Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians (MI) have founded another upcoming future star in the eliminator match of IPL 2023 against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in which Akash Madhwal produced a brilliant bowling spell as he picked a fifer and conceded only 5 runs in his 4 over quota. His performance helped MI to win the match by 81 runs.
Meanwhile, former legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar thinks that Rohit’s captaincy is underrated in IPL. He even stated that the 35-year-old doesn’t get as much credit as the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni gets. He gave an example of how Rohit executed a brilliant plan during the eliminator.
“Of course, he is underrated. The man has won 5 titles for Mumbai Indians. Let me give you an example. Maddhwal got Ayush Badoni, bowling over the wicket. He then went round the wicket to the left-hander Nicholas Pooran. Not a lot of bowlers necessarily do that because if they get their rhythm going bowling over the wicket, they will stick to over the wicket even it’s a left-hander, trying to leave the left-hander.” Gavaskar was quoted as saying by India Today.
“But he went around the wicket and produced an absolute gem of a delivery and got the man out. If that had been CSK and Dhoni was the captain. Everybody would have said ‘Dhoni plotted Nicholas Pooran’s dismissal. This is what happens to a great extent. There is also a little bit of hype, things sometimes work out,” he added.
Nehal Wadhera was used as an impact player batting first: Sunil Gavaskar
MI will now face the defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) in the 2nd qualifier on Friday, May 26. Gavaskar continued to heap praise on Rohit and said that he brilliantly used the Impact player rule by using Nehal Wadhera in the first innings and asked everyone to give him credit for that move.
“What I am saying is Rohit Sharma did not get the credit for telling Madhwal to bowl round the wicket. The captaincy situation as well. Remember, Nehal Wadhera was used as an impact player batting first. Teams generally don’t use batters as Impact Players when they are batting first. But Rohit used Nehal when MI were batting first against LSG. So please give him credit for that as well.” Gavaskar said.
