“Good back up for Jofra Archer”, Twitter reacts as RCB trade Jason Behrendorff to Mumbai Indians for IPL 2023

There are various reports regarding IPL 2023 at the moment. However, it seems that we might have arrived at the first concrete report. Jason Behrendorff, the Australian pacer, has been traded by Royal Challengers Bangalore to the Mumbai Indians. Here, we take a look as Twitter reacts as RCB trade Jason Behrendorff to Mumbai Indians for IPL 2023.

IPL 2023 Trade Window is active

Usually, the trade window is not an active part of the IPL. Franchises usually prefer to make a move in the auction. That said, in the past, we have seen multiple moves being executed in the trade window. Popular players such as Dinesh Karthik, KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock have all been a part of a trade deal in the past.

Coming to IPL 2023, a lot of teams would be wanting to improve their squad based on their performances last season. In a mega-auction, there are a lot of dynamics. Teams might not have got what they really wanted. Hence, the franchises will depend on the mini-auctions to fill the gaps. IPL 2023 Trade Window is active at the moment. There have been multiple rumours but there has not been any official news so far. However, we have one on Saturday.

Twitter reacts to Mumbai Indians signing Jason Behrendorff

Jason Behrendorff did not play a single game last season for RCB. With Josh Hazlewood in the squad, the Aussie did not get a chance. Even David Willey got a few games but Jason did not find a chance. Having represented Mumbai Indians before, the player will like a move to the five-time champions. While Daniel Sams is in the MI squad, it is unlikely that he will be retained. In this context, this move by MI seems to be a logical one. If Jofra Archer is available for IPL 2023, then, it would be a brilliant pace attack for the team.
