Fans came in hoards to see their favourite batter Rohit Sharma score runs at the Wankhede Stadium. This was Mumbai's first game at their home stadium and everyone expected Rohit to treat the crowd to a masterclass. But it turned out to be an anti-climax as Rohit got out on a golden duck in the MI vs RR match. 

Rohit is known to have problems against left-arm seamers and it again proved to be his downfall in IPL 2024 match. Trent Boult bowled an unplayable delivery which cut a little away and Rohit edged that to Sanju Samson, who took a superb catch behind the stumps.
