Birthday boy Rohit Sharma has concede that his team was desperate for a win after eight consecutive losses, adding that he wanted “to try a lot of things” but was shackled because in the Indian Premier League 2022 had did not went on their way.
The win though will give Sharma some breathing space and the skipper was a much-relieved person after the five-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals at the DY Patil Stadium on Saturday, despite the skipper himself scoring just two runs.
“I’ll definitely take this (win),” said a relieved Sharma.
“This is how we play and our real potential came out today (Saturday). We kept taking wickets, which made it difficult for them,” said Sharma.
“We wanted to try a lot of things but it’s not easy when you have a season like this. The conditions were different here — the ball grips more here while the pitches are flat at other venues. We were never blown away by any opposition,” he added.
“We played very well – the bowlers came together, the batters did the job as well,” he added.
