Mumbai Remains Winless In UAE


There was a ray of hope for sure for Mumbai Indians in this match. Not when at the toss, their captain Rohit Sharma, who was also a birthday boy, said that he is sure of a turnaround in this match. The ray of hope blinked when Kieron Pollard started to blast the SRH leggie, Amit Mishra for 5 sixes. One would have then thought that at last the Mumbai Indians have arrived, but that was not the case. SRH included Ojha and Irfan Pathan not only to give strength to their weak batting line up but to give some more strength to their bowling as well. MI needed 20 runs to win when Irfan Pathan was given the ball to bowl the last over. When Pollard can get 27 runs from Mishra’s over it was highly possible to get those runs from slowish bowling by Pathan, but on the very first ball Pollard got out and MI again tasted defeat. Their poor approach to the batting is the main reason for their current poor performance. Pollard will remain Pollard, but others will have to rethink on how to go about the things in India, where the second leg of this year’s IPL is about to start, so that they can win all their remaining matches to qualify for the playoffs.
