Rohit Sharma-Arjun Tendulkar: Rohit Sharma will take a big risk on Arjun Tendulkar and feed him against Gujarat Titans so that his spirits don’t break and his confidence remains intact.
New Delhi: In IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians are now competing with Gujarat Titans. After the defeat at the hands of Punjab Kings in the last match at home, a win is necessary for Mumbai in this match. In such a situation, Captain Rohit Sharma can be seen taking a big risk regarding Arjun Tendulkar. By the way, similar situations had arisen in front of Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya, as Rohit Sharma is facing today, but then he did not take the risk.
Now the question is what are the circumstances in which first Hardik Pandya and now Rohit Sharma are trapped. So there is no need to go back much for this. Just have to keep the whole scene of the last match of Mumbai Indians in front of the eyes. Remember that over of Mumbai Indians bowler Arjun Tendulkar, which became the most expensive over of this season.

When Arjun Tendulkar’s over changed the script of the match
For Mumbai Indians defending the target of 202 runs, everything was going well till 15 overs of Punjab Kings’ innings in this match. It even seemed that the Mumbai team would easily take out the match. But, then Arjun Tedulkar comes to bowl the 16th over of Punjab’s innings and the whole picture changes.
Arjun looted 31 runs in a single over
Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma’s decision to hand over the ball to Arjun Tendulkar was not wrong. Because, in his first two overs, he had taken 1 wicket for 17 runs. But Punjab batsmen Sam Karan and Harpreet Bhatia were looking for this over. Together they muscled Junior Tendulkar.
In this over of Arjun Tendulkar, Karan and Bhatia together scored 31 runs with 2 sixes and 3 fours. In this way, this over became the costliest over of IPL 2023. His bowling graph which was 1 for 17 in the first 2 overs became 1 for 48 after 3 overs. The whole match was overturned in this one over. The match, which was being seen in Mumbai, went into Punjab’s pocket after that.
Yash Dayal looted 31 runs then GT got him out
However, Arjun Tendulkar is not the first who has conceded 31 runs in an over of IPL 2023. Yash Dayal of Gujarat Titans has already made these shameful records. The result was that after that match, he has not been seen playing on the field. Hardik Pandya has got him out.
Rohit will take a big risk on Arjun!
But, Rohit Sharma will not do that work at all. He will take a big risk on Arjun Tendulkar and feed him so that his spirits don’t break. May his confidence remain intact. Because, except this one over, he has bowled brilliantly in IPL 2023.
