Rohit Sharma Takes Charge Of Batting For MI Against KKR In IPL 2020

KKR Fold Up Early To Lose First IPL 2020 Match
KKR came out for batting, and everyone expected a tight match. However, no one from the team took a moment to rise to the occasion and put up a fight. The best scorer for the team was Pat Cummins who made just 33 runs. Even the captain Dinesh Kartik went back to the pavilion after 30 runs. With this, Mumbai became the only team to beat another team twenty times in IPL history. However, KKR will look to improve their game before their next match.
Pat Cumins Leaks Away A Lot Of Runs
Pat Cumins was a star in last year’s IPL. Due to the same reason, he was one of the most expensive players to go under the hammer during the auction. However, he failed to live up to the hype as he gave away too many runs. Cumins bowled three overs out during which he gave away 49 runs. Too much giving away meant he did not even get to bowl full four overs in the match. However, he will look to improve his game and justify the price tag for which KKR got him.
