Abu Dhabi: In the Indian Premier League on Friday, Mumbai Indians registered a convincing win against Kolkata Knight Riders. Mumbai first stopped KKR for 148 runs and after that they easily achieved the target of 149 runs in 16.5 overs, losing 2 wickets. Quinton de Kock became the ‘man of the match’ for Mumbai, who scored an unbeaten 78 off 44 balls. Captain Rohit Sharma also gave a good start by scoring 35 runs. After the match, Rohit Sharma made a prediction along with expressing his happiness of victory.
After the explosive win against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma said that chasing such a goal is fantastic. Rohit said at the award ceremony after the match, “It is fantastic to record such an impressive victory chasing the target. This will boost our confidence a lot. ”
Apart from this, this captain and opener, known as Hitman, also made a prediction. Rohit said that the team batting later in the tournament will win more matches. He said, “I believe that the team batting later will win more matches now.” In this match, we bowled effectively with the first ball.
In this match, Rohit shared a 94-run partnership for the first wicket with his fellow opener South African wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock. Rohit praised De Cock, saying, “I like playing with De Cock.” He plays fast from the beginning and most of the time he adopts aggressive attitude and I support him. ”
In his unbeaten innings, Deacock made some cracking shots on the leg side. Asked about this, he said, “I take good shots on the leg side.” It is not that I had made any plans for this but it is a natural part of my game. “He said that he was disappointed not to bat till the last match.” In the last match, I told the team I was disappointed at the crease for not winning. I asked Mahela Jayawardene (coach) to make some improvements which benefited me. ”
Deacock also said that Jayawardene is of course looking very calm but when it comes to discipline, he is very strict. It is worth noting that the support staff of Mumbai Indians has always been full of former veterans and this time too many former players are present to teach them the lesson of cricket and show them the way. Perhaps this is the reason the defending champion team has started winning matches again.
