Story highlights

IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians' (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma imitated some legendary MI cricketers' mannerism and playing style and shared the video on Instagram. Here's the viral clip:

Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) haven't been at their very best in the IPL 2021 edition. The defending champions and five-time winners still remain alive in the playoffs race, however, the Mumbai franchise have a tough battle with the two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in order to grab the fourth spot.

Despite MI having lots to do in order to qualify for the playoffs, the 34-year-old Rohit has been at his cheeky best off the 22-yard cricket strip. Recently, Rohit turned into a prankster and hilariously trolled his wife Ritika Sajdeh, sharing the video on his official Instagram handle. On Wednesday (October 6), Rohit once again entertained his fans and came up with a hilarious video where he imitated some of the legendary cricketers, such as Sachin Tendulkar, MI coach Mahela Jayawardene and Harbhajan Singh.

While the comment section is filled with many names, Rohit imitated MI's former skippers Tendulkar, Bhajji and current head coach Jayawardene. 

On Tuesday (October 5), Rohit-led MI pulled off a thumping win over one-time winners Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah in match 51. Asking RR to bat first, Rohit & Co. rode on Nathan Coulter-Nile's 4-fer and Jimmy Neesham's three-wicket haul to bundle out RR for a mere 90. In reply, MI chased down the total with 8 wickets and 70 balls to spare. 

Rohit-led MI, thus, remain in contention for the fourth playoffs spot. However, they still need to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by a big margin and hope for RR to beat KKR to progress into the last four.
