IPL 2019 | We Always Do Well in Business End of IPL: Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma praised his side for delivering a clinical performance as they sealed the top spot after a convincing nine-wicket win in their final encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders.

“It was a team effort and that pleased me the most. We don’t depend on individuals and lot of people have put their hand up at the right time in the tournament,” said Rohit at the post-match presentation.

“Our bowling attack exploited the conditions well today. In a tournament like IPL, the business end matters and we always play well in the second half. Our all three trophies have come when we picked ourselves in the latter half of the tournament. But it is still a funny tournament and any team can beat any other team on a given day. My daughter was here today so it was good to get a half-century, but unfortunately she was sleeping! “

“We struggled to get any sort of momentum after the six-over mark. The regular wickets didn’t help either. Pitch wasn’t the easiest to bat and it got a bit easy in the second half due to the dew but that’s no excuse. Russell has been exceptional for us throughout the tournament but expecting him to score every time is unfair. Not our best season, there are a lot of areas for us to improve on, and I’m sure we will come back stronger next year,” he said.
