In the IPL (IPL 2022), Mumbai Indians were a big contender to win the title, but this team surprised its fans by performing very poorly. Mumbai Indians started (Rohit Sharma got emotional) with a defeat in the first match itself, but the fans thought that this team will come back in the next match. However, this did not happen and after this, the team has now lost 8 matches in a row. With this defeat, Mumbai’s team has been knocked out of the playoff race. There are many big reasons for Mumbai’s defeat, but captain Rohit Sharma explained through a tweet why his team’s performance was not good. Rohit Sharma tweeted his thanks to his fans.
Rohit tweeted, ‘We didn’t do our best in this tournament but it happens, many sports legends have gone through this phase but I love this team and its atmosphere.’ He wrote, ‘At the same time I appreciate the well-wishers who have shown trust and loyalty towards the team so far.’
This IPL MI looking like a weak team
The current season was very difficult for Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, two of the most successful teams in the history of IPL. However, the Chennai team is still not out of the race for the play-offs. In the big IPL auction, Mumbai did not retain Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya, who played a key role in the team’s success over the years. Apart from captain Rohit, Mumbai had retained Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kieron Pollard but they could not perform as expected.
Rohit Sharma got emotional and shows his filling on Twitter 🙁
We haven’t put our best foot forward in this tournament but that happens,many sporting giants have gone through this phase but I love this team and it’s environment. Also want to appreciate our well wishers who’ve shown faith and undying loyalty to this team so far 💙@mipaltan

Rohit Sharma doesn’t bat well
Rohit Sharma has proved to be a flop this season as a batsman. In 8 matches with Rohit’s bat, he has scored 153 runs at an average of 19.12. Not even a half-century has come off Rohit’s bat. Even Ishan Kishan’s bat of 15.25 crores did not work. He has been able to score only 199 runs at an average of 28.42. Kieron Pollard is even worse. This player has been able to score 115 runs at an average of just 16.42.
Among bowlers, the economy rate of Daniel Sams, and Tymal Mills has been more than 11 runs per over. Basil Thampi has also given 9.50 runs per over. Pollard has also given runs at an economy rate of about 9. Jasprit Bumrah has also got 5 wickets in 8 matches. It is clear that nothing has gone in favor of Mumbai this season.
