Rohit Sharma looked frustrated ahead of the post-match presentation following the Mumbai Indians’ loss to Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday 6 April at Pune’s MCA Stadium.

It was the Mumbai Indians’ third game in the 2022 IPL and they lost it after Pat Cummins attacked. After setting a target of 161, the MI bowlers took care of KKR’s top orders. When Tymal Mills sent off Andre Russell and KKR went 61 runs in under seven overs, MI must have been expecting their first win of the tournament.

But MI’s hopes were dashed by Australian all-rounder Pat Cummins. An in-form Cummins recently joined KKR after Australia’s tour of Pakistan. He didn’t even play KKR’s full innings as his fastest joint-fifty from 14 deliveries helped KKR win the match by 5 wickets over himself in 15th place.

Cummins didn’t spare the MI bowlers because when Jasprit Bumrah was called up to fire Venkatesh Iyer – who also had an unbeaten 50 – Cummins hit him with a six and a four. In the final run, KKR only needed 35 runs. And then the impossible happened. Daniel Sams got the ball and Cummins kept smashing it and an unthinkable 35 was scored in 6 balls.

Rohit Sharma’s frustration was evident in both his face and demeanor. Before the awards ceremony after the game, Rohit showed that emotion when he couldn’t hear the question from one of the commentators, Danny Morrison, and asked for the volume to be turned up.

“This is going to be hard to stomach” – Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma praised Pat Cummins for his exceptional shot and lamented their bowlers not being able to make it to plan.

He said: “I never expected him to come and play like that. Lots of credit. The pitch got better and better as the game progressed. It held up at first. Overall it was a good pitch. We didn’t start well with the racquet, in the last 4-5 overs it was a big effort from the batting unit to get to 70+. We didn’t bowl according to plan. We finished the game by the 15th but the Cummins were brilliant.”

“Whenever you have runs on the board, you always have the upper hand. We had them 5 down, it was just a matter of wicket from Venky or Pat, they had Sunil to smash them. That will be hard to digest as it turned out in the last few overs. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us.”
