The player Rohit imitated was Jayawardene’s stance before copying the bowling action of off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and appealing to the umpire in his trademark style.

The team is coming fresh after a thumping win over Rajasthan Royals in the previous encounter, as they first restricted their opponents for a paltry total of 90/9 before chasing down the target with eight wickets and a massive 70 balls to spare on the back of 25-ball 50 from Ishan Kishan.Β 

Talking after the win, Rohit Sharma said, β€œWe had to come here and do what we had to do, which was to get the two points… It was a chance to improve our run rate as well. We got off to a flier, and we said there is a chance for us to up the run rate. It was the perfect game for us to do that.”

He further added, β€œWe have been doing well and preparing well. All the bowlers came together and used the conditions well. [On playing SRH in the end] All eight teams are capable of beating each other. But the good thing is that KKR play before us, so we know what to do.”
