Rohit Sharma six vs KKR: The captain of Mumbai Indians put on display a monumental six against Knight Riders’ all-rounder.
During the fifth match of the ongoing 13th season of the Indian Premier League between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma led from the front to score his 37th IPL half-century.
Opening the batting with Quinton de Kock (1), Sharma remained unperturbed after his opening partner’s dismissal in the second over. Instead, Sharma stitched a brisk 90-run partnership with Suryakumar Yadav to lay a solid foundation for Mumbai.
Sharma, who got off the mark with a six against KKR’s Sandeep Warrier in the first over itself, continued his big-hitting ability against the likes of Pat Cummins and Andre Russell.
If the two pull shots against Cummins weren’t enough, Sharma put on display a monumental six against Russell in the seventh over as the ball was hit out of the stadium.
At the time of writing this article, Sharma has crossed an individual 70-run mark. With six more overs remaining in the innings, there are quite a few chances of Sharma registering his second IPL century. It is worth mentioning that Sharma’s maiden IPL century had also come against KKR in 2012.
