Mumbai Indians batting coach Robin Singh on Friday backed in-form skipper Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, saying they will find their momentum in the remaining matches of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Kishan, who was bought by five-time champions Mumbai Indians for Rs 15.25 crore, had started well but is now in poor form and has not been able to deliver for his price so far.
The Jharkhand player has so far scored just 199 runs in eight matches at an average of 28.43. Robin said in a virtual press conference before the match against Rajasthan Royals, “We have worked out a few things that we thought he (Kishan) could improve. Of course it is just a matter of getting better with the matches. ,
“As you know, he (Kishan) started off very well. But then he slowed down a bit. We have worked on a few things and we expect him to return to the form he started with. ,
Rohit too has been struggling with a poor rhythm and has managed only 153 runs in eight matches at an average of 19.13. But Robin is confident that the star opener will make a strong comeback.
“As a batsman, you need to improve on those things which you consider important to yourself. I think he (Rohit) has worked hard. We have spent a lot of time with him in the nets, on the field. And I think what he needs to do just like Ishan Kishan, we have worked on it. ,
