Following the defeat, Rohit Sharma kept his head down and made his way back to the pavilion and the video clip of the same gained traction among the fans of the cricket fraternity. The senior pro gave absolutely everything in the run-chase but ended up on the losing side.

Rohit Sharma reached his century in the 20th over of MI’s innings. Upon realizing that the game had already slipped from MI’s hands, the former MI captain didn’t celebrate his milestone. He brought up his century in 61 balls and ended his IPL century drought.
