Rohit Sharma is known to be the most successful captain in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He has guided his team Mumbai Indians (MI) to win three tournament titles in the last 10 years including the last one in 2017. Despite being the defending champions, Rohit and his MI crew have so far disappointed their fans with their performance in this season. Despite having a pool of magnificent cricketers in the camp, their efforts somehow have fallen short in winning more than one game.
It hasn’t been easy for the captain Rohit who has lost 5 out of 6 games. His bat has been quiet in most of the games as he has scored 140 runs (including a fifty) averaging just 23.33.
While on social media, people have been backlashing the MI skipper for his continuous failure. Here’s how he was trolled for an underdog performance.
Rohit Sharma should try coming in at number 11 in the next match!!

While people have been badly trolling a fantastic Indian cricketer like Rohit Sharma during his rough patch, one mustn’t forget that this is the only man who has smashed double hundred thrice in ODIs and also the joint-fastest batsman to have a T20I century.
And tonight, he has yet another chance to prove his mettle in this tournament when they play the Chennai Super Kings in Pune. Afterall, the fans should also remember that MI is a team which knows well how to make a strong comeback after a poor start.
