IPL 2021: Will Hitman Rohit play against KKR?, Mumbai Indians head coach Jayawardene gave this answer

During the toss, Rohit said that we want to bat first in this match. The figures (equations for reaching the playoffs) are in front of us, they are intimidating. Still, we are going to give our hundred percent here.

The team of Mumbai Indians came out to play against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the most important match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League. To reach the playoffs in this match, the Mumbai team had to do something which is considered impossible. Captain Rohit Sharma decided to bat first after winning the toss against Hyderabad. At the time of the toss, he told that the equations for the playoffs are such that they are intimidating.

During the toss, Rohit said, "We want to bat first in this match. The figures (equations for reaching the playoffs) are in front of us, they are intimidating. Still, we are going to give our hundred percent here. Hopefully, we go out on the field and do what we love doing the most. The most important thing is that we enjoy the match to the fullest. This season has been full of ups and downs for us so far.

He further said, let's see because we will have a very good opportunity in front of us. Our team here has to do something which to date has never been done in the history of this tournament. Rather, this has never happened in an international match even before today.

The batsmen of our team could not do well together and the team did not perform well in the UAE stage. Then there is also the matter that the players of this team have shown a very good game for their same team before this. Not all things can happen. We have made some changes to today's match. Krunal Pandya has been brought back to the team, while Piyush Chawla will also Kheteren today's match. This is going to be his first match for Mumbai. Sourav Tiwary and Jayant Yadav have not found a place in today's playing XI.
