Rohit Sharma MI IPL 2022

Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Rohit Sharma asserted that his team was always looking to win and knew that the game against Delhi Capitals (DC) would attract a lot of attention due to its importance.

DC needed a win to qualify for the playoffs while Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) was watching keenly, hoping that MI win the game and send them through instead. In the end, Rohit and co. managed to win by 5 wickets, knocking Delhi out of the tournament.

We were here to win the game. I know few teams were watching us closely, but we wanted to finish on a high. We’ll try to correct the mistakes next season. It was tough after losing eight games, so we needed to rectify the mistakes.

But I think we performed well in the second half of the season. When they got to 160 I was nervous, because it was a sluggish pitch. It wasn’t coming on to the bat nicely,” Rohit was quoted as saying at the post-match presentation ceremony.

MI went on a 9-match losing streak at the start of the season which is now the worst-ever start to an IPL 2022 season by a franchise. In their last five matches, however, they managed to win 4 games, unraveling a few excellent players who have great potential for the future.

I thought if you restrict a team to 150-160, it was about getting one good partnership. We didn’t get off to a good start, but that partnership put us in a good position. There are a lot of things, I have been talking about it, it’s the collective performance that get you through.”

When the bowlers did well, the batters didn’t. And when the batters performed well, the bowlers didn’t. We came to the party a bit too late, but at least we can take a few positives from this tournament. Every time we go into the auction, we keep an eye on the players who will play for us in a couple of cycles. We get a few youngsters who will eventually go on and play for their country,” Rohit further added.
