Mumbai (Maharashtra) : Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma continues to disappoint in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 with yet another failure on Monday and set an unwanted batting record to his name.
Rohit did so in his side’s match against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium. In the match, Rohit disappointed once again as he could score only seven runs off eight balls before he was trapped leg before wicket by spinner Wanindu Hasaranga.
The seven-run knock makes this his fifth successive single-digit score in IPL 2023, registering this unwanted batting record for the first time in his IPL career. In his previous four innings before this, he had scores of 2,3,0 and 0.
His previous worst performance was in IPL 2017, when he was dismissed for 3,2,4 and 0 in his side’s first four matches of the season.
This IPL season is shaping up to be his worst as a batter. In 11 matches, he has scored only 191 runs at an average of 17.36 and a strike rate of 124.84. He has registered one half-century in the tournament so far, with the best score of 65.
