Mumbai Indians needed their big men to perform tonight, as they faced CSK in a must win match at Pune tonight.
With the pressure on his team, Rohit Sharma played a captain’s knock, as the MI skipper played a superb innings to take MI home with a few balls to spare.

Here are the Twitter reactions as MI remain in the competition!
The captain’s knock helped the team to register our second win…

Mumbai win their second match and stay in the hunt. It’s good for the tournament that all teams are in it as far as possible. In both of Mumbai’s victory, Rohit Sharma has scored a half century. He must bat in the top 3. #CSKvsMI

Smazing how quickly people say Shardul didn’t bowl well. Remember Rohit sliced 18.2 to thirdman boundary, 18.3 Hitman made him bowl at stumps, whipped to fine leg, 18.4 The slower one was guided well and 18.6 swept an attempted Yorker. Why can’t u credit batsman? #CSKvMI

Superb show by Rohit Sharma! He need not step down as the captain now. He can go on to lose few more matches for Mumbai Indians.

Well played Rohit. Captain’s knock and Mumbai who are a May specialist in the IPL, keep their campaign alive. Didn’t expect anything else.

Rohit Sharma’s batting is the ideal example of an average human’s life, when it’s going good it’s going great, when it’s going bad you are absolutely screwed.
