Vivo IPL 2021 MI vs SRH: The most successful skipper of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rohit Sharma gave credit to his bowlers who have been performing consistently for the team. “If bowlers are executing the plans, it makes it easy for the captain,” said Sharma after the win last night against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
“It was a great effort from the bowling unit. We knew it was not going to be easy and when you have a pitch like that and the bowlers are executing the plans, it makes it easy for the captain to manoeuvre the field and keep having those options of your bowling changes,” Rohit said at the post-match presentation.
“I thought it was a good score on that pitch and the way we came out and bowled and showed that attitude on the field was very important, it was a great team performance,” Rohit said.
Sunriesrs Hyderabad chasing the total went with the flying start as Jonny Bairstow smacked 43 runs in 22 deliveries however MI bowlers turned the table after the wicket of the English opener.
MI reduced SRH to mere 137 runs in 19.4 overs and won the game by 13 runs.
Rohit Sharma also praised the fielding efforts on the field by his players. All-rounder Hardik Pandya failed to contribute much with the bat however he showed his presence with two rocket arm run-outs which changed the course of the game in the Mumbai Indians favour.
“And again, I thought our fielding was pretty good today, those two runs-outs, few catches, that is something we take a lot of pride in. We want to be the best fielding unit in the competition and (are) making sure that we tick all the boxes, so far we have picked few boxes, there are few more left,” said the skipper praising his boys.
