Rohit Sharma's struggles continued in IPL 2024 as he was dismissed for just 19 runs in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders played at Eden Gardens. He took 24 balls for his knock in the run-chase of 158 runs in 16 overs. The 37-year-old hit 1 four and 1 six during his short stay at the crease before being dismissed by KKR mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy.

In his last six innings, Rohit has not touched the 20-run mark. He has reached the double-digits only twice and has scored just 52 runs in his last six innings. This sums up his performance during the second part of the group stage.

But this wasn't the case in the start. Rohit had a fantastic start to this season as he scored 297 runs in the first 7 games. During this time, he also scored a century against Chennai Super Kings at Wankhede Stadium. But since then, he hasn't looked at his best. His struggles have affected Mumbai Indians' performance as well as the five-time champions became the first team to be eliminated from IPL 2024.

While some fans called him a liability on the team, some also backed him for the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be held in the West Indies and the USA just after the IPL ends.
