Former India players Suresh Raina and Parthiv Patel indirectly held Rohit Sharma responsible for the Mumbai Indians’ defeat against Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League 2023. Chasing 234, the five-time champions were bowled out for 171 and lost the game by 62 runs.
Shubman Gill was the star of the match with the bat as he amassed 129 off 60 balls, with the help of 10 sixes and 7 fours.
With the ball, Mohit Sharma took 5 wickets. “It is good to bat first and put a total on the board,” said Suresh Raina.
For the record, Rohit won the toss and elected to bowl first, a decision that backfired.
“The weather conditions confused the captains as Rohit and Hardik wanted to bat first. It was a good toss to lose for the GT captain,” said Parthiv Patel.
