Overall, it was indeed good to see Rohit Sharma upping his game quite a bit in the tough game against Gujarat Titans. He was long been criticized for his poor form this season. Earlier, he registered 2 consecutive ducks against Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings.

In the previous game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit Sharma was in good touch with the bat was dismissed in an unlucky fashion for seven runs. However, in today’s game, he did make a proper statement by scoring 29 runs. This knock must have surely boosted his confidence levels.
