Rohit praised the star performers of his team including Uttarakhand pacer Akash Madhwal “It is a good pitch. If you apply yourselves, you can get runs. Those four guys played well. Akash (Madhwal) was with us last year as well. We saw the skill set. We wanted to give him a role. He is quite confident. He leads his Uttarakhand team. He knows what field he needs.”

Chasing a stiff 200-run target set by Royal Challengers Bangalore, MI on Tuesday romped home in 16.3 overs.

“We restricted them to less than 200. Was a great effort, It could have been 220 or more. I have no idea what a safe score is. In the last four games we have seen an excess of 200 has been scored. Most of the teams are taking risks and it is coming off.

“The batters are taking risks and 200-plus scores are being chased. The mindset of the batters is to do something special for the team and it is coming off as well,” said Rohit at the post-match presentation.

Mumbai with the victory moved to the 3rd spot in the IPL 2023 points table. Suryakumar Yadav was awarded the Player of the Match award for his match-winning knock.
