It was cool to spend some time in midfield: Stubbs

“Whether you play or not, it was a great tournament (IPL) to be in. And Mumbai made it to the semi-finals, so to see 100,000 people in the semi-finals, which was pretty amazing. , hadn’t played in a few months, so it was nice to have some time to play now. “It was cool to take time in the middle and hit it again,” Stubbs said.
