Mumbai Indians (MI) Rohit Sharma gave his sweat and blood for his team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The opening batter produced a sensational effort with the bat and kept his team in the hunt. 

Mumbai Indians were set a target of 207 runs to chase. Rohit Sharma came out with a positive intent and made sure that he took his team to a flying start. He along with Ishan Kishan made 70 runs for the opening partnership and it seemed that they would chase the target quite comfortably. 

But after Ishan Kishan got out, Mumbai Indians lost wickets at regular intervals. Rohit Sharma at the one end was going great guns and kept his team in the game. The opening batsman put Chennai Super Kings under pressure at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
