Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma was dejected after his team's humiliating 10-wicket defeat against David Warner's Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last league match of the Indian Premier League 2020 in Sharjah on Tuesday.

Nothing went in MI's favour as they first got restricted to a below-par total of 148 for 9 in 20 overs and then couldn't pick up a single wicket as SRH rode on David Warner (85 not out) and Wriddhiman Saha's (58 not out) unbeaten opening partnership to gun down the total in 17.1 overs.

Rohit Sharma believes this was probably the worst performance of the season for Mumbai Indians and said that this was not the day they would want to remember.

"Not the day we want to remember. probably the worst performance of the season for us. We wanted to try a few things but unfortunately, it didn't go our way. Losing wickets at the top doesn't help," Rohit Sharma said in the post-match presentation ceremony.

"We knew the dew was playing a big part, and we wanted to take the toss out of consideration. I am happy to be back in the park. Looking forward to a few more games here and see how it goes.

"The hamstring is absolutely fine. Two ways to look at the dew. We play at Wankhede, which always has dew. So we don't want to be demotivated when we lose the toss. We didn't have enough runs on the board, which didn't put any pressure on us.

"If you take wickets in the Powerplay, even if there is dew, it can put pressure on them. It is a funny format. You keep doing well. I know you want to remember those two wins against DC but you have to stay in the present and keep doing the small things and keep ticking the boxes. You want to leave tonight behind you as quickly as possible. We will get back to the drawing board tomorrow," Rohit added.

Defending champions Mumbai Indians who topped the points table will lock horns with Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 for a place in the final on Thursday in Dubai International Stadium.
