IPL 2019 Finals: Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma failed once again, this time in the bog one, the finals. Rohit managed to merely score 15 runs off 14 balls after Mumbai won the toss and opted to bowl first. It was a slower delivery at 119.8km/h, the knuckleball, that wobbled unpredictably in the air, swerved away, courtesy a falling seam towards the on-side, and Rohit was done in by the lack of pace – could not decide when to get his weight forward and has a waft at a transfer-of-weight drive into the off-side – his bottom-hand came off the bat, no control, and he got a healthy edge. Dhoni dived forward to pick up the catch that’s dipping on him.
Here is how he got trolled:
