Mumbai Indians gave up meekly

Friday, May 04, 2018

As per the latest ODI rankings, England has replaced India at the top of the table relegating the latter to the second spot. However, during the upcoming full tour of the UK, wherein we will be playing, apart from Tests fixtures, some ODIs and T-20s. By winning the 50-overs matches India can regain its top slot in the limited-overs format’s rankings.

T-20 cricket is full of competitive edge and IPL 11 showed that keenness of the game and both fitness and talent play a bigger role. Mumbai Indians failed to break the shackles as they lost for the sixth time and the existence of the team in the competition looked rather bleak as they need to win all the six games so as to have an outside chance of qualifying for the playoff. Captain Rohit Sharma is in total predicament and his decision to bowl first backfired as Kohli led RCB put up a brave face to score 167 and then contained Mumbai Indians for 153. To add salt to the wound, Mumbai Indians captain was consumed for a blob first ball and the top order failed in the run chase. The team badly needed a win to come anywhere in the reckoning failed miserably and the net run rate slid from plus 0.008 to minus 0.059 and from now on it is ‘do or die’ situation. This situation of staying at last but one in points table is the own making of the lacklustre home side. Instead of batting first, they put the opposition in and paid heavy price for the same. Think tank of MI is to be blamed for this position. The best batsmen in the side should play as many balls and play upfront in batting order. In the end MI surrender and the hopes are losing out in IPL 11.
