New Delhi: Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma breathed a sigh of relief when he recorded his first win in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), looking happy after spending enough time at the crease six months later. Rohit did well with a pull shot and scored 80 off 54 balls – 6 sixes, 3 fours, which helped Mumbai to 195 for 5 when they were invited to bat first. In reply, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) scored 146 runs for the loss of 9 wickets.
“I had a good practice playing pool shots,” Rohit said after Mumbai’s 49-run win. All my shots were very good so I can’t say which shot is the best. I hadn’t played cricket for more than six months and I wanted to spend some time at the crease. I didn’t play well in the first match, but I’m glad I did well today. ‘
