Hailed as one of the modern-day greats, Rohit is a key member of the MI outfit and his form could be decisive this season.
Earlier in the day, Rohit Sharma got among the runs as he scored 43 off 32 balls. He departed when he looked all set to carry on to make a huge one. He was clean bowled by Pat Cummins.
Meanwhile, in what would come as a piece of terrible news for Rajasthan Royals, star all-rounder Ben Stokes may have to watch quite a few IPL games from the sideline after hurting his hand during the game against Punjab Kings on Monday. RR will be keeping fingers crossed that he isn’t ruled out of the entire season with a broken hand.
Speaking to ANI, sources in the know of developments said that Stokes went for scans and the reports aren’t too positive.
“Too early to say if he will be out of whole season, but the hand doesn’t look very good. Let’s see how it goes,” the source pointed.
