Rohit Sharma's ongoing form is a cause of worry not only for Mumbai Indians but also for Team India as the World Test Championship final is hovering. The skipper of both outfits endured another failure on Tuesday in the MI vs RCB IPL 2023 match. However, his dismissal from yesterday's match is apparently questionable as fans and former cricketer Mohammad Kaif has also raised doubts about the third umpire's decision.

Having struggled to find his usual touch throughout the IPL 2023, Rohit Sharma was yet again finding it hard to middle on Tuesday against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Unlike the last two innings, this time Sharma had survived the initial proceedings and was looking to pick up. However, after contributing a meager 7 off 7, Sharma was caught in front for a LBW in Wanindu Hasaranga's over. The MI captain jogged forward to work the ball through the leg side but missed the ball that hit the pad. An appeal broke out which was turned down by the onfield umpire but RCB took the decision up, where Rohit Sharma was adjudged out.
