Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bowl first in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
Rohit explained his decision, saying his team needed to put the heavy loss in the previous game behind them and not worry about the points table.
Rohit’s Royal Challengers counterpart Virat Kohli joked that no matter what he called, he was going to lose the toss, adding that his side just needed to put enough runs on the board.
