Mumbai : Mumbai Indians (MI) captain Rohit Sharma expressed happiness over winning the Indian Premier League (IPL) title for the 5th time, saying it was important to maintain the winning habit in which his team was successful.

Mumbai defeated Delhi Capitals (DC) by 5 wickets in the final to win the IPL title for the 5th time in the last 8 years and Rohit said that he is happy with the team’s performance throughout the season.

Rohit said, ‘I am very happy with the way our team performed throughout the season. I said at the start of the tournament that we need to maintain the habit of winning. We could not expect more from it. We started our efforts with the first ball and then did not look back. A lot of credit goes to the support staff as well. ‘

He said, ‘I had to find the right balance to get the best out of the players. I am not one of those captains who are after the players. It is important to instill confidence in them. Krunal, Hardik and Pollard have been playing their roles for a long time and they know what to do.’

Mumbai Indians did not keep Rahul Chahar in the playing XI in the final and Rohit called it a strategic decision. He said, “Rahul could not play in the final and in such a situation it was necessary to make sure that he understood that he did nothing wrong and it was a tactical move.” We also made sure that Suryakumar Yadav and Ishaan Kishan played with full confidence.’

To save Rohit from getting run out, Suryakumar lost his wicket, the Mumbai captain said, “I should have lost my wicket for the kind of form he was in, but he batted well throughout the tournament.”

Mumbai coach Mahela Jayewardene said that he did not put any pressure on the players from the beginning and allowed them to play freely.

Jayewardene said, “We had prepared very well and we organized things well and made sure that there was no pressure on the players. Taking long shots is in Mumbai’s DNA. We tried to balance this time.”

He said, “My job is to help the players and explain their role to them. Our team has many leaders and excellent support staff who helped all the time.”
