In a video shared by MI on Twitter, Jayawardena said: “Mark, he is an exciting coach. The way he has transformed South African white ball cricket. He has been brilliant and he is also someone that we felt thinks differently and will contribute very positively to Mumbai Indians.”

He signed off by saying, “Especially when we have a group of players with the skill sets that we have. Then we have a younger group that is coming through as well. It's the transition that we need to manage and we feel that Mark is the best man for that.”
