IPL 2022 has been extremely disappointing for Mumbai Indians so far. The five-time champions have played eight games and are yet to win a single encounter. This is the worst start that any team has had to an IPL campaign. Naturally, being a serial winner, Rohit Sharma would not be pleased with his team’s results. Presenter Ian Bishop reiterated the same recently. In this article, we take a look as Ian Bishop reveals how Rohit Sharma was feeling when they interacted after the last game.
Ian Bishop reveals how Rohit Sharma was feeling
Winner of five trophies, Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the history of the league. They had a decent auction and many felt that they would challenge for the title again. However, that has not happened so far. Rohit Sharma and his team have failed to put points on board this season. The captain has only scored 153 runs in eight games and is not looking in good form with the willow.
Combining all these factors, Ian Bishop revealed that Rohit, who is celebrating his birthday on Saturday, felt like a “broken man”. While speaking on Star Sports, the popular commentator said, “Rohit Sharma seemed like a broken man when I spoke to him after the last game. Mumbai Indians is a franchise with a great pedigree, so it’s understandable”
Mumbai Indians will want to finish the tournament on a high
While Mumbai has not had luck go its way, the team should also be blamed for their current situation. The entire squad has so far not put up a complete performance. Established players like Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard are yet to find their groove this season. Most importantly, the management has also been disappointing with its selection of the playing XI. They have not backed players like Tim David, who was purchased for a top amount. All that aside, MI would want to finish the tournament on a high with some wins in the remaining encounters.
