Rohit Sharma is not the captain for Mumbai Indians against Kolkata Knight Riders. Instead, Suryakumar Yadav is the skipper of the squad. However, there is a chance that Rohit could still be a part of the game. On that note, here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Mumbai Indians name Rohit Sharma as one of the possible Impact Players.
Rohit Sharma is one of the Impact Players for Mumbai Indians
Rohit Sharma is not playing against KKR due to a stomach bug. However, he is one of the Impact Players and depending on the situation, he could come out to bat. It is actually a good decision by MI because it is a day game and it may not be a wise decision to worsen’s Rohit’s situation by asking him to come out in the heat and lead the squad.
On the other hand, MI also handed debut to Arjun Tendulkar for this game. It has been a long time coming for the cricketer, who has been on the bench for a few years now. Nevertheless, it is a deserved opportunity for him as he has been good in the domestic circuit. If he can take a few wickets, his confidence would improve and he could then also contributed with the bat, if needed.
Twitter reacts to the decision by Mumbai Indians
After the toss, many were left disappointed that Rohit Sharma will not be a part of the encounter. However, in just a few minutes, the playing XI was out and many were stunned to see Rohit Sharma on the bench. With the player having a bug and not an injury, it is very much possible that he can bat for some time. This will give a massive boost to the batting line-up.
