Rohit Sharma and Zaheer Khan held a press conference for MI.

Mumbai Indians is one of the most successful team of IPL. They have won the IPL title in three seasons 2013, 2015 & 2017. In all three seasons Rohit Sharma led the team. But the awkward thing which everyone saw was Rohit Sharma coming in middle order instead of opening. Rohit Sharma is the opening batsman of Indian cricket team but it was rarely seen that he opened in IPL.

Yesterday, Rohit Sharma and Zaheer Khan held a pre-season press conference for MI. In press conference, Rohit Sharma said that he is going to open this season. From previous some seasons, He used to play in middle order due to inconsistency in middle order of MI. This time, he will play as a opener because Yuvraj Singh is available in middle order. With Yuvraj Singh in squad, middle order of MI looks strong.

This is what Rohit Sharma said in press conference “I have in the past batted in the middle order and I’ve opened also in a few games so wherever the team requires me to bat I have to bat to get the right balance. But this year, I will open the batting for all the games, that is for sure.” When asked that is this decision because of world cup he replied that “That (World Cup) is one of the factors but also keeping in mind that this is where I bat, that is my position when I play for India and that is where I have got a lot of success off late.”

Zaheer Khan said that bringing in Yuvraj Singh was great decision for MI. He was in all praise for his former team mate Yuvraj Singh. He said that “Bringing in Yuvraj in the squad has been a boost because of the match-winning ability he has. In our discussions leading up to the auctions, we had identified that we need experienced batsmen who can control the game in the middle. Since Rohit has decided to open, we need that experience in the middle order and who’s better than someone like Yuvraj Singh.”
