After losing three consecutive games defending champion and Rohit Sharma-led MI side is in a spot of bother with playoffs spot at stake. The big concern for MI is that their class cricketer Rohit is not in good form.
Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma adds that it seems like Rohit knows if he gets out, MI will not get a big score.
Speaking on the YouTube channel ‘Khelneeti’, he said: “Mumbai Indians is overdependent on Rohit Sharma. He is taking a lot of stress and is not able to play the big shots. His strike rate is also reducing and he knows his middle order and lower middle order is not in form. So the captain is made to take more responsibility than required. He is playing in a way where he knows if he gets out the team will collapse.”
Rajkumar also estimates that MI will make the final. “I have a lot of expectations from MI. They will surely bounce back and qualify for the playoffs,” Rajkumar Sharma concluded.
The defending champions have won just four games out of ten, and are placed seventh in the points table.
Meanwhile, after two straight losses, RCB bounced back with a win over MI in their last match. The Kohli-led side would like to continue the winning momentum going ahead.
