The Psychology of a Golden Duck: Ex-England Star’s ‘Philosophical’ Verdict

Rohit Sharma was dismissed on a golden duck, which proved quite costly for the Mumbai Indians as they slumped to their third consecutive defeat of the season.

Rohit Sharma was dismissed on the fifth delivery of the first over by Trent Boult, with Sanju Samson taking a brilliant catch behind the wicket.

Talking about Rohit’s dismayed Sturat Braod said that Rohit’s wicket was very well planned behind the wickets.

On Star Sports, Sturat Braod said, “That was just fantastic bowling. That was just a beautiful plan from the Rajasthan Royals. I think you could tell from the celebration of the whole group that that was a setup. They thought that Rohit would be thinking that Boult was going to swing the ball back, and you can see from the seam release that it’s wobbling.

That means it’s a deliberate move across the right-handed batter with the slip in place and actually a fantastic catch as well. Low down to the right, it is always difficult for a wicketkeeper.”

Braod further added, “I think Rohit would probably be sitting in the changing room now, quite philosophical, like, really, I can’t do a huge amount about that. It’s not like he’s made a terrible shot. I think it was fantastic bowling.”

Rohit Sharma also registered the record for most ducks in IPL history alongside Dinesh Karthik (16).
