'Mental hurdle' Former Star Indian Cricketer On Rohit Sharma's Poor Form In IPL 2023

According to former India opener Virender Sehwag, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma is experiencing a “mental block” and is not having any technical issues with his batting. This IPL season, Rohit has struggled to score runs, scoring only 184 runs at an average of 18.39 and a strike rate of 126.89. He was unable to score throughout the last two games. In fact, during the most recent game against Chennai Super Kings, Rohit recorded his 16th duck, which is a record for the IPL.

“Rohit Sharma is engaged in a conflict with himself rather than the bowlers. There is a mental hurdle,” Sehwag said on Cricket Live on Star Sports.

No issues with his hitting technique exist. He seems a little disoriented in his thoughts. However, we will make up for all of the prior matches the day he starts playing. The five-time winners MI are mired in seventh place with 10 points after five losses and as many victories. They lost by six wickets against CSK in their most recent game after a shaky start left them with just 139 for 8, a total that was easily reached by their opponents in 17.4 overs.

Former Australian hitter Aaron Finch stated the Mumbai openers appear bewildered and they should learn from the way CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad goes about his job. Cameron Green and Ishan Kishan opened the innings but only managed to score 6 and 7 runs, respectively.

“MI’s opening combination looks jumbled; they’re taking a lot of risk,” They sought to strike each ball. They ought to take a cue from Ruturaj Gaikwad, who strikes the loose balls while maintaining his composure in the centre, said Finch.
