Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar reckoned that the way Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma marshalled his troops and his field placements were outstanding in the final against Rising Pune Supergiant on Sunday. "Look at the last over. He (Rohit) had only one fielder at deep cover because he knew that Steve Smith with his back and across movement and the propensity to flick the ball to the leg-side, he had four fielders outside and just that one fielder. Just actually tells you how much preparation had gone into Mumbai Indians strategy."
