Jasprit Bumrah Was Special But Batters Let Us Down, Says MI Skipper Rohit Sharma



Key Highlights

  • Hailing Jasprit Bumrah’s maiden five wicket halts against the KKRs the Captain was equally seen bewailing for the performance of his batters
  • Except Ishan Kishan, the entire MI team losing nine wickets scored only 165 runs
  • The match between the duo brought a 51 high margin win for the KKR team after high margin loss of 53 against the LSGs 3 days ago

The player of the match Jasprit’s Bumrah played a fantastic innings against the KKR yesterday taking 5 wickets off 10 runs. This was the best ever performance by the cricketer in this year’s tournament. Heaping praises on Jasprit’s performance the skipper of the MI team, Rohit Sharma equally was seen rued by the performance from his batters. He said,

“Bumrah was special today. But I’m disappointed with the way we batted. I thought it was a par score on that pitch but was a little poor from the bat from us”

The only batter that can be excluded from the Rohit’s disappointment list was Ishan Kishan, the batter scored 51 off 43 balls giving his best performance so far in the IPL. After few inconsistent innings by the player, he became the victim of great flak from all around, however, the flak was because the player was the most expensive player of this season but when compared wasn’t that effective.

Coming back to the match event, the MI skipper was not at all happy with his batters and said that after playing fourth game on the same pitch they knew what to expect from the pitch however the batters were not well, they could not build the partnership as expected and was something that went missing.

He said,

“That’s been the story for us. The Consistent performance from both departments has been missing”

From the KKR side, the skipper looked quite happy with his team’s big margin win off 51 runs which is unlike the previous one with the LSG’s where they lost by 53 runs. Speaking on the event the Iyer said,

“Very pleased because after losing the last game by a big margin, feels good to comeback and win by a big margin is nice. We had a nice start in the powerplay and Venky targeted bowlers well. I personally felt that it wasn’t easy to start for a new batter”

Iyer added that they primarily focussed on the right areas to hit the ball and not to give enough room, although not that satisfied but will have to maintain the momentum.
