As an Indian cricket fan, it is disheartening to see Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, two of the country’s best batters, struggle to make big runs. While Virat rose back to form by scoring a fifty when it mattered the most and took his team to playoffs, Rohit has had the worst season as the batsman and skipper.
Rohit Sharma had his worst IPL season, failing to make a single half-century for the first time since his IPL debut in 2008. In 14 innings, the swashbuckling opener scored 248 runs at an average of 19.14 and a strike rate of 120.17.
There Is A Lot of Cricket Ahead: Rohit Sharma
Reflecting on his form throughout IPL 2022, Rohit said, “A lot of things that I wanted to do didn’t happen. I am very disappointed with my season. But this has happened with me earlier as well, so it’s not something I am going through for the first time.”
“I know cricket doesn’t end here; there is a lot of cricket ahead. So I need to take care of the mental aspect and think about how I can return to form and perform. It’s only a minor adjustment and I will try to work on that whenever there is some time off,” he said.
MI managed to win four games in the second half of the season after opening the season with eight back to back losses.
“It was a bit of a disappointing season for us as we couldn’t execute our plans at the start of the tournament. And we know that in tournaments like the IPL, you have to build that momentum. – concluded Rohit
