With the victory on Sunday, Rohit Sharma became the first player to win five IPL titles, with his first title coming back in 2009 with the defunct Deccan Chargers.
“It’s so tough to take one out of the five. You see IPL is a very tough tournament to win. So I am not going to pick one, because all those victories, all those finals that we won. One with DC and four with MI, we’ve had exceptional seasons. I can’t really pick one because every season has its own challenge. For me, all five, I will cherish and remember, and not pick one,” he told reporters.
