“My bat usually lasts long, pretty long. I would say about four to five months. But in the end, everything depends on the format I am playing. When you are playing the T20 format, you need to do a lot of hitting, a lot of innovative shots you need to practice, so there are chances that your bat might break,” Rohit said in a video posted on the official Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians.
“During the IPL and T20 format, my bat usually lasts for a month or two. Especially now that we know that the times are tough, we do not know if the courier will reach on time (or not), so I have taken (brought) around nine bats with me,” he added.

Rohit played a match-winning knock of 80 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. With the help of his knock, Mumbai registered their first win of the season. ( Scorecard)
Mumbai had suffered a five-wicket defeat in their opening match of IPL 2020 against Chennai Super Kings ( Scorecard), but the side quickly recovered to beat KKR by 49 runs.
In the 2014 edition of the IPL, Mumbai had lost all their matches that were played in the UAE and the side entered this edition looking to break the jinx.
The Rohit-led Mumbai will next lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday, September 28, at the Dubai International Stadium.
