Rohit Sharma not too worried about Bumrah and Mumbai Indians’ first loss

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians’ skipper, Rohit Sharma has recently stated that he’s not too worried about pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

However, he has asked his other Mumbai Indians’ bowlers to step up and deliver the goods for the team.

Furthermore, Rohit also was not too worried about his loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday and said that they have a lot to look forward to.

In their first game, Mumbai Indians lost to RCB by 8 wickets due to a poor bowling attack that lacked the services of Jasprit Bumrah.

Says Rohit,

From the last six to eight months I am used to playing without Jasprit Bumrah. Of course, this is a different setup but someone needs to put their hand up and step up. We can’t keep dwelling on it. Injuries are not in our control, we can’t do much about it. The other guys in the setup are quite talented as well. We need to give them that support. Just the first game of the season, there’s a lot to look forward to.

Bowling coach Shane Bond also expresses his disappointment with Mumbai Indians’ bowling attack

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians’ bowling coach, Shane Bond has also expressed his disappointment over his team’s bowling attack.

He says that Mumbai Indians failed to create any sort of pressure on RCB’s openers and also gave too much width on offer.

That’s why they got hit to both sides of the park by Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis.

Says Bond,

We just offered too much width at the start of our inning, so we got hit to both sides of the pitch, and as I said, we couldn’t really create any pressure. We never really strung two overs together where we felt like the game was squeezing and that was obviously a little bit to do with our bowling.
