Mumbai Indians have named Adam Milne as a replacement for Pat Cummins for the remainder of the 2018 Vivo IPL season. Milne, who turned 26 on Friday, is known to push the speed gun past the magical 150-kph mark on a consistent basis. A lanky right-armer, he has picked up 62 wickets in 59 white-ball fixtures for New Zealand. He has also picked up 83 wickets in 70 Twenty20 matches. Last year, Milne was the top wicket-taker for Kent in the T20 Blast in England. The pacer represented Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Vivo IPL. He played five matches and picked up four wickets. Milne joins MI after Cummins was ruled out of the league due to a back injury.
