Obviously they are a dangerous side, so we will have to bowl really well. If we have any strength, it's our bowling. So I expect us to bowl well," said the former Australian Test cricketer.<br /> <br /> "Mumbai are a quality side and they have played really well of late. So for us, we have to be on top of our game to beat them," he added.<br /> <br /> Conceding that their batsmen have not performed to the expectations level, Lehmann felt they seemed to have improved over the last few matches.<br /> <br /> "Our bowling hasn't been good enough, although our batting has been more impressive in the last few games. Even in <a href="/tags/Kolkata/post" target="_blank">Kolkata</a> I thought we batted okay. We thought 150 were enough, but we didn’t bowl very well.<br /> <br /> "They are always tough to beat at Kolkata, for example. I thought we batted reasonably well. It was a spinning track, but this one here is a batting track and hopefully our batsmen can play with freedom and play the strokes," Lehmann said.<br /> <br /> While MI have 10 points from eight games, Kings XI are struggling with four wins and four losses at the halfway stage of their league campaign.<br /> <br /> He also praised the <a href="/tags/Wankhede-Stadium/post" target="_blank">Wankhede Stadium</a> wicket here as a good T20 track, while insisting his team was not looking too far ahead towards the play-offs as yet.<br /> <br /> "It's a good wicket isn't it? It was good last night.<br /> <br /> Obviously it had some bounce and carry in it, a good Twenty20 wicket. "
