Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said their batting performance against Rising Pune Supergiant in Qualifier 1 was their worst of this Indian Premier League.
"I think 160 was below par to be honest, having seen the scores chased here. Probably the worst batting performance of this season for us," said Rohit after Mumbai suffered a 20-run loss to Pune.
"We didn't have enough partnerships. It's crucial to get small partnerships in. They bowled well to restrict us and to take wickets in the middle overs. The shot selection is very important. You need to understand the situation and the conditions and respect them.
You've to pick the gaps and take it to the end and we didn't do that. It's not the end of the world, we still have one more shot in Bangalore," Rohit added.
