With each team having played at least ten games so far in the ongoing edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), things are now said to make a mark as they fight for a place in the Playoffs. While MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings have overcome their last season disappointments, five-time champion Mumbai Indians continue their struggle in the cash-rich league.
The Rohit Sharma-led side sit the sixth place with five wins from their ten games. Skipper Rohit Sharma hasn’t had a great year in the IPL as he leads the charts of a rare feat in the Indian Premier League. Sharma, who yet again was dismissed for a duck in MI’s most recent match which came against Chennai Super Kings, he now leads the charts with most ducks in the tournament.
Seeing his dismal outing for MI, former India cricketer and Chief Selector Krishnamachari Srikanth has lashed out at the skipper. Srikanth stated that his nickname Ro-Hit Sharma should be changed to “No-Hit Sharma”.
“Not Hit Sharma. Rohit Sharma should change his name to ‘NO HIT SHARMA’, I will not even play him in XI if I was captain of MI,” Srikanth added during commentating in the match in Tamil for the broadcasters.
The 63-year-old also added that he would not play Rohit Sharma in the Playing XI if he was the captain of MI in the IPL. It is to be noted that these remarks came after Rohit’s three-ball duck against CSK.
The MI skipper Rohit Sharma sits at the 40 th place in the race of Orange Cap. He has amassed only 184 runs in the ten innings he has appeared for MI, with his highest score being 65.
