The fact that the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are at the top of the points table in this edition’s Indian Premier League (IPL) isn’t a surprise. The team, captained by the enigmatic MS Dhoni, won their opening three matches and is the team to beat. Their last victory came against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai where they also beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
The Super Kings will now be facing the Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium. They have beaten Mumbai thrice in eight attempts at the iconic venue and a cracker of a game can be expected tomorrow under the floodlights. In the meantime, CSK needs to be wary of one player and that is the very experienced Rohit Sharma, the MI captain, who has a decent record at the Wankhede.
Record against the opposition (CSK) in the IPL:
In 23 innings, Rohit has scored 606 runs at an average of 30.30 to go with 6 fifties to his credit.
In his last 6 innings against the mighty Super Kings, Rohit has scores of 56*, 15, 50, 19, 18, 50
Record at the venue (Wankhede):
Sharma has scored 1713 runs from 61 Twenty20 innings at Wankhede at an average of 34.26 with 13 fifties to his name. He knows this ground by the back of his palm.
In his last 5 innings across all formats, Rohit has decent enough numbers that can’t be ignored by any means. He has scores of 32, 48, 14, 5, 56, 95.
In his last 6 T20 innings, the 31-year-old Rohit has scored 32, 48, 14, 5, 38, 50.
The Mumbaikar costs 10.5 credits in the batsmen category and is picked by 79% of teams. In Dream XI, he can be risked as either the captain or the vice-captain, bearing in his mind his numbers against CSK and also at the venue.
