On the other hand, the Mumbai-born player has hit two fifties in the last three games. However, those innings haven’t helped the team win the game. In the game against Delhi, he scored 54 off 33 as his side was chasing a target of 216. The two-time were restricted to 177 all-out, losing the game by 44 runs. In the last game against Rajasthan, the right-hander scored an explosive 85 off 51, while his team was chasing a target of 218.
At one stage, the team looked like chasing the target but the hat-trick from Yuzvendra Chahal meant that the Men in Purple and Gold lost the game by seven runs. With this loss, the team has now registered three-consecutive losses in the tournament. They have lost to Delhi, Hyderabad, and Rajasthan in the last three games.
They will play their next game against table toppers, Gujarat on April 23 at the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Mumbai. Gujarat is on the top of the table with five wins in six games.
