MI’s fourth loss in the IPL

When the captain is summoned for an instant speech and cannot point a finger at the non-performing department on his side, it is a difficult scenario.

After MI's fourth IPL loss, Rohit Sharma

When the captain was asked for an instant speech, he was unable to cast a finger at the non-performing department on his side, causing controversy.

Soon after the Mumbai Indians (MI) lost their fourth consecutive IPL match of the 2022 season, queries were directed to skipper Rohit Sharma, who responded that his side was lacking in both the batting and bowling departments.

Ramandeep Singh, a power-hitting all-rounder from Punjab, replaced Daniel Sams in the middle order, while Tymal Mills was replaced by Jaydev Unadkat.

Mills’ omission from the game against RCB was unusual, given he had been the only bowler to take anything from the Power Play in each of Mumbai’s previous three games.

Mumbai’s bowling arsenal became overly reliant on Jasprit Bumrah, essentially leaving Kieron Pollard to face the burden of being the first-choice fifth-bowler despite bowling only 34.1 overs in 30 games in the previous two seasons.

“It was just the mix we thought would work best on specific fields and against certain opponents.” We wanted to boost our batting, but we only had a few overseas players available, so we had to make the best of what we had,” Rohit remarked, without revealing the cause for the absences. ”

Suryakumar Yadav, who led his team to a respectable score after being pushed to the limit by their opponents, deserves credit. In a Pune-based wicket, MI was put under a lot of duress, which would make them reflect.
