they can rotate between Tymal Mills and Nathan Ellis while Kagiso Rabada and Arshdeep Singh will be surely in the XI. Punjab Kings have a leftover purse value of INR 32.2 going into IPL 2023 auctions and have 3 overseas slots to fill.

3. Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings may target Tymal Mills for some obvious reasons-like they would want more experience in their bowling line-up as they have several inexperienced overseas pacers like Matheesha Pathirana of Sri Lanka and Dwaine Pretorious of South Africa in their squad.

Although Indian pacer Deepak Chahar is experienced, the Indian pace bowling contingent of CSK comprising of Tushar Deshpande, Shivam Dube, Simarjeet Singh, and Mukesh Choudhary are inexperienced in the international circuit and Tymal Mills experience will come in handy.  CSK have a purse value of INR 20.45 crore and have 2 overseas slots to fill.
