‘Mumbai Indians will bounce back’

Kolkata : Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma asserted that his side would bounce back from the defeat in the IPL campaign opener and pick up steam as the tournament progresses. Mumbai Indians had a typical slow start to their title defence in season nine, going down to Pune Supergiants by nine wickets.

“It was disappointing. But things like this can happen. What has happened has happened and we don’t want to carry any baggage. We have gone back to the drawing board and decided what we can’t afford as a team. We have rectified our mistakes. Hopefully we have a better game here,” Rohit said on the eve of their match against Kolkata Knight Riders.

“We are a team that knows what we to do to win the trophy and win games. This is professional unit and you don’t need to motivate the team. Everyone knows what is expected. You can’t get demotivated. You have to come back stronger. That is the only way going forward,” he added.
