Not a big name, yet an unbroken cycle
Even though there is a different atmosphere regarding MS Dhoni in terms of captaincy, but Rohit Sharma has a wonderful style on the field. He made his biggest weakness his strength. Piyush Chawla was away from competitive. Mumbai not only bet big on him, but used him in such a way that he emerged as a match-winner. Apart from this, Akash Madhwal, Hrithik Shokeen, Cameron Green were also used with complete strategy, who are not big names in bowling.
right decision at right time
Rohit Sharma has reached Qualifier-2, so the biggest reason for this is his right decisions. The way he has got the best out of the bowlers after not being a big name, it is not as easy as it looks. The difference can be understood that Gujarat had specialist fast bowler Yash Dayal, who was hit for 5 sixes in a single over and it took the team several days to boost up his confidence. On the other hand, Arjun Tendulkar also conceded 31 runs in one over, but in the very next match he made a comeback. Arjun doesn’t have much speed, yet Rohit uses him very cleverly. The same happened with Nehal Wadhera, Tilak Verma and Akash Madhwal. Akash has emerged as the winner of the team.
Cameron Green is the trump card
If Mumbai Indians have any player who is performing in every match, then it is Cameron Green. Green has not only done wonders with the bat, but has also been impressive with the ball. He has scored 422 runs on the basis of one century and 2 half-centuries. During this, his average has been 52.75, while the strike rate is 161.07. He also has 6 wickets to his name. So Green, who proved to be Mumbai’s trump card, will be the most dangerous for Gujarat.
Rohit Sharma’s performance
Now let’s talk about Rohit Sharma. Rohit doesn’t have a very attractive record in the playoffs so he will be looking to prove himself. Overall, Rohit is one of the highest run-scorers in this league. Rohit has scored 6203 runs in 242 matches, including one century and 42 half-centuries. During this, his best score is 109 not out. Talking about IPL 2023, he has scored 324 runs on the basis of two half-centuries.
