Twitter Reactions: Fans blame Rohit Sharma’s captaincy for loss against Delhi Capitals

Mumbai Indians squared off against Delhi Capitals today at the Brabourne Stadium and DC ended up winning the match after a thrilling neck-to-neck battle between the two sides. However, Mumbai Indians were the better side for almost the entirety of the match and DC turned the tables at the very last moment, thanks to the amazing displays of Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav. These two players completely change the fate of the match with their explosive batting. However, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma’s captaincy was questionable today, particularly near the death overs of the second innings.

When Delhi Capitals’ two batters Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav were all out attacking Mumbai Indians, and they needed 28 runs to win in the last 3 overs, Rohit Sharma sent in Australian all-rounder Daniel Sams to bowl the 18th over. And that turned out to be the biggest blunder of Rohit Sharma for the night as he conceded as many as 24 runs off that over and the game was pretty much finished right there.

18th Over: 6 1 6 4 1 6 (24 runs)

As a result, DC needed just 4 more runs to win which they got in just two deliveries of the 19th over.

As it turns out, fans are now blaming Rohit Sharma for the loss. Rohit gave a great performance with the bat as he scored 41 off 32 before being dismissed by Kuldeep Yadav but his captaincy performance has been put into question by cricket enthusiasts and fans as well.

Let us take a look at the Twitter reactions for Rohit Sharma’s captaincy blunder tonight.
