In the 40th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Rohit Sharma got a move on with the score for Mumbai Indians with some calculated hitting in the 16th over of the match. Kolkata Knight Riders’s talisman Morne Morkel was treated with utter disdain. First, Morkel gave some room to Rohit and the Mumbai captain obliged by slashing the ball over the cover-point boundary. After a wide, Morkel slightly over-pitched the ball and Rohit then pushed his body weight on the shot and hit it on the rise for another huge six. Just when Mumbai had seized initiative, Corey Anderson tamely chipped the last ball of the over straight to Piyush Chawla’s hands at short-mid wicket.

Shakib came back for another over and had Kieron Pollard in a tangle off the first few deliveries. The West Indian looked ill at ease when the ball was keeping low and Mumbai had to settle for singles. After three runs coming of the first five balls, Rohit then moved to the leg side and confidently cut the ball to the point boundaries. Earlier, Kolkata won the toss and chose to bowl at Cuttack. Kolkata made one change as Shakib Al Hasan came in to replace Jacques Kallis. This may have something to do with the nature of the pitch. Mumbai Indians are unchanged in this game.
