Mumbai, April 13: Succumbing to their second straight defeat in the Indian Premier League 2015 (IPL8), Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma on Sunday (April 12) said his batsmen got out to poor shots against the Kings XI Punjab here.
Kings XI won the game by 18 runs at the Wankhede stadium. "I thought we lost it in the first six overs. We lost too many wickets," said Rohit. (Sehwag calls Harbhajan 'mad')
"We played some stupid shots in the chase. We have some work to be done," he said, after Mumbai Indians finished at 159/7 replying to kings XI Punjab's 177/5.
Rohit was all praise for Harbhajan Singh and Jagadeesha Suchith, who took only 37 balla to form a 100-run partnership.
Harbhajan hit a scintillating 24-ball 64, while Suchith remained unbeaten on 34.
"They "Suchith and Harbhajan) played really well...We can learn a lot from Bhajji and Suchith," said Rohit, whose team had lost to Kolkata Knight Riders in the tournament lung-opener.
