Mohit Sharma is the leading wicket taker with the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Chennai won their fifth consecutive game in the tournament against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) but he still believes Chennai have a long way to go in the tournament.

“There is still a long way to go in the tournament. We are still in the middle part of the tournament. We have to work hard and keep up the good work.” He said in an interview with iplt20.com

Chennai played the first game of the Indian leg of the IPL and when asked whether the team had prepared differently for the games in India after United Arab Emirates (UAE), he said, “I don’t think there was much of a difference in the wickets between here and UAE. Wickets back in UAE and the pitch that we played tonight were on the slower side. We did not want to experiment much. We just wanted to work on the slower side aspect of the wicket.”

Mohit admits that Chennai bowled to their strengths and did not change their strategy even though Kolkata played with eight batsmen and did not want to throw away any loose deliveries and get casual.

“We did not look at their strengths. We only looked to bowl according to our strengths. The only thing that we had in mind was not to get causal till the last ball is bowled. And the good thing about tonight was that we never became casual throughout the game; be it the fielding or bowling or batting, we were right there.”

He believes the slower ball is one of the most effective deliveries he bowls and hopes he can use to great effect to get more wickets.

“It is definitely one of the deliveries that I use a lot. I have been bowling the slower one since a long time. The slower one has begun to prove more effective because the wickets have been on the slower side. Hopefully, it continues to get me wickets in the future as well.”
