Captain Rohit: 'Malinga is a champion'

Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma picked Lasith Malinga over Hardik Pandya in the last over of the Indian Premier League 2019 final. 

Rohit was ready to carry the cross had the decision to use Malinga backfired but had a gut feeling that Malinga will be able to pull it off. 

The Sri Lankan repaid the faith his skipper showed in him defending nine runs off the final over. 

Rohit said, "Malinga is a champion, he has been doing it for many years for us. I was thinking of Hardik for the final over, but I wanted to back someone who has been in that situation for us before, and Malinga has been there many times."
