Rohit Sharma’s Emotional Dressing Room Speech Following Mumbai Indians’ Loss to KKR. Rohit Sharma and his Mumbai Indians team have had a disastrous start to the IPL 2022 season, having lost all three games.
Mumbai Indians failed to qualify for the playoffs in the IPL 2021, finishing fifth after the league stage, and their attempt to recover from that setback has not gone well. Mumbai Indians would have hoped to hit the ground running in IPL 2022 after a merry-go-round of players following the IPL mega auction. However, Rohit Sharma and his team have had a disastrous start to the season, having lost all three games so far. MI are one of three teams – the others being defending champions Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad – who will not play in the IPL in 2022, following their latest defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders.
Following the defeat to KKR, in which Pat Cummins demonstrated his batsmanship, captain Rohit Sharma was seen giving a passionate speech to his teammates in the dressing room.
“Individuals cannot be blamed in this case. We’re all in this together. We win and we lose together. For me, it’s as simple as that “Rohit stated this in a video posted by the Mumbai Indians on their official Twitter account.
Rohit Sharma’s Dressing Room Speech Following Mumbai Indians’ Loss
“I believe that a certain amount of desperation is required of each of us. That sense of desperation is crucial when we play, especially in this tournament. Because opponents are diverse, they constantly devise new strategies. All we have to do is stay ahead of them. All we have to do is keep an eye on them. And the only way we can do that is to play with a slight hunger and desperation on the field – with the bat, with the ball, with everything “He continued.
Rohit reassured his teammates that there was no need to panic just yet because the tournament was still in its early stages.
“We don’t need to be concerned. To be honest, we talk about talent, potential, and everything else in this room, but until we bring that desperation and hunger to the field, opponents will not hand us victories.”
“They unquestionably stole the victory from us. We must do the same against the opposition. We need to nail those pivotal moments and then see what happens. There’s no point in burying our heads at this point because it’s still early in the game. It’s still early days. And I believe we’ve demonstrated some character in the three games we’ve played. It’s just that all 11 of us inside – whoever goes inside – must work together “said the Mumbai Indians captain.
Mumbai’s next match will be against the high-flying Royal Challengers Bangalore, who recently defeated the Rajasthan Royals.
