Saba Karim says “Not fair to blame it on just one player” in the Indian Premier League. Saba Karim was discouraged by the way Mumbai Indians batted in their game. Against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. Mumbai Indians couldn’t chase down a target of 166. Also, fell short by 54 runs. While many blamed Ishan Kishan for the kind of shot. He tried to play, Karim believes the entire MI batting needs to be held responsible for the debacle. He hasn’t fired in the second phase of the IPL and MI has lost all three games so far.
“You will need to bat according to the situation and conditions. The sooner a youngster understands this the better it is for him and the team. But it is not fair to blame it on just one player. If you look at the middle of the lower middle-order, no one was able to score runs. Never seen such a situation with the Mumbai Indians,” Saba Karim said.
Saba Karim emphasizes the importance of cameos played. Similarly, Dinesh Karthik and Ravindra Jadeja in the game between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings.
“MI needs to focus on small contributions. In T20 cricket, all need to contribute. Look at how DK and Jadeja contributed through their cameos. CSK has set a template where their top order is also performing and middle and lower orders are also contributing,” Saba Karim said.
Karim feels MI still cannot be ruled out from the playoffs qualification. He believes they are a champion team and can make a strong comeback. However, Saba Karim evaluates DC, CSK, RCB, and KKR. They will be the four teams making it to the playoffs.
“If MI qualifies from this stage then it will be a dangerous sign for other teams coz they know how to play in playoffs. DC, CSK, RCB, and KKR are four teams that will qualify but MI can’t be taken lightly,” Saba Karim added.
