first_imgCaptain Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 56 guided Mumbai Indians (MI) to a five-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a thrilling Indian Premier League encounter on Monday.Rohit, who slammed six boundaries and one six in his 37-ball knock, and Jos Buttler (33) were the major contributors in Mumbai’s cause.With the win at the Wankhede, Mumbai moved to the top of the points table with eight wins out of 10 games fetching them 16 points. On the other hand, Bangalore have lost eight matches and are now decidedly out of the play-off race.Rohit lauded his team after the “clinical” performance and said Mumbai Indians want to be “ruthless” in their approach.”Overall clinical performance. We bowled and batted pretty well. We won it in the last over, but I will take that win.”We want to finish on top. We want to be ruthless in our approach. The tournament doesn’t end here. We have to stick together and play as well as a team which we have done so far,” Rohit said.Rohit, who also completed 4000 runs in the IPL today, said this knock will give him confidence going forward into the tournament.It was Rohit’s second half-century in this edition of the league.”Always good to spend time out in the middle. I am feeling good. It was just a matter of spending time out. I pick my areas and back myself. You get value for your shots. You need not hit the ball hard. Finding the gap is important,” he said.advertisementlast_img
