IPL 2022: The performance of Mumbai Indians, the most successful team in IPL history and five-time champions, has not been as expected in the 15th season of the tournament. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai has lost its first four matches in IPL 2022 so far. In such a situation, the fifth match to be played against Punjab Kings on 13th April is going to be very important for Chennai. However, before that, former cricketer Aakash Chopra has given a big reaction to the continuous poor performance of MI. Along with this, he has also given a guru mantra to the team of Mumbai Indians to win.
Captain Rohit Sharma will have to lead from the front
Mumbai’s team is not able to perform well in any field of the game this season. Apart from the bowling of the team, the batting has also failed to a great extent. Star batsman Suryakumar Yadav, who was not available for the team in the initial matches, made a comeback and batted brilliantly in the last two matches. Apart from him, no batsman has been able to maintain his form. The reason for the biggest concern for this team is the poor form of captain Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, according to Aakash Chopra, if Mumbai Indians want to make a comeback this IPL season, then their captain Rohit Sharma will have to score maximum runs.
Aakash Chopra reveals the real reason for Mumbai’s defeat
Aakash Chopra believes that if Mumbai Indians want to make a comeback in IPL 2022, then captain Rohit Sharma will have to score runs in batting while leading the team from the front. During a conversation on his YouTube channel, he said, “It has been eight to 10 years since Rohit Sharma has scored 500 or more runs in an IPL season. If Mumbai Indians want to get back on the winning track, then this season Rohit Sharma will have to score 500 plus runs. Also, in this conversation, he also told about Ishan Kishan’s batting. He believes that Ishan Kishan’s strike rate has dropped after the first match, perhaps he is taking too much pressure.
The last time the 500-run mark was touched in the year 2013
Rohit has absolutely failed to make him work for Mumbai in the IPL. Which he does for the Indian team in international cricket. Nearly 9 years have passed since Rohit touched the 500-run mark in a season of IPL. Rohit last scored more than 500 runs in the year 2013. At the same time, in the last 3 years, the average of Hitman has fallen below 30.
