With little less than two months to go for the start of the inaugural season of the South Africa 20 League, franchise MI Cape Town have made their decision to sign the wildcard pick. MI Cape Town co-owned by Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise owners are all set for the inaugural campaign. So, who is this ace signing and why is it big news for IPL 2023 campaign for Mumbai Indians?

The wildcard singing comes in the form of Jofra Archer who has been on the treatment table for the last few months. The move has indicated that Archer is slowly moving back to full fitness and could be a permanent feature for the team in the coming days. Archer is a member of the Mumbai Indians team but was not able to make a single appearance in the IPL 2022 campaign. However, the latest news of his return to the fold should be encouraging signs for MI and IPL.
