Rohit Sharma says “It’s not going to be a cakewalk for us” in IPL 2021. Rohit Sharma believes that while his side has enjoyed. Also, sustain supremacy over Kolkata Knight Riders. It will not be a ‘cakewalk’ for the defending champions. When they lock horns with the Eoin Morgan-led unit on Thursday.
Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders is one of the most uneven rivalries in IPL history. Also, the five-time champions winning 22 out of their 28 encounters. Against the Kolkata-based franchise in the Indian Premier League.
But Sharma is not someone who relies too much on past records. He believes KKR will be high on confidence following their dominant win against RCB. Sharma feels his side will have to be at the top of their game. Also, to claim a win in their upcoming series.
“I honestly don’t believe in past records because T20 is game of..on that particular day what happens. They [KKR] are a good opposition. They play cricket really well and they will come off some confidence after their last win, so it’s not going to be a cakewalk for us,” Sharma said.
“I know we’ve had a very handy record against them but it’s important we turn up really well on that particular day and do the job,” he added.
MI has won nine out of their last 10 fixtures against Kolkata. They pulled off a 10-run win thanks to a brilliant spell of bowling by Chahar.
Lastly, Mumbai had a poor start to the UAE leg of their campaign. They squandered a winning position. Against the Chennai Super Kings to eventually lose the game by 20 runs. The loss was Mumbai Indians’ fourth defeat in eight games. Also, they will now have to shrug off the rust. It is string together a few wins to keep themselves for a top-2 finish.
