A player’s confidence is reflected in his performance and a good performance adds up to the player’s confidence. However, Rohit Sharma right now seems to be struggling with both. Rohit’s struggle with the bat is also messing up with his captaincy believes Ravi Shastri. Ahead of Mumbai Indians‘ reverse fixture against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Ravi Shastri opened up on Rohit Sharma his batting, captaincy, and team’s performances.

Mumbai Indians had a horrific season last year. The team is in a better state right now going through a transition phase. Ravi Shastri backed Rohit Sharma and added that while he is having a tough time, others in the team should step up too. Despite having 10 points, similar to several other teams in the competition, Mumbai still stands in 6th position. After scoring two consecutive ducks in the previous two games, Rohit cemented his place at the top of the IPL’s unwelcome list of players with the most ducks ever scored.

When you are scoring runs, the job as a captain becomes much easier says Ravi Shastri on Rohit Sharma

Ravi Shastri Believes Rohit Sharma’s Form Is Affecting His Captaincy

Rohit Sharma only has 184 runs, at a dismal average of 18.39. “As a captain, more important is that your performances come into play. If you start getting on a purple patch where you are scoring runs, the job as a captain becomes much easier. The body language on the field changes and the energy on the field is different. It’s different. As opposed to when you not getting runs, you can go flat – no matter who you are,” Ravi Shastri said. He further empathizes with Rohit Sharma stating that the lack of big players like Kieron Pollard and Jasprit Bumrah has made his work difficult.

The Mumbai Indians team is slowly getting back on track with Suryakumar Yadav coming back to form. Tim David, Tilak Verma, Nehal Wadhera, and others have been contributing to the team’s victory too. Apart from Rohit Sharma the other opener Ishan Kishan has had a rocky season so far with just one good knock. Speaking about the Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore match, the last time they faced each other, Virat Kohli and Faf Du Plessis comfortably won the game for RCB.
