Rohit credited his workforce’s bowling unit, led by Rahul Chahar (3/19) and Trent Boult (3/28), for the win.
“It was a great effort from the bowling unit. We knew it was not going to be easy and when you have a pitch like that and the bowlers are executing the plans, it makes it easy for the captain to manoeuvre the field and keep having those options of your bowling changes,” Rohit mentioned on the submit-match presentation.
Sunrisers restricted Mumbai Indians to 150/5 as their bowlers, led by Vijay Shankar (2/19) put up a splendid present, however they have been bundled out for 137 in 19.4 overs to lose their third recreation on the trot.
According to Rohit, his aspect’s rating of 150/5 was a great complete on the Chepauk monitor.
“I thought it was a good score on that pitch and the way we came out and bowled and showed that attitude on the field was very important, it was great team performance,” Rohit mentioned.
“We can bat a little better in the middle overs,” he added.
Mumbai Indians were brilliant in fielding and Rohit praised the team’s effort.
“And again, I thought our fielding was pretty good today, those two runs-outs, few catches, that is something we take a lot of pride in. We want to be the best fielding unit in the competition and (are) making sure that we tick all the boxes, so far we have picked few boxes, there are few more left.”
SRH skipper David Warner said that it was quite disappointing to lose three matches in a row.
“Yes, spot on (had another difficult night). I don’t know how to take that. It is quite disappointing.
“Two of us on the prime (me and Jonny Bairstow) acquired set and clearly my run out, Jonny stepping on his wickets and taking part in some false photographs within the center proved that if you do not have a man there ultimately or two guys there on the finish, you are not going to win video games,” he mentioned.
According to Warner, these scores of round 150 have been gettable.
“They are very chaseable, it’s just poor batting. If you get a partnership and have one guy at the end, like all the other teams batting first, they always had one person at the end, if you are able to do that, you can chase down 150 quite easily,” the Australian mentioned.
“It does need smart cricket in the middle and at the moment we haven’t been able to produce that. I think our bowlers adapted fantastic to this wicket, which is a lot slower than previous wickets.”
