Rohit Sharma’s Statements

” I have played with Piyush since U-19 days and I know he is a very attacking bowler which is something we wanted in our spin bowling department. He was a good buy, to get him into our squad. He is one of the highest wicket-takers in the IPL. He knows the format and opposition, he knows the players,” Rohit said in a video posted on the official Twitter account of Mumbai Indians.

Chawla said: “I got to know that I have been picked by Mumbai Indians at the auction, so I was quite happy and excited because you want to be a part of the team which is a defending champion and that has done so well in the IPL. So it’s really nice.” Chawla said:

“I have seen Rahul, I have played cricket with Jayant Yadav and Krunal Pandya. It is very important to share each other’s experiences. There would be many things that I know and they wouldn’t, it works vice-versa as well,” he added.
