Watch: Rohit's IPL 2024 Goes From Bad To Worse, Suhana Khan Holds Her Head

Rohit Sharma's IPL 2024 has gone from bad to worse. For the sixth straight game, the Indian cricket team skipper failed to strike big with his team - Mumbai Indians - under pressure. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit was out for 19 in 24 balls. His scores in the last five innings read 4, 11, 4, 8, 6. Chasing 158 in 16 overs, the platform was there for Rohit but he could not capitalise. He failed and that was a massive blow for MI. The team ultimately lost by 18 runs.

The reaction in the rival camp was also one of shock. KKR co-owner Juhi Chawla, Suhann Khan, daughter of another KKR co-owner Shah Rukh Khan, and Ananya Pandey looked shocked.

Former South Africa star Shaun Pollock recently said that the manner in which Rohit Sharma has been getting out is bound to give Indian cricket some sleepless nights.

"It's the manner in which he's getting out that will be more concerning for him. He's one of those when he's playing straight down the ground, there's not much that can go wrong, but he has tried to introduce a bit of a fiddly element to the game. To get the odd scoop here but he's popping the odd one up in the air. If he gets a good nut, he won't be too concerned, but to be honest, he's kind of got out to soft dismissals, to be honest."

He added that the T20 World Cup selection process may have played a part.

"I presume for the last few weeks, there has been a few conversations about trying to pick the Indian team. With that stress of finding the right balance, which player should be picked, all of a sudden, you are back in captaincy mode.... The naming of the side, going to the press conference, explaining why you have picked a certain may have added to the stress," Pollock added.
