Rohit, who has endured a tough IPL season with the bat, has scored just 184 runs in the 10 games played so far at an average of 18.39 with only half a century left.
“Absolutely not,” Green told reporters when asked if there had been any talk of Rohit’s form in the MI camp.
“A legend that Rohit is, especially with Mumbai and everything he has done in his career, we actually support him. good pace at the top, so we absolutely support it.
Green, who replaced Rohit as fly-half against Chennai Super Kings, said he was happy to strike at any position for his team.
“Hopefully everything we learned in the first 10 games would hold us in good stead for this part (later). (From) now until the end of the tournament, (he) is going to be ruthless.
“”If you win a game, you are second, but if you lose a few games, you are second to last. We just have to put in our best performance and we know we have an amazing squad,” said the Australian.
Green said MI were not going to tinker with their attacking approach from the start, even if it wasn’t done collectively.
“Our discussions were the same way. Being aggressive in the power play might happen, sometimes it doesn’t. But the message is clear from the coaching staff.
“Sometimes you have to be smart on different wickets where it’s not so good to hit. But we have some amazing guys to beat me around. Lots of good cricketing brains around me,” he said. declared.
RCB hitter Kedar Jadhav, a recent addition to the comment box team, said the impact player rule has upset some things.
“The impact player rule has made teams and players more courageous and fearless. They have extra batter as a cushion so obviously they are expressing more and instead of 180 there are more totals over 200,” he said.
Jadhav said it will be a tough fight for most teams that are in contention to qualify for the playoffs.
“If we leave out one or two teams, most teams are in contention to make the top four. It’s pretty wide open right now,” he said.
The senior hitter said his form in the Ranji Trophy and his experience playing in the IPL have brought him back to the field this season with the RCB team.
“I’ve played cricket enough to understand that practicing every day helps. It’s important to have a new mindset, to give (yourself) space, so that the hunger comes back to score goals. points and to hit long. I took a break after the Ranji trophy but trained before the IPL,” he added.
Jadhav said Virat Kohli’s aggression and attitude work well for the team he plays for.
“That’s the slogan of RCB – play bold (and) I think that only comes from Virat Kohli. He has a strong personality, likes to lead from the front. Whatever it is, hitting or bowling, he wants contribute to winning games, regardless of the teams he plays for.
“It definitely rubs off on the team. Players want to play near that level, or near that intensity that he brings, in his stick or when he’s training,” Jadhav added.
