Mumbai Indians have failed to find the key to posting massive totals on the board in the ongoing season of the IPL. The truth is that they lacked the killer instinct to pile up runs.
The defending champions chipped in with low scores of 159, 152, 150, 137, and 130. Rohit Sharma-led team played 5 games so far where they batted first in all games.
Although they managed to defend the target twice, they were beaten by three teams this season. Currently, they are fourth in the IPL 2021 points table with a Net Run Rate of -0.032.
There lies a major problem because their batting just hasn’t clicked yet. At least, they would breathe a sigh of relief as they played all games at Chepauk Stadium this season.
The defending champions would sincerely hope that a change in venue (Delhi) would turn around their fortunes. After all, they still have all tools and ingredients to turn things around this season.
Mumbai Indians lost to Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings in their last two games. Meanwhile, Punjab Kings did a pretty good job by beating MI by 9 wickets to secure their second win of this season.
Kieron Pollard posts a message on his Twitter handle
During the recently-concluded match against PBKS, Kieron Pollard scored just 16 off 12 balls including 1 six. However, he came under fire for stealing a few yards during the last over off Mohammed Shami’s bowling. Earlier, the West Indies international warned Delhi Capitals’ opener Shikhar Dhawan for backing far in the previous game.
Pollard came up with a post for the netizens after he was targeted on social media. He took to Twitter and posted a message along with a caption. “Got to love these individuals who suppose to be objective … laughable at best 😇😇😇😇😇!!,” Pollard wrote.
