Things haven’t gone as per plan for Mumbai Indians so far this season, as the five-time champions lost their third game in a row last night. After losing to Kolkata Knight Riders, the skipper Rohit Sharma looked frustrated in the post-match ceremony.
Rohit Sharma vented out his frustration but lauded Pat Cummins
After the fall of Andre Russell, the game looked in the grasp of the Mumbai Indians, but Pat Cummins’s scintillating knock changed the whole scenario. Rohit Sharma was embittered after another loss, clearly visible in the post-match presentation.
Answering Danny Morrison’s questions, Sharma couldn’t hear a question from the former cricketer. Rohit got irritated and asked to increase the volume as he was heard, “Awaaz badhao yaar uska.”

However, the Indian skipper quickly calmed himself down to answer further questions. Rohit Sharma didn’t forget to laud Pat Cummins, who turned the match with his bat.
“Never expected him to come and play like that [on Cummins]. Lot of credit. The pitch got better and better to bat as the game went on. It was holding up initially. Overall it was a good pitch. With the bat we did not start well, in the last 4-5 overs to get 70+ was a great effort from the batting unit. We did not bowl according to the plan. We had the game till the 15th over, but then Cummins was brilliant.”
“Whenever you have runs on the board, you always have the upper hand, We had them 5-down; it was just a matter of the wicket of Venky or Pat; they had Sunil who could smash them. This will be hard to digest, the way it turned out in the last few overs. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us,” Rohit Sharma told Danny Morrison.
Tough road ahead for Mumbai Indians
After accumulating three losses in the first three fixtures, there is not much room left for the five-time champions. Moreover, the qualification scenario will be tricky this season due to the addition of two new teams.
The road will be difficult for Mumbai Indians from here, but they have done it in the past. Rohit Sharma & co. will look to regather themselves to begin a series of wins, starting from the next game against RCB.
