Known for his wide range of shots, ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma is one of the most dangerous opening batters in the limited over formats. Unfortunately, the Mumbai Indians skipper is not up to his best so far in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Even though, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav's spectacular show helped Mumbai Indians chase down a mammoth target of 215 in an encounter with Punjab Kings in Mohali on Wednesday, MI skipper Rohit Sharma continued with his bad form who was sent back to the pavilion without scoring a run. 

Soon after Rohit Sharma was dismissed for a duck, Punjab Kings took to Twitter to troll the aggressive batter and wrote “R0”. 

However, the tweet tuned a boomerang when the fans of Rohit Sharma trolled Punjab Kings brutally after they lost to Mumbai Indians by six wickets. Even MI also came up with a befitting reply to Punjab Kings tweet. 

In its reply, MI pointed out that while Rohit has six IPL champion titles under his belt, the Kings XI Punjab and Punjab Kings have a duck.



Later, Punjab Kings deleted its tweet after losing to MI. 

Ishan Kishan slammed a terrific 75 while Suryakumar Yadav brought out his wide array of shots in a whirlwind 66 as the duo shared a 116-run partnership for the third wicket to help Mumbai Indians chase down 215 and beat Punjab Kings by six wickets at the IS Bindra PCA Stadium.

Brief Scores: Punjab Kings 214/3 in 20 overs (Liam Livingstone 82 not out, Jitesh Sharma 49 not out; Piyush Chawla 2/29, Arshad Khan 1/48) lost to Mumbai Indians 216/4 in 18.5 overs (Ishan Kishan 75, Suryakumar Yadav 66; Nathan Ellis 2/34, Rishi Dhawan 1/20) by six wickets
