Nothing is working well for us: Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma was at pains to point out one particular issue that’s plaguing his beleaguered team, which slumped to its fifth defeat on trot as “nothing is working well” for the five-time champions at the moment.

The MI skipper, who completed his 10,000 runs in all forms of T20, however, felt that Punjab Kings was one match where the batting looked like clicking only to fall short by 12 runs.

“We’re trying to play with a different thought process, but it’s not working out well. But I don’t want to take the credit out of the guys who played well and Punjab did so today,” MI skipper said after the match. 

“We aren’t playing good cricket, we need to understand some situations and execute according to it,” he added.

He didn’t find any negatives in his team, at least not in this game.

“It’s hardly anything to find out [any negatives], thought we played well, came pretty close to closing the game, a couple of run-outs didn’t help our cause. At one time, we were cruising along, but didn’t hold our nerves, credit to Punjab for bowling well in the second half. 

“They got off to a flier, put our bowlers under pressure, but the pitch was good to bat on and I thought 198 was chaseable. As I said earlier, we need to go back to the drawing room and come back better prepared,” Rohit added. 

Captain Sharma fined for slow over-rate

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and others members of the playing XI were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate against Punjab Kings here.

“This was the team’s second offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences.

“Mumbai Indians captain Rohit was fined Rs 24 lakhs and the rest of the members in the playing XI were fined R6 lakhs or 25 per cent of their match fee, whichever is lower,” the IPL stated in a media statement.
