After suffering their second loss in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma felt that his side wasn’t able to put a fighting total against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
Three-time champion MI lost to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their opening game and were handed another defeat on Thursday when SRH pulled off a thrilling last-ball win.
Chasing a modest 148, Hyderabad were going good, scoring 73/1 at a stage. However, after a batting collapse, Deepak Hooda’s 32 off 25 balls followed by Billy Stanlake’s boundary off the final delivery guided the hosts home.
“Being at the receiving end for the second time is tough to digest. It wasn’t a good enough total, and our batsmen should have done better” he said after the match.
“The bowlers showed a lot of character to get us back into the game. We have a great squad, and for the youngsters to come out and perform, it’s amazing. They have a long way to go,” Rohit said.
Now Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Daredevils at home on Saturday.
