Mumbai : Following his side’s 27-run win over Gujarat Titans in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match, Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma lauded batter Suryakumar Yadav for his confidence, saying that he wanted to come out to bat despite the team wanting to keep a left hand-right hand combination going.
Rashid Khan’s valiant knock of 79 was insufficient as Mumbai Indians registered a 27-run victory against Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the Wankhede Stadium in Maharashtra’s Mumbai on Friday.
‘It was an interesting game especially from our point of view, happy to get the two points. That was pleasing, bat first and then come out and defend the total. We kept picking wickets and in this format, you have to do that, great bowling effort from our bowlers. The guy (Suryakumar Yadav) has got the confidence.
We wanted to keep the right-left combination but SKY came in and said no, he wanted to go in. That is the kind of confidence he has and that rubs off on others. Every game he wants to start fresh and does not look back at the previous game. Sometimes you can sit back and feel proud about what you have done but that is not the case with him,’ said Rohit in a post-match presentation.
