Tanush Kotian: Mumbai's Lower-Order Savior

Mumbai's lower-order batters have been instrumental in the team's success this season, despite the top-order's struggles. Tanush Kotian, a 25-year-old all-rounder, has been a key contributor, bailing out the 41-time champions on several occasions.

In the semifinals against Tamil Nadu, Kotian's unbeaten 89 rescued Mumbai from a precarious position of 211 for eight. His chanceless knock propelled the team to a comfortable victory.

Kotian's performance is a testament to his hard work and dedication. He has set specific targets for himself, aiming to score 500 runs and take 30 wickets this season. With one game remaining, he has already amassed 481 runs and 22 wickets.

Kotian credits the team's deep batting order for their success. Even when the top order fails, the lower order has consistently stepped up to contribute valuable runs.

"We have a deep batting order," Kotian said. "Even when our team was 100 for 5, we reached 400 or 450 because the lower order had made runs. We have the confidence that we can bat session by session and put up as many runs as possible."

The presence of Shardul Thakur at number eight further bolsters Mumbai's batting depth. Thakur's experience and ability to score quick runs provide the team with a sense of security.

Kotian's contributions have been crucial for Mumbai's success this season. His ability to bat down the order and deliver under pressure has been a major asset for the team. As Mumbai prepares for the final game of the season, Kotian will be looking to continue his impressive form and help the team secure another title.
