New Delhi: IPL 2021 is now slowly moving towards its final phase. The performance of 5-time champion Mumbai Indians in this tournament has been very poor. This team is now struggling to reach the playoffs. Meanwhile, the bowling coach of Mumbai has exposed some of the mistakes that his team has made this year.
This season has been bad for Mumbai
Mumbai Indians’ bowling coach Shane Bond sees a positive side despite the disappointment in the five-time champions’ camp after their four-wicket loss to Delhi Capitals. In a low-scoring match on Saturday, Delhi Capitals chased down a target of 129 with five balls to spare, dealing another blow to the Rohit Sharma-led side, who are seventh on the charts with 10 points.
Coach made big mistakes
When asked whether Mumbai Indians would change their game plan before the upcoming match, Bond replied, “We have only a few weaknesses that need to be rectified. Bond said, ‘I don’t think we need to change the plan much. I don’t think plans will change much. I think our ability to run, you know, it’s not too difficult for someone to convert 30 into 60 and finish the match. If we have to keep our plans simple, especially when it is difficult to bat and score. We have some AC Jaggs which we need to improve.
Mumbai will not give up hope
Despite the arduous task of qualifying for the playoffs, Bond said the team would not give up hope. Bond said, ‘We know we are still in competition. Even though we have lost today. We are looking for an opportunity to win the next game and hopefully it will be an opportunity for us till the last game. We’re playing well, we know we’re not nearly playing our best, but we’re still in the competition, even though we’ve got five wins. A few more victories and results for us may go our way and things can change.
