IPL 2021: Beating KKR won’t be easy, feels MI skipper Rohit Sharma
Living up to the expectations of slow starters, Mumbai Indians (MI) resumed their IPL campaign with a 20 run loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK). That was Mumbai Indians’ 4th loss and 8 games. The Men in Blue need to do a lot of catching now as few more losses and their dream of three consecutive titles will be all but over. They will be up against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), who defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 9 wickets, on September 23rd. Ahead of the match, Mumbai Indians posted a video where Rohit Sharma talks about the challenges of facing KKR.
“I honestly don’t believe in past records, T20 is a game on that particular day. What happens it’s a game of that you have to be best on that day. They are a good opposition (Kolkata Knight Riders) and they play cricket very well as a team, and they will obviously be coming off from some confidence after their last win so it’s not going to be cakewalk for us,” said Rohit

MI failed to chase 157 against CSK. Reflecting on the loss, Rohit said, “I know that we had a very handy record against them, but it’s important that we turn up really well on that particular day, and do the job. When you are chasing a score like 157 you need to build those small partnerships, and make sure you keep yourself in the game as long as possible.”
The skipper also heaped praise on Adam Milne for his magnificent spell of 2-21 against CSK. The two Kiwis, Adam Milne and Trent Boult rattled the CSK top order and restricted them to 24-4 in the powerplay. However, a magnificent knock by Ruturaj Gaikwad took CSK to a decent score.
“Adam Milne especially is coming from a very good tournament in UK. He is a good bowler, bowls really fast and it’s all about, you know, getting that confidence and he got that confidence in the first game.”
“So I just hope that he builds on it. We just have to come back and come back really strong and tick those small boxes, and I think if you look at the potential in this squad. We have got all bases covered,” he added.
