​The second week of IPL 2022 concluded with the match between Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings. Hardik Pandya and Co. managed to beat their opposition by six wickets in a last ball thriller. They are currently the only side that is undefeated in the tournament.

The second week witnessed some outstanding individual performances, whether it was Avesh Khan’s magical spell against Sunrisers Hyderabad or Pat Cummins’ whirlwind fifty against Mumbai Indians.

Every year,  IPL brings an opportunity for players to showcase their talent in the world’s toughest T20 league. The opportunity also comes up with immense pressure to perform with the entire world keeping a close eye. While many had an exceptional time in the last week, some players also failed to perform as per expectations.

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma is one of the most destructive openers in world cricket at present. His ability to play big innings has enabled him to become one of the greatest batters in white-ball cricket. Since 2013, Sharma has been captaining Mumbai Indians and under his leadership, the team has lifted five IPL trophies. There’s no doubt he is one of the most successful players in the history of the IPL, he has looked far from his best so far in IPL 2022.

After a decent start against Delhi Capitals, where he scored 41 runs, the 34-year-old managed to accumulate only 13 runs in the next outings. The Mumbai batter looked uncomfortable against the swing of Umesh Yadav and Rasikh Salam.

Mumbai will hope their captain to return to form as they look to secure their first win of the season when they play Royal Challengers Bangalore.
