Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma to is very particular with his bats. The Hitman is a video shared by Mumbai Indians revealed the number of bats he has been carrying for the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) in UAE.
“I have taken around nine bats with me,” disclosed Rohit.

“My bat usually lasts long, pretty long. I would say about four to five months. But in the end, everything depends on the format I am playing.

A lot of innovative shots you need to practice so there are chances that your bat might break,” Rohit said in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians.
“During the IPL and T20 format, my bat usually lasts for a month or two. Especially now that we know that the times are tough, we do not know if the courier will reach on time,” said Rohit.
