Rohit Sharma wins a special medal in the IPL 2024 for his outstanding performance against LSG

May 18, Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: Rohit Sharma, the opening batsman for the Mumbai Indians (MI), was awarded a special medal for his brilliant 68-run performance against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the storied Wankhede Stadium.

At the Wankhede Stadium on this sorrowful evening, MI supporters were feeling a range of emotions. Even while they were ecstatic with Rohit’s brilliant 68-run innings, they also watched as their side lost 10 games and fell to the bottom of the standings.

Owner of the Mumbai Indians, Nita Ambani, gave Rohit the unique award in the MI locker room. The former MI captain ended a string of dismal performances in the Mumbai encounter against LSG by hitting an amazing 68 off 38 deliveries.

The former captain was seen being praised by MI head coach Mark Boucher in a video that the team uploaded on their official social media account, X.

“And Rohit had a terrific start today for the batting men. In front of the MI team, head coach Boucher stated, “Well done.”

Prior to the game, MI lost the IPL 2024 match at the Wankhede Stadium by an 18-run margin against LSG despite fierce blows from Rohit and Naman Dhir.

MI won the toss and elected to put LSG in to bat first. However, this did not work out well for them as KL Rahul (55 runs from 41 balls, 3 fours, and 3 sixes) and Nicholas Pooran (75 runs from 29 balls, 5 fours, and 8 sixes) struck some explosive shots in the first inning. The other two noteworthy LSG batsmen were Marcus Stoinis (28 runs from 22 balls, 5 fours) and Ayush Badoni (22* runs from 10 balls, 1 four, and 2 sixes), who helped the visitors reach 214/6.

The hosts had a fantastic start to the run chase, needing to reach a 215-run target, but rain had other ideas, and the game was called off for a short period after the completion of the fourth over. That did not, however, derail the MI openers, as a partnership of 88 runs was shared by Rohit Sharma (68 runs from 38 balls, 10 fours and 3 sixes) and Dewald Brevis (23 runs from 20 balls, 1 four and 2 sixes).

The MI dugout had optimism after Naman Dhir’s (62* runs from 28 balls, 4 fours, and 5 sixes) incredible knock in the latter portion of the run chase. However, he was unable to seal the victory and gave up an 18-run deficit.
