Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma stated that he was unaware of MI wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan's concussion in Qualifier 2 against Gujarat Titans. The five-time champions suffered a massive 62-run loss against the defending champions.
In the first innings, Ishan Kishan injured his eye as Chris Jordan's elbow hit Kishan's left eye. Hence the Jharkhand gloveman was taken off the field and replaced by Vishnu Vinod, who later came into the playing 11 as a concussion substitute.
Hence reacting to this performance and Ishan Kishan's injury, Rohit Sharma spoke about how Gujarat outplayed them and they failed to stitch up big partnerships in the second innings. Further addressing Ishan Kishan, Sharma talked about how he doesn't what happen to him.
He said, "It was a great total, Shubman batted really well. The wicket was really good. They got 25 extra, and with the batting we had, we were quite positive when we went in. Couldn't stitch enough partnerships. Green and Surya batted well but we lost our way. We spoke about giving it a good crack, we lost a couple of wickets in the powerplay and did not get the momentum when chasing a target like that.
"We wanted one batter just like how Shubman batted till the end, and you never know - one side is shorter and the wicket was good, anything can happen, credit where it is due Gujarat played well. We did not expect that, he had a bit of a concussion, I don't know how it happened [on Ishan]."
