The second leg of the Indian Premier League started on Sunday with the marquee game between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The fans were anxious to watch Rohit Sharma, thinking back to the T20 design subsequent to sparkling in Tests in England. However, they managed a gigantic blow as the supernatural cricketer didn’t leave for the throw and it was Kieron Pollard rather than him.
Many were amazed to see Pollard leaving and were left asking why the fan-most loved Rohit isn’t playing. The captain Pollard however expressed at the toss that the 34-year-old is fine and wouldn’t be away for quite a while.
Strangely, Rohit Sharma didn’t take the field in the second innings of the fourth Test at The Oval. It was told he is nursing a left knee injury and it very well may be identified with a similar physical issue.
All the more along these lines, with the T20 World Cup drawing nearer, this could likewise be a prudent advance for him to not irritate any injury.
“Rohit is okay, he’ll be fine sooner rather than later, I’m just the captain for today,” said by Pollard during toss. Even the MI All rounder has also missed the match against CSK as the reason is still unknown.
Mahela said “Rohit Sharma was good to play today but giving him extra precaution, he will come back soon”.
CSK captain MS Dhoni won the toss and picked to bat first. The greatest news for the Men in Yellow was Faf du Plessis got fit not long before the game. He had sustained a physical issue during the CPL and didn’t play in the knockouts including the Final too. Aside from Faf, Moeen Ali, Dwayne Bravo and Josh Hazlewood are the other three abroad players for CSK.
“We will bat first, it looks like a good wicket. Setting a target will be a better option. It’s the same for everyone. I can’t say if it’s a good break or not. Once a tournament starts, you get into some sort of rhythm but this season it’s new and maybe us cricketers will start loving it. Seven games, then a break, and seven more” quoted by Dhoni.
“It comes down to how you play on that day in the shortest form. We’ll try to do the basics right and focus on the process. Sam is not available. Faf, Moeen, Bravo and Josh are playing this game,” added by him.
