Watch: Ritika Sajdeh's Expression after Ishan Kishan's Powerful Shot Hits Rohit Sharma In SRH vs MI Match

Rohit Sharma joined an exclusive group during Tuesday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 match between Mumbai Indians and SunRisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad. He became just the fourth batter to surpass 6000 runs in the league. Only three other batters—Virat Kohli, David Warner, and Shikhar Dhawan—have amassed more than 6000 runs in the IPL.

The match was also the scene of an odd occurrence. Ishan Kishan hit the fourth ball of the fourth over by Marco Jansen straight to Rohit at the non-striker’s end. When it landed on Rohit’s pad, the MI captain appeared to be in trouble. Even his wife Ritika Sajdeh became anxious and looked tensed, but Rohit quickly recovered.

Speaking of the match, Tilak Varma’s memorable cameo and Cameron Green’s first IPL fifty propelled Mumbai Indians to an impressive 192 for five against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday. The additional contributions came from skipper Rohit Sharma (28 off 18) and Ishan Kishan (38 off 31) as the home team decided to bowl, in addition to the quickly rising Varma and Green (64 not out off 40 balls).

The star-studded Mumbai lineup has featured the 20-year-old Varma (37 off 17) as the standout batter, and his uncommon talent and skill were once again on display in his significant cameo.

The middle overs for Mumbai were difficult for them to get going, but Varma’s excellent performance provided the innings the much-needed impetus.

Sixes from Varma, one in the cow corner and the other over the bowler’s head, blasted the frail Marco Jansen for 21 runs in the 15th over.

In the next over, the southpaw expertly exploited his wrists to extra cover leggie Mayank Markande for four overs before sweeping him for a maximum score for a 14-run over.

After Varma got out, Green, who had initially had trouble with time, got to work. The tall right-hander scored his fifty before scoring three straight fours and a straight six in a 20-run over against T Natarajan.

In his final four overs, Natarajan let up 50 runs after leaking runs in the twentieth over. 62 runs were scored by Mumbai in the final five overs.
