Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and choose to bowl against Rajasthan Royals in their IPL 2022 clash on Saturday.
“No particular reason; we’ve seen the trend [of chasing] in the tournament. Dew is not going to be a factor tonight but we wanted to have the score in front of us as a batting group. We’re here to correct the wrongs from the last game. We’re a young team that is learning every game. We’re playing the same team,” said Rohit Sharma.
RR captain Sanju Samson would have bowled first as well. “We would have liked to bowl first on this wicket too. The chatter in the camp is just to be smarter and understand what the conditions demand. We were lucky to get a strong team at the auction,” he said.
