Mumbai Indians were handed over their second defeat in a row after a three-match unbeaten streak, first against the Punjab Kings and then the Gujarat Titans in Ahmedabad. There has been a consistent slump in their batting unit and one man who has actually started showing a glimpse of his former self, Rohit Sharma is somehow getting those starts but has been down and out for a while now from the usual reckoning self that we know him for.
He has been announced as part of the Indian squad that will be in action against the Australian cricket team at the Oval for the WTC final. One of the major elements that would remain in play for the Indian skipper is how he manages his workload from hereon as he will also have to make himself available for the WTC finale.

Gavaskar said, “I would like to see some change in the batting order for Mumbai Indians. Honestly, I would also say that Rohit should maybe also take a break for the time being, and keep himself fit for the World Test Championship final. He can come back again for the last few matches, but right now, he should take a little bit of a breather himself.”
