New Delhi. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team spoiled the condition of Mumbai Indians at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The entire team was able to score only 139 runs in the allotted 20 overs at the loss of eight wickets. Captain Rohit Sharma also did not play in this match. In such a situation, the danger of defeat is also looming over the Hitman’s team. Former opener Virender Sehwag questioned the batting of Mumbai Indians. He believes that most of the Mumbai players got out after playing bad shots.
Nehal Wadhera scored the most runs for Mumbai Indians. He added 64 runs facing 51 balls. During this, eight fours and a six came from his bat. Nehal hit the only six for Mumbai. Apart from this, Suryakumar Yadav contributed 26 and Tristan Stubb contributed 20 runs. No other batter could contribute in making runs. Captain Rohit Sharma himself got out at zero.
Rohit made an embarrassing record
Rohit Sharma missed judging the fifth ball of the third over. He started trying to play lap shot on the wrong ball. Taking the edge of the bat, the ball went very high in the air near the slip. The fielder who came from backward point made Rohit walk by holding an easy catch. He got out after playing just three balls. This is the 16th time in IPL history when Rohit got out on zero. He has become the batsman who got out on duck most times in the history of this league.
Virender Sehwag put class
After the end of the innings, Virender Sehwag, Irfan Pathan and Sanjay Manjrekar were reviewing Mumbai’s batting. During this, he said that I have not seen Rohit Sharma getting out till date by playing a worse shot than this. This was the worst shot of his career so far. He further said that not only Rohit, many other batsmen have also lost their wickets by playing bad shots.
