IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians team is not disappointed even after losing to RCB in the first match: Captain Rohit Sharma said big things. For the ninth time in the history of the Indian Premier League, the Mumbai Indians lost their first match.
But even after this, Captain Rohit Sharma made it clear that his team is not disappointed at all. Because for us the championship is not as big as the first match.
After losing by two wickets to Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit Sharma said that for us the championship is as big as it is.
This match was very good, we did not give them as easily. Although we were not happy with our score, we had scored 20 runs less in this match.
When Mumbai Indians were invited to bat first, they could score 159 runs at the loss of 9 wickets. Herschel Patel took a total of 5 wickets for 27 runs for RCB.
The RCB team, while chasing the target, won the match by 2 wickets thanks to the strong innings of AB de Villiers.
Rohit Sharma further said that we have done a lot of mistakes in this match, but now we have to pay attention to all these things in the next match.
This pitch was not easy to bat and we will have to consider it in the next few matches. Rohit said that he wanted to dismiss AB in the last four overs.
For this reason, we were bowling with Jasprit Bumrah and Treet Bolt but we could not succeed in it.
The same RCB captain Virat Kohli said that it is very important for us to start with the win and they have been successful in making a comeback due to their many options.
Captain Virat further said that last time also we had won the last match. It is important to play against a strong team to assess your team.
We made our contribution to the team, we had a lot of options and we were able to return to the match. He said that the pitch was going well in the first innings and that is why the partnership was important.
This ground is not like that on which you can never play big shorts. RCB batsman AB de Villiers, who was the hero of the victory of this match, said that his team knew that it could chase up to the target of 160 runs.
De Villiers said that this match was very good, we knew that the pitch was not easy to bat. But we played good cricket and achieved the target given by Mumbai.
