Rohit Sharma Finishes IPL With An Unwanted Record

Written by Abhishek Patil

Bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils played party poopers and knocked defending champions Mumbai Indians out from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 after handing them an 11-run defeat at the Ferozshah Kotla, Delhi, on Sunday.

More worryingly, Not only was it a dismal season for Mumbai Indians, it was worse for their captain Rohit Sharma. The dashing opener of team India signed off the tournament with an unwanted record to his name.

This is the first time Rohit Sharma has failed to cross the 300-run mark in an IPL season. He scored only 286 runs at an average of 23.83 in this season.

Rohit had a tremendous IPL 2013 season where he scored 538 runs in 19 matches at an average of 38.42. In 11 IPL editions he played, Rohit has touched the 400-run mark (in a season) five times in his career.

Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Daredevils notched up a thrilling win to eliminate Mumbai Indians from the race for the IPL play-offs.
