Well, as the game kickstarted, Shreyas Iyer won the toss and chose to bowl first. Rohit Sharma along with the star opener Ishan Kishan walked out to open the innings for Mumbai Indians, however, the team suffered a big blow early in the innings as their main man Rohit Sharma was dismissed by the purple cap holder Umesh Yadav.

The wicket took place in the 5th ball of the second over when Rohit tried to force a boundary and went for a pull-off the short delivery. The ball took his top edge and it filled miles up behind him. KKR keeper Sam Billings ran backward to catch the ball and seemed to be on a collision course with another fielder however the communication worked as the latter pulled out. Rohit Sharma was dismissed after scoring only 3 runs.

Meanwhile, fans on social media were left disappointed with the poor performance of Rohit, who is now getting trolled left, right and center.
