New Zealand allrounder Corey Anderson is expected to join his IPL team, Mumbai Indians, later this week, with his finger injury having healed well. Anderson had cut and dislocated the little finger of his of his right hand during the World T20.

"There's no fracture, no break and we're very happy with how the injury is going," Anderson said, according to Fairfax NZ News, after seeing a specialist in Auckland on Friday, April 4. "The ligaments are all fine too; everything else is good to go. Everything went well and the news was all positive."

Anderson was bought for US$750,000 at the IPL auction in February, after an impressive few months in international cricket, during which he broke the long-standing record for the fastest ODI century. His participation in the tournament, however, was in doubt, after he hurt himself while attempting a catch against Sri Lanka.

The IPL begins on April 16, in the UAE, with defending champions Mumbai Indians playing the opener against Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi.

The problem with Mumbai yet again this year is that they have too many good overseas players who could end up getting benched for the whole season. I honestly cannot see guys like Ben Dunk and Josh Hazelwood get a single game unless their other overseas stars get injured or unwell. On the other side, their Indian players are not that good except a couple of their bowlers in ZAK and Bhaji. So the onus for Mumbai will be on their overseas players and Indian internationals to retain the cup. Won't be easy for them this year.

Mi is going to take everyone whether it it csk choker or rcb.mi rockz

CSk seems most balanced side my CSK 11

Baba Aparajith,Dwayne Smith,Suresh Raina,Faf Du Plessis,Dwayne Bravo, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja,Mithun Manhas/Ishwar Pandey, Mohit Sharma,Ben Hilfenhaus/Matt Henry . Even though Samuel Badree and mcculum are topclass they are most probably get less matches as CSK usually stick with their 11 for most of the matches.

@gurdit Mumbai aren't the favourites lol.

That is not surprising!! Would his injury heal in time if NZ were meant to play Bangladesh or Zimbabwe?

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (April 7, 2014, 20:00 GMT)

I wish him well. However, I shall reserve judgement about his ability after I see him play on Indian pitches against the turning ball. Still, he seems to be a very talented and skilled player. Mumbai Indians will definitely be a stronger unit with him on the field. Best wishes.
