Rohit Sharma, captain of the Mumbai Indians, has been having a rough patch recently, and former India opener Virender Sehwag has speculated that it is due to a “mental block” rather than a technical problem with his batting.
Averaging 18.39 with a strike rate of 126.89, Rohit Sharma has had a disappointing season in which he has scored a total of 184 runs. He recorded his record-setting 16th duck in IPL history in the most recent encounter against Chennai Super Kings.
Sehwag continued by saying that the Indian opener will soon rediscover his form and resume his run-scoring ways. Meanwhile, Cameron Green and Ishan Kishan seemed lost at the top of the order for Mumbai Indians in their most recent match against Chennai Super Kings. They were dismissed from the game because they tried to hit every ball.
Virat Kohli, captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, has scored 419 runs thus far in this year’s IPL. Many fans and experts have voiced concerns about Kohli’s low strike rate and have urged him to up his aggression.
After eight games, the defending champions sit in fourth place in the IPL standings with a 4-4 record.
