The childhood coach of Rohit Sharma is of the view that the captain of the Indian cricket team and Mumbai Indians should consider taking a break from the IPL now that the Mumbai Indians have been eliminated from the tournament and have no chances of play-offs qualification.
Mumbai Indians have lost 8 out of the 9 matches they have played in IPL 2022 so far and they don’t have even a mathematical chance of qualifying for the playoffs. India has to play a lot of cricket after the IPL and Rohit is the captain of India in all formats of the game.
Even if he is rested from a couple of the international assignments, he still has to play a lot of international games going forward and his fitness, particularly in terms of muscle injuries, hasn’t been great in recent times. He has had to miss a lot of overseas tours because of that.
Childhood coach of Rohit Sharma wants him to be fresh for international assignments
So, it is understandable from the point of view of the childhood coach of Rohit Sharma, who was interviewed by News 24, that he wants him to take a break from IPL right now, but realistically, it doesn’t seem possible. Because Mumbai Indians, after losing so many games this season, would now want to finish the season on a high and they would want their captain to be there to steady the ship.
Apart from Rohit Sharma, even Jasprit Bumrah is another Indian player, who has to play a lot of international cricket this year, and the Indian fans want him to be rested as well, with Mumbai Indians out of the qualification race, but it doesn’t seem as if the Mumbai Indians management is in any mood to rest their big guns.
Rohit Sharma, despite the suggestion of his childhood coach, is likely to play all the remaining games for Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL season.
