RCB yet to decide on who will lead against MI: Dilshan

"We will take a call on the captain tomorrow. It will be either (regular captain, Daniel) Vettori or (Virat) Kohli. We have not taken a decision yet," said the Sri Lanka batsman on the eve of the match here today.

Dilshan felt his teammates needed to be at their best against a keyed up Mumbai Indians, who rediscovered their winning touch, having won three of their last four games, including a sensational last-ball victory over Chennai Super Kings on Sunday.

"Mumbai are a great team, one of the best teams in the competition and we have to play up to our potential," said Dilshan.

The 35-year-old Sri Lankan joined the Bangalore outfit only after the conclusion of the Test series at home against England on April 7 and has played only five (batted in just four games) matches in which he has hit two 70-plus knocks while opening the innings.

"We are playing non-stop cricket. I think we have to perform in whatever chances we get.

We have to adjust quickly to the conditions and also to the T20 format. We have to grab our chances and perform. I am happy to perform for RCB. I played four matches and am happy with my form," said Dilshan, who hit 76 not out against Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur and 71 against Deccan Chargers at Bangalore.
