Mumbai Indians' skipper Rohit Sharma showered praise on a 'special' bowling performance from his pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah. But, at the same time, Sharma expressed his disappointment with the performance of his batters after losing to Kolkata Knight Riders by 52 runs at the DY Patil Stadium on Monday.

Bumrah's riveting spell of 5/10, which included three wickets in an over and 18 dot balls, went in vain as Kolkata kept their slim hopes of making the IPL 2022 playoffs alive. For Mumbai, barring Ishan Kishan's 51, none of the other batters in a line-up minus an injured Suryakumar Yadav could get the big runs.

"We would take that total any day on that kind of a pitch. To see how things unfolded in the second half of the innings for us was a great effort from the bowling unit. Bumrah was special today. But I'm disappointed with the way we batted. I thought it was a par score on that pitch but it was a little poor from the bat from us," said Sharma after the match.
