Rohit has been struggling for runs this IPL season, having scored just 184 runs at 18.39 and a strike rate of 126.89. In the last two games, he couldn’t open his account. In fact, Rohit got his 16th duck, the most in IPL history, during the last match against Chennai Super Kings.

“Rohit Sharma is not battling with the bowlers but with himself. There is a mental block,” Sehwag said on Star Sports’ Cricket Live.

“There’s no problem with his batting technique. Some confusion is going on in his mind. But the day he gets going, we will make up for all the previous matches.”

Five-time champions MI are languishing at the seventh spot with 10 points following five losses and as many wins. They suffered a six-wicket loss to CSK in their last match after a poor start saw them managing just 139 for eight, a target overhauled by their opponents in 17.4 overs.

Opening the innings, Cameron Green and Ishan Kishan scored just 6 and 7 respectively and former Australia batter Aaron Finch said the Mumbai openers look confused and they should learn from the way CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad goes about his business.

“MI’s opening combination looks confused they are taking a lot of risk. They were looking to hit all the balls. They should learn from Ruturaj Gaikwad, he remains so calm in the middle and hits the loose balls,” Finch said.

Mumbai Indians hold the 8th spot in the IPL 2023 Points Table with 5 wins out of 10 matches they played so far.
