Rohit Sharma’s 37-ball 56 helped Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad, which was a very important win. It was also enough for them to get into the playoffs.
The Mumbai captain set up his team so that they could reach a big goal of 201 runs in just 18 overs. This helped them beat SRH by eight wickets. This was Mumbai’s eighth league win in 14 games, and they beat RCB by just enough to get the fourth spot in the playoffs, behind Gujarat Titans, Chennai Super Kings, and Lucknow Super Giants.
Rohit’s Best Game Ever:
The Mumbai opener hasn’t had the best season in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Before the match against SRH, he had only made 257 runs in 13 games. Rohit, on the other hand, got back into shape at the right time and hit the second fifty of the 2023 season. With his fifty, Sharma also reached 5,000 runs for the Mumbai Indians, joining Virat Kohli as the only other player in IPL history to do so for one team.
Virat, who has played for RCB for 16 seasons, is at the top of the list with 7,162 runs. Rohit, who joined MI in 2011 and has 5,000 runs, is in second place. Suresh Raina is third on the list with 4,687 runs for the Chennai Super Kings, and MS Dhoni is fourth with 4,507 runs for the same team.
Rohit Joins Virat In Another Historic Achievement.
Rohit’s 56 runs also helped him reach 11,000 runs in all T20 matches he has played—international, domestic, and IPL. He now has exactly 11,000 runs in all T20s, the second-most by an Indian batsman after Virat Kohli, who has 11,864 runs in all T20s.
Aside from that, veteran Shikhar Dhawan is third with 9,645 runs in T20s for India, and Suresh Raina is fourth with 8,654 runs.
