The Rohit Sharma-led side has lost two in two matches in the ongoing IPL. Rajasthan Royals again managed to defend the score and is the only team in this IPL to defend the target.
While put to bat first, Rajasthan Royals managed to put 193 runs in their 20 overs quota. Jos Buttler led the batting unit as the English men went on to hit the first century of IPL 2022 and the second IPL century of his career. He was supported well by Samson (30 runs) and Hetmyer’s quickfire 35 runs off 14 balls.
At one stage, Rajasthan could have scored above 200 but in the 19th over, Bumrah bowled amazingly. He gave two blows to Rajasthan, and a run-out was also done in the same over.
In response, when Mumbai started the chase, they lost their skipper Rohit Sharma in the second over itself. Prasidh Krishna got the big wicket of Rohit.
Rohit could manage to score only 10 runs
After Sharma departed, fans over Twitter began to troll Sharma. Not only this, but we also witnessed Hotstar trolling Rohit Sharma. In a tweet posted by Hotstar, the forum tweeted, “No-hit Sharma”. We believe this tweet from a recognized platform is inappropriate, as this can create chaos between fans and the platform.

I thought they batted pretty well to get to 193. Buttler played an exceptional inning. We tried everything to get him out but he played really well. I thought 193 on that pitch could have been chased, especially when we needed 70 off 7 overs. But these things can happen as it is early days in the tournament, we can learn from that and come out better.
(The positives are) Bumrah was bowling well, Mills too, Tilak’s batting was exceptional and so was Ishan’s. I think one of those two should have batted through. The other side is big and we wanted to make the batters hit to that side, but it happens when you come up against a quality batter like Buttler. He (SKY) is a key player for us. Once he is fit he will come straight back. These finger injuries can be tricky and we want to give him ti
