pardpardeftab720sl360qlqnatural f0fs24 cf2 cb3 The likes of Australian
fast bowler Mitchell Johnson and Indian icon Sachin Tendulkar were turning their arm over
in the nets at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Johannesburg on Wednesday, ahead of the
eagerly-awaited upcoming T20 Champions League tournament.
In addition, Mumbai Indians coach Robin Singh
and bowling coach Shaun Pollock were also in town to cast their eye over practice.
Although the tournament begins on Tuesday
with the start of the six-team qualifying stage, the Indians are one of eight sides
to have automatically earned a place in the group stage.
So, the defending champions will have to wait
until Sunday to begin their campaign – taking on South African side the Highveld Lions at
New Wanderers Stadium in Group B.
Following the West Indies’ success in the Twenty20 World Cup on Sunday, Pollock will
be hoping that Indians players Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Smith will be full of confidence
and can lead Mumbai to more Champions League success.
They will also be hoping that their two Sri
Lankan players – Lasith Malinga and Thisara Perera – will be suffering no ill-effects
from the defeat as Mumbai look to retain the trophy they won in 2011.}
