Against Lucknow Super Giants in the ongoing IPL 2023, five-time champions Mumbai Indians got a brilliant start while chasing 178 runs in Ekana Stadium. Skipper Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan built a 90-run partnership as MI were eyeing their eighth win of the season but unfortunately, their batting collapsed, as the visiting team eventually lost the match by five runs.
“If we talk about their batting, Ishan Kishan’s wicket. They shouldn’t have lost back-to-back wickets and they should have built a small partnership there. The pressure went up after Ishan Kishan went out. I also think that Nehal Wadhera and Suryakumar Yadav were unable to rotate the strike well. Nehal ended up playing a lot of dot balls and Suryakumar Yadav just had to stand on the runner’s end for a while. He probably didn’t like it and it probably was one of the reasons behind the loss,” Singh said while talking on JioCinema.
Mohsin Khan did some out-of-the-box things with his bowling: RP Singh
“Mohsin Khan did some out-of-the-box things with his bowling. He bowled a length ball, a short good-length ball, after that a yorker, bowling with a better plan. He knew against which batters the yorker would work well. Cameron Green is a proper batter and his bat speed is a little different. For him, short or good length worked well from Mohsin Khan. Sometimes, you have to back your skills. Everything cannot be planned. Certain things need to be dealt with your instincts in certain moments,” RP Singh added.
