Mumbai. In the current season of the Indian Premier League (IPL-2022), Mumbai Indians suffered their sixth consecutive defeat on Saturday. Team captain Rohit Sharma looked very disappointed with this. Taking “full responsibility” for the team’s defeat, Rohit Sharma said that he does not understand what needs to be improved to bring the team’s campaign back on track. Rohit himself is also not in rhythm and in the tournament so far he has scored only 141 runs in 6 matches with the best score being 41 runs.
Thanks to the man of the match and captain KL Rahul (103 *) century, Lucknow set a target of 200 runs in front of Mumbai. In response, Mumbai team could only score 181 runs in the stipulated 20 overs for the loss of 9 wickets and lost the match by 18 runs. This is the first time in the history of the league, when Mumbai’s team has to face defeat in 6 consecutive matches.
Rohit Sharma “If I had known what was going wrong, I would have fixed it, but it’s not going to end,” he said after their 18-run defeat to Gujarat Super Giants on Saturday. The way I prepare for every match, I am still doing the same, nothing is different in that.

The captain said, ‘I take full responsibility for not reaching the team in the position that is expected of me. I want to go on the field and enjoy the game in the same way that I have been doing for the last many years. It is important to think about the upcoming matches. This (lose) does not end the world. We will try to come back.
Rohit defended Jasprit Bumrah’s decision not to open the bowling. He expressed hope of improving performance from other bowlers. He said, ‘He bowled very well but others need to raise their level a little bit. We try to do well in every match. We have lost 6 matches in a row. We are trying to understand what is our right combination, but it all depends on the opponent team.
