Desperate to break the losing streak, Mumbai Indians pacer Jaydev Unadkat on Wednesday said the bowlers will have to do well as a unit in the next match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Mumbai Indians have lost six matches in a row and are currently at the last position in the points table. Their bowlers, led by Jasprit Bumrah, have disappointed. Unadkat, Basil Thampi and Murugan Ashwin have all proved costly.
Unadkat said before the match against CSK, ‘Everyone needs to try together and we have to focus on that. We will do better by taking lessons from our mistakes. “Some of our bowlers have bowled some good overs, but as a unit, we didn’t do well. We’ve talked about how to play well as a unit. There is nothing new about the death overs or the powerplay, just a good performance as a unit.
Mumbai Indians will now have to win the remaining eight matches to stay in the race for the playoffs but Unadkat said he is not looking that far ahead. He said, ‘There is no need to think so far ahead. We have to focus on match-by-match to fine-tune our performance. Once that happens everything will be fine. Right now it is important to open the account with one win and two points.
