MI vs LSG: Pragyan Ojha sends ‘Rohirat’ reminder to Rohit Sharma critics amid batsman’s horror show at IPL 2024

Pragyan Ojha and Rohit Sharma

Former India cricketer Pragyan Ojha has backed Mumbai Indians opening batsman Rohit Sharma to turn around his form in IPL 2024 and perform well in the T20 World Cup.

Rohit Sharma has experienced a terrible IPL 2024 season not because he was sacked from the captaincy but because of his inability to score runs with the bat. Although Rohit has scored more runs than last year, the current season has not gone according to his own batting standard.

Pragyan Ojha backs Rohit Sharma to improve his form in T20 World Cup

While speaking to Cricbuzz after Mumbai Indians lost by 18 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders, Virender Sehwag criticized Rohit Sharma.

“Whoever bowls well, just play. If two wickets had not fallen, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav could have finished the match once again. Vaibhav Arora, Mitchell Starc, Andre Russell and Harshit Rana had to play anyway; yes They played with spinners and did not lose wickets, they would have won the game, Pragyan Virender Sehwag said via Cricbuzz.

Another reason behind Rohit Sharma’s poor form could be the fact that he is restless in the Mumbai Indians dressing room. He really hasn’t been his old self and apparently hasn’t had any fun this season.

There are talks about him moving to Kolkata Knight Riders or any other franchise in the next edition of the IPL in 2025. That is due to the complicated situation at Mumbai Indians, who did not play under his captaincy for the first time since 2013.

2013 was the season when Rohit Sharma started his IPL title-winning streak. He followed up the 2013 title with a championship in 2015, then in 2017 and twice in a row in 2019 and 2020. It has been 4 seasons since MI last got their hands on the coveted title and it will be interesting to see if Hardik Pandya becomes only the second captain. of the franchise to win the competition.

Amidst Mumbai’s poor IPL 2024 season and Rohit Sharma’s poor batting form, Pragyan Ojha shared a tweet on X to support her former teammate. “Cheetah’s rice, Baaz’s gaze and #rohirat Don’t doubt your ability with the bat,” Ojha wrote on X.

Pragyan Ojha tried to say that Rohirat’s (Rohit and Virat) movement of a cheetah, vision of an eagle and skill with the bat should never be doubted.

Rohit Sharma will soon start preparation for T20 World Cup 2024

Meanwhile, with Mumbai Indians officially exiting IPL 2024 after last night’s loss, Rohit Sharma is expected to begin his preparation for the T20 World Cup soon. Rohit will also be joined by India vice-captain Hardik Pandya.
