#IPL2022, MIvsPBKS: Rohit Sharma wins toss, opts to field first

News

Pune: Rohit Sharma has won the toss in the 22nd match of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022 and opted to field first against Punjab Kings.

We will bowl first. Looks like a similar pitch to the ones we have played, there will be help for the pacer, need to exploit. Just one change – Tymal Mills is back, replacing Ramandeep. Just want the guys to keep their heads high, it’s important not to lose focus, keep trying harder and harder to get the points. Looking forward to doing well as a team,” said Rohit Sharma after the toss. 

We didn’t think about the toss and were prepared to do both. No changes in the playing XI for us, we’ve been playing good cricket, need to win the big moments. Jonty is a great personality, nice to have him around,” said Mayank Agarwal after the toss. 

“t has been fun, I’ve really enjoyed my role in this Punjab side. Many people know the way we wanted to play and we are trying to incorporate that in the team. We have played some good cricket, hopefully we can get a bit smart and keep entertaining the people. My bowling is something I have worked on over the last couple of years, just trying something different and try to give my team an option to use me as a bowler. It something I have really worked hard, it has been fun. It (bowling) doesn’t come as naturally as my batting does, so I have enjoyed that challenge. Everywhere you go the conditions are different, I guess in the IPL it’s more off the field than on the field, it’s a Mumbai game so there’s pressure on you,” said Liam Livingstone before the toss.
