Post Match Reactions

Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians skipper said that the loss is very hard to describe in words. Added that 199 was pretty chaseable on this track and they needed partnerships for that which they didn’t get. Also mentioned that Lucknow has batters right till the end so they wanted their bowlers to perform but didn’t get much. Praised Bumrah’s bowling but was pretty disappointed with the others. Mentioned that they always try to mix and match their 11 but they now need to win games so as to ascertain which 11 is better for them. Praised Rahul for batting till the very end and how Mumbai Indians lack the same skills. Ended by saying that they prepare for all games in a similar way and just enjoy themselves out there. Also mentioned that it is not the end of the road for them as they have the ability to bounce back from the position they are in.

Next Match

Lucknow Super Giants’ next game is against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on the 19th of April at Dr DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai while the Mumbai Indians will next face Chennai Super Kings on the 21st of April at the same venue.
