Using one of the most destructive innings in IPL history by Suryakumar Yadav. MI scored 200 in just 16 points in three overs. By winning five titles as the captain of the Mumbai Indians. Rohit becomes the most successful IPL captain.
Mi increased its chances of making the playoffs by moving up to third in the points standings. Rohit Sharma was tasked with leading one of the biggest franchises as early as 2013 after winning the championship with the now-defunct Deccan Chargers.
Rohit Sharma is unable to determine what a “safe score” is in the IPL 2023 due to the Impact Player rule. Despite his success and years of playing in the league. Teams are utilizing the Impact Substitute, an additional batter to their advantage, particularly during run-chases.
“I’m unsure of what a safe score is. Over 200 goals have been scored in each of the last four games. Most teams are taking chances, and it’s working out. The batters are taking chances, and 200+ runs are being chased. The batters have the attitude of doing something special for the team, and it is working”, according to Rohit Sharma.
When Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell each scored a quick 50 in their 120-run stand. RCB appeared to be on track for a total of at least 230 runs. However, MI’s bowlers made a strong recovery, allowing just 69 runs in the final 7 overs.
“Akash was with us also the previous year. The skill set was visible. We intended for him to have a part. He exudes a lot of confidence. He is the team leader in Uttarakhand and he is aware of the field he needs. They were limited to fewer than 200. Was a fantastic effort, but it could have been 220 or more,” Rohit continued.
In a pivotal match on Friday in Mumbai. MI once again in the playoff hunt, will take on the defending champion Gujarat Titans.
