While MI have struggled with the bat in earlier video games too however they’ve managed to put up scores with which they may battle. However, within the final two matches they’ve failed to get to even 140 which has resulted in losses. On Friday, they have been restricted to their lowest complete of the season — 131 for six in 20 overs, regardless of Rohit Sharma getting 63.
In India TV’s post-match present ‘Cricket Dhamaka’, former Indian cricketers Sanjay Manjrekar and Anjum Chopra talked about MI’s struggles with the bat.
“Mumbai Indians batted horribly. If you score only 21 runs in the first six overs; that too when Moises Henriques and Deepak Hooda bowled five of them, you are putting yourself in a losing position,” Manjrekar stated.
Chopra, in the meantime, prompt that MI ought to make some adjustments of their enjoying XI. She stated that the aspect might change the underperforming wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock with Chris Lynn.
“There should be change. I think Ishan Kishan could be given the wicketkeeping duties and Chris Lynn can replace Quinton de Kock in the lineup. Yes, a stroke player may not be the best bet on a pitch like this, but one could make this change. Or MI can also rest a batsman in the middle order,” stated Chopra.
Chris Lynn featured within the opening recreation of the season for Mumbai Indians towards the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and scored an essential 49 off 35 deliveries.
“Punjab Kings scored 45-odd runs in the first six overs of the game, as compared to MI’s 21. And the credit goes to Mayank Agarwal. We have often seen that Mayank plays more freely than KL Rahul when both open the innings. It takes the pressure off Rahul as well as the other batsmen,” stated Manjrekar.
“Mayank didn’t score big but he eased off the pressure.”
