Rohit Sharma is one of the most fabulous batsmen in world cricket. In the last some years, he has been In his marvelous form. His promotion to the top of the order was the biggest turning point in his career and he hasn’t looked back since then. Rohit Sharma is the only batsman in the history of One Day International (ODI) cricket to hit 3 individual double hundreds.
But, in these ongoing season of Indian Premier League(IPL 2018). Rohit is not in his best form and this result to the suffering of Mumbai Indians in the tournament when they lots back to back matches. . Rohit has moved up and down in the batting order to accommodate other players and this can also be one of the reasons behind his average show so far in IPL 2018.
If we talk about Sunday, the must-win game against Rajasthan Royals, Rohit came out at number 3 and get the first ball duck. This did not go down too well with cricket fans on Twitter and they took in time and taking his case.
Apart from a 94 run knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Rohit’s form with the bat has been quite terrible, to say the least. In fact, the Mumbai Indians (MI) also took the call to slot him down the order, in a bid to get the best out of their premier batsman. While the change has indeed worked for the likes of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, in particular, it would also seem as though the move hasn’t really worked out for Rohit.
As for the dismissal against the Royals at the Wankhede, it would seem to many as though this one was rather unlucky, something that many commentators have attributed to bad form. The ball did come off the meat of the bat, as far as Rohit was concerned barring the elevation that would have taken the ball over the fence.
The delivery from Archer which clocked in excess of 150 Kmph went straight into the hands of Jaydev Unadkat who was stationed for Rohit’s pull shot.
