I thought we played the game pretty well: Rohit Sharma
Mumbai Indians have now lost five games in a row in the Indian Premier League 2022, while Punjab has now won three games in a row. “From that game, there’s scarcely anything to learn. I think we did a good job in the field and came close at the end of our batting innings. “It’s just that a few of key runouts weren’t required, but that happens.
“We were gliding along and keeping up with the run rate at one point, but we couldn’t keep our nerves in the end. Kings deserve credit for the way they bowled in the end “In a post-match presentation, Rohit Sharma stated.
“If you’re not winning games, you’ll have to figure out a means to perform as a batting group. As a result, we’re looking for diverse ideas and thought processes. It doesn’t appear to be functioning right now, but I don’t want to detract from the guys’ efforts.”
