It is worth mentioning that the summit clash of the IPL 2023 went down to the wire, with CSK requiring ten runs of the last two balls and Jadeja hitting a six and a four on Mohit’s deliveries to finish the game in his team’s favour. Although Mohit had bowled pinpoint yorkers in the first four balls of the final over, he couldn’t maintain the length in the match-deciding moment of the game that eventually costed GT the trophy.
Mohit has now opened up about that final over against Jadeja while talking to the Indian Express. The right-arm pacer not only shed light on his strategy and state of mind during the crunch moment of the game but also revealed that he’s finding it difficult to move on and couldn’t sleep after the loss,
“My mind was very clear in what I wanted to do. In the nets, I had practiced such situations and I have been in such scenarios before too. So I said let me bowl all balls yorkers and was backing my instinct,” said Mohit.
“I couldn’t sleep. Sochta raha kya alag karta joh match jeet jaate (was thinking what different I could’ve done to make the team win). What if I could have bowled this ball or that ball? It’s not a nice feeling now. Somewhere something is missing but I’m trying to move on,” he added.
