The Mumbai Indians (MI) have managed to stay alive in the tournament following a thrilling win over the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Wednesday. Having been a must-win game for them, their ace bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled a magical spell at the death to snatch the victory from the jaws of defeat. The skipper Rohit Sharma was relieved after the game and lauded his bowlers for putting up a brilliant show. However, he has been punished by the team management following the victory and was seen in a hilarious Emoji uniform on Thursday.

The franchise has been rather crude in their sanctions, punishing the players for missing their gym training or forgetting their kit by making them wear the Emoji kit of their team. It is filled with the funny emojis of the players in the squad and Rohit is not the first to wear it. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Rahul Chahar have also been on the receiving end before and now it seems that the skipper of the team has made a mistake.

Ritika’s Instagram story

Rohit Sharma was seen in the emoji kit while leaving the hotel room after their game against KXIP. His wife Ritika Sajdeh clicked his pictures and updated her Instagram Story while enjoying the expressions of her husband. Though it is still not clear the reason for this hilarious punishment, Rohit was looking to save his face while she was clicking his pictures in a funny uniform. “@rohitsharma45 This was inevitable,” Ritika captioned her story.

As far as his IPL campaign is concerned, Rohit has been miserably out of form this season with the bat. He has been struggling to score runs consistently and has only mustered 273 runs in 13 outings. While the tournament is approaching the business end, it is crucial for him to hit the straps and contribute towards his team’s cause. Mumbai will play their last league game against Delhi Daredevils (DD) on Sunday which is again a must-win game for them.
