Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said after Sunday’s 34-run win in the IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad that he does not impose his plans on his bowlers. Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma said the pitch was slow and it was not easy to score 200 runs here. He said, “The wicket looked good, but it was a bit slow. So scoring over 200 was a great effort. We trust our bowlers and that’s what they did. The players put in great effort in moving the score board. We decide the position of the middle-order lineup during the match. “
During the Mumbai innings, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya scored fast runs in the last overs which helped the team cross the 200 mark. Rohit, who scored six runs in the match, said, “It is fantastic to have three players playing big shots in the team. Today, Krunal showed how important he is. I do not impose my plans on bowlers. I understand his plans with him and apply fielding accordingly. It is pleasant to see the bowlers perform as planned. “
