Watch: Rohit Sharma unleashes beast mode in MI nets ahead of vital clash vs RCB


Rohit Sharma was seen showcasing his usual big-hitting prowess with a brilliant lofted straight-drive in the MI nets, ahead of his side’s high-value fixture against RCB in the Indian Premier League (2024), on April 11. The batter was seen practising his usual aggressive batting in preparation for the clash against the Faf du Plessis-led side, which will see both teams try to clinch some much-needed points after their dismal start in IPL 2024. The fixture will have major focus on Rohit as he faces off against another iconic India batter and his teammate, Virat Kohli, who has been in terrific form this season.

MI shared a video on their social media handle showing Rohit hitting a sublime shot down the ground, impressing even himself. The post has only amplified the excitement amongst the massive MI fanbase for a big innings from their former captain at the Wankhede Stadium. There has been a lot of speculation around Rohit’s involvement in the team, ever since Hardik Pandya took over the captaincy of MI ahead of IPL 2024.

MI have had a dismal start to their IPL 2024 campaign, which has seen them lose 3 of their 4 matches so far. Their solitary win came in their previous clash against an equally struggling DC on April 7. Along with the team, Rohit has also put in regulation performance with the bat, which has seen him score only 118 runs across the four matches, with his best score being a 27-ball 49 against DC.

On the other hand, RCB have been equally dismal in IPL 2024, which has also seen them win only 1 out of their 4 matches. This only amps up the excitement and speculation around the high-value fixture, as both sides will be looking to turn their fortunes with a win on Thursday. With MI coming into this clash on top of a win, it will hand the home side a big boost in confidence as compared to their opponents who lost their previous match to RR.
