IPL 2020: One set batsmen needs to bat deep till the end, says Rohit

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said that batsmen who get set in the center need to bat till the end as batting in moist conditions in the UAE is testing.

Mumbai rode on Rohit’s splendid 54- ball 80 to beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs. Simultaneously, Mumbai bobbed back after its misfortune against Chennai Super Kings to enroll its first success in the competition.

“I was a bit tired in the end and it was a lesson for us that one set batsmen needs to bat deep till the end. We’ve seen it in the past and that’s what I tried to do,” Rohit said during the introduction function.

Having had a crucial impact in the success, the Mumbai captain credited his crew for the presentation.

“The wicket was good and dew was coming down. I back myself to play the pull shots and have practiced quite a bit. Pretty happy with the performance of my squad. All my shots were good (laughs), can’t pick one,” he said.

“I haven’t played a lot of cricket in the last six months time and was looking to spend some time in the middle; it didn’t come out well in the first innings but glad to have done it tonight,” he included.
