‘I asked him what’s next? and Rohit Sharma said…’: Mark Boucher opens up on the batsman’s future with Mumbai Indians | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Mumbai Indians (MI) head coach Mark Boucher reflected on the various challenges the team encountered during the two-month tournament following a disappointing end to an already-discouraging season. Despite a promising start from opener Rohit Sharma, MI finished at the bottom of the points table following a loss to the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in their final match.
When asked about Rohit’s future with the team, Boucher stated, “For me, he is a master of his own destiny.It’s a big auction next season who knows what’s going to happen?” The head coach described Rohit’s season as one of two halves, with a strong beginning that included a century against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and a belief that he was on track to score significant runs.

Boucher also revealed that he had a conversation with Rohit the previous night, reviewing the season and discussing the opener’s future plans. “I had a discussion with Rohit Sharma last night. We reviewed the season this year. After that, I asked him what’s next? and Rohit said ‘the World Cup'”, he added.
Despite Rohit’s impressive 68 off 38 deliveries against LSG, his batting performance throughout the season was inconsistent. After a promising start, his form dipped, with four single-digit scores in his next six appearances. Boucher attributed this to the nature of T20 cricket and Rohit’s aggressive approach as an opening batter.

The match against LSG saw MI fans experiencing mixed emotions. While they celebrated Rohit’s explosive fifty, they also witnessed their team suffer their tenth loss of the season and finish at the bottom of the points table. LSG’s KL Rahul (55 runs from 41 balls) and Nicholas Pooran (75 runs from 29 balls) played crucial roles in setting a target of 215 runs for MI.
Despite a strong start from Rohit and Dewald Brevis (23 runs from 20 balls) in the run chase, and a valiant effort by Naman Dhir (62* runs from 28 balls), MI fell short by 18 runs, concluding a disappointing season for the team.
