Five-time champions Mumbai Indians suffered a humiliating defeat against Gujarat Titans at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the IPL on Tuesday (April 25).
After this defeat, former India captain and veteran batsman Sunil Gavaskar has given a special advice to Rohit Sharma. He said that the captain of Mumbai Indians should take a break from IPL for a few days.
India’s star batsman Virat Kohli also took a break for a few days last year, he came back fresh and is in great form again. Rohit Sharma was dismissed for two runs off eight balls against Mumbai. Gavaskar advised the Hitman that Rohit should focus more on the upcoming World Test Championship final (WTC).
Gavaskar said, “I would like to see some changes in the batting order of Mumbai Indians. To be honest, I would also say that Rohit should take a break at this time and keep himself fit for the World Test Championship final, he can come back again for it. Right now he should relieve himself, he looks a bit worried.”
He further said- “I feel he needs a break, He comes back for the last two-three games to get himself in shape for the World Test Championship final.”
Indian team selected for the World Test Championship Final –
Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, KS Bharat (Wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat.
