Ahmedabad, May 18, 2014

Ahead of their match against stronger looking team of Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians‘ all-rounder Corey Anderson is hopeful of winning the match and turning things around.

“We know that Royals have done well, particularly their bowlers like Pravin Tambe. But, we will do our best to counter their attack,” Anderson said today while addressing media after their practice session at Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, where MI will play against Royals tomorrow.”

The all-rounder from New Zealand is satisfied with the bowling line-up of Mumbai.

“Our bowling is going good. For batting, one good inning is enough to change the game. We look forward towards putting up a good score,” said Anderson.

Mumbai Indians have won just 3 out of 10 matches, putting them 7th in points tally. While Rajasthan now stands 3rd after winning 7 out of 11 matches in this season of the IPL.

Along with Mumbai, players of RR too practised at the stadium ahead for their match on Monday. Though Rajasthan is almost sure to be in the Play-offs, the team is in no mood to take it easy.

“Though we are having a comfortable position, we just want to get through by winning this match too. We are not going to do any experiments as far as selection of players goes,” Royals seamer Kane Richardson told reporters.

The Australian seamer also thanked RR mentor Rahul Dravid for being there all the time.

“He is one of the nicest person I have ever met. Thanks to his efforts, our team is doing consistently good. He is a great help for less experienced local players like Sanju Samson and Pravin Tambe,” said Richardson.
