Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has managed to score only 184 runs in 10 innings in IPL 2023.

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been struggling in the Indian Premier League‘s current season in IPL 2023 as he scored his second successive duck in the most recent MI’s match against Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.  With this Sharma has been averaging below 20 for the second successive IPL season.

In the IPL 2022, he managed 268 runs in 14 matches as MI finished at 10th spot on the points table and he couldn’t manage a single half-century score. While he managed to notch up a fifty once in the ongoing IPL 2023 season, he has averaged only 18.40 in 10 innings, scoring 184 runs.

On Sunday he was handed his second consecutive duck in this season as he was the victim of CSK captain MS Dhoni’s brilliant mind.

Coming into bed at number 3, Deepak Chahar made Rohit uncomfortable and then MS Dhoni came up to the stumps to keep wickets which resulted in Rohit Sharma trying to scoop him over his head. However, the ball only managed to take his glove and block to the point fielder where Ravindra Jadeja took an easy catch to send back the MI Captain for a duck.

Kris Srikkanth takes a brutal jibe at Rohit Sharma after failure against CSK

The three-ball dismissal was his second consecutive duck in IPL 2023 after having faced a similar in the Mohali game against Punjab Kings earlier this week. In fact, since his 44 against PBKS at home on April 22, he has scored only five runs in four innings.

Moments after the dismissal, Srikkanth savaged Rohit while on commentary, calling him “Not Hit Sharma”. Rohit Sharma should change his name to ‘NO HIT SHARMA’, I will not even play him in XI if I was Captain of MI.”

It was also Rohit’s 16th dismissal for a duck in his IPL career, the most ever incurred by a batter in the history of the tournament as he went past Dinesh Karthik, Mandeep Singh, and Sunil Narine.

Riding on Nehal Wadhera’s 64-run knock, Mumbai Indians huffed and puffed their way to 139 for eight against CSK at the Chepauk. Chennai chased down the target in 17.4 overs.
