But when everything settles down and we will know about the future of some players in terms of fitness. Boucher said, “We did not have two star players in bowling. We tried our best to make up for it. Hope they get fit. If not, we will have to look for alternatives.” He said that it was very difficult for Mumbai without Bumrah and Archer. He said, “Bumrah was not available. Not even Jofra and both of them are great bowlers. Without such bowlers the attack was bound to be weak. I am not blaming anyone.
