Mumbai Indians (MI) defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by six wickets in their previous encounter in the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Chasing a target of 200 runs, MI chased down the target in 16.3 overs, courtesy of a terrific knock by Suryakumar Yadav (83 runs off 35). Nehal Wadhera also provided a worthwhile contribution, smashing an unbeaten knock of 52 runs off 34 balls.
Former West Indies captain Daren Ganga has now come up with a solution for Rohit Sharma, who is currently going through a lean patch.
“There is no doubt that he is a quality player. We have seen stories in the past of great players who have gone through periods of a slump, more recently Virat Kohli was in a lull with his batting and he had to go through a lean period before he regained that form and that desire to score runs.”
“Rohit is going through a similar situation where he is playing a lot of cricket, sometimes as a player you can get jaded, (with) the responsibilities as captain, as a player,” Ganga was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
Rohit should take a break before the WTC final: Ganga
“You have heard Sunil Gavaskar recommend that he take a break, and freshen his mind before the World Test Championship – that might be a good option for him. I felt that in a couple of matches that he played as an impact player with Suryakumar Yadav leading the side that can also be a common ground for him to get a little more time for himself so that he can be fresh when it comes to his batting in the WTC final”, he added.
