IPL 2022 has been disparate so far for Mumbai Indians as it is the only team in the league of ten that is yet to open a winning account in the current season. Being celebrated as one of the successful teams with five IPL titles in its store, the historical setback endured by the Mumbai Indians in the current season is something which every fan of the team would try to forget.
The team has played seven matches and has lost all of them and the shocking figure has been dimming the team's prospect to go to the next level in the series. On Thursday, Mumbai Indians had lost its seventh match after it was defeated by Chennai Super Kings by three wickets. MS Dhoni had finished the game in style and presented the second victory of the CSK.
Mumbai Indians had opened the innings and its skipper Rohit Sharma was dismissed for zero and the awry opening had contained Mumbai from scoring big. While it was a shocker for fans when they witnessed Rohit Sharma's dismissal for a duck in the must-win match, there is yet another heartbreaking news for the fans that Sharma has created a history that he will truly hate as a batsman. With the duck out on Thursday's match against CSK, Rohit Sharma has made a record of having the most number of ducks in the IPL history.
According to reports, Rohit Sharma has been dismissed for a duck in the IPL 14 times so far and he has surpassed Piyush Chawla, Harbhajan Singh, Mandeep Singh, and Parthiv Patel to register this unwanted record. While Rohit was dismissed for a duck 14 times, all these players were dismissed for a duck 13 times. Besides this record, Rohit Sharma, who is popularly known as a hitman, has been trailing in the current season.
He hasn't scored a single fifty this season, implying that he is out of form both as the batsman and as the captain of Mumbai Indians. In Thursday's match, Rohit fell for a duck in the very first over as CSK's Mukesh Choudhary dismissed the Mumbai skipper on his very second delivery. Furthermore, Rohit Sharma's poor form would toss his place in the upcoming T20 world cup, which is just two months away. Though fans reaffirm their love and support for him, it's high time that he must reaffirm to the Indian team that he can't be written off.
