Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma opened up about the win his side bagged in the 54th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. He said that it was a great effort from his bowling unit to restrict opponents under a total of 200 runs as they could’ve easily posted around 220.

Mumbai Indians registered a dominating win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai. They thrashed them by 6 wickets to win their 6th game of the season and climb to the No.3 spot on the points table. One of the main highlights of the game was their death bowling.

After a thumping by Glenn Maxwell and Faf du Plessis in the middle overs, it seemed that RCB would post around 230 runs. But after that, MI pulled the brakes and restricted the run flow. They conceded just 47 runs in the last 5 overs, which helped them restrict RCB to a total of 199 runs.

Rohit Sharma lauded Akash Madhwal, who bowled a staggering last over, saying that he’s a confident player and he knows what field he needs. Speaking at the post-match presentation, he said:

IPL 2023 | India National Cricket Team | Chennai Super Kings (CSK) | Delhi Capitals (DC) | Gujarat Titans (GT) | Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) | Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) | Mumbai Indians (MI) | Punjab Kings (PBKS) | Rajasthan Royals (RR) | Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) | SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) 

“It is a good pitch. If you apply yourselves, you can get runs. Those four guys played well. Akash was with us last year as well. We saw the skillset. We wanted to give him a role. He is quite confident. He leads his Uttarakhand team. He knows what field he needs. We restricted them to less than 200. Was a great effort, It could have been 220 or more. I have no idea what a safe score is.”
