Mumbai Indians have been known to be a very good fielding side over the years and this year is no different even if they have lost all 7 games that they have played. Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai Indians skipper is leading the team from the front in the field as he saved a definite four against LSG.
After winning the toss, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma asked Lucknow Super Giants to bat first in the 37th game of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede stadium. This is the first game that the Mumbai team is playing at what is their usual home ground and the team received a rousing reception as they took the field. Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul opened the innings for the LSG and started cautiously. The South African even survived a chance as Tilak Verma spilled his catch and let the ball go over the ropes. However the very next ball, Rohit Sharma took a good diving catch at the covers to dismiss the South African and give Mumbai and Jasprit Bumrah his first wicket.
Rohit Sharma continued to lead his team from the front when it comes to fielding. The incident took place on the fifth ball of the eight over which Jaydev Unadkat was bowling when Manish Pandey tried to send the ball to the boundary but a sprawling dive from Rohit Sharma near backward point made sure that LSG just got a single.
