Mumbai Indians with skipper Rohit Sharma suffered a lot in this current IPL season 2022. MI has managed to win only 2 matches so far showing off an overall poor performance. The match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders, held at the DY Patil Sports Academy on May 9, Monday. MI skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bowl first. Chasing against KKR‘s score of 166 Rohit and Ishan Kishan opened with an expectation to take their team with a fiery start.
Unexpectedly, Rohit Sharma was dismissed off Tim Southee’s last ball of the first over. While Rohit tried to hit the ball towards the leg side for a single, the ball hit on the thigh pad and went back to the wicketkeeper Sheldon Jackson’s hand to take a low catch. The on-field umpire was sure with no snick and gave his decision in favor of Rohit. The wicketkeeper Jackson wanted KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer to go for a review. The initial replays showed a slight gap between the bat and the ball. Everyone including Rohit and MI fans was convinced not out.
Later came the results from Snickometer showing spikes while the ball crossed the bat and even before it. Instantly the decision came in favor of KKR from the third umpire leaving everyone bewildered. MI skipper and head coach Mahela Jayawardene were left in a shock.
Rohit Sharma‘s poor form continues as he has scored only 200 runs in 11 games in this current season affecting the whole MI team.
