'We know how to beat Mumbai'

Almost assured of securing a place in the play-offs of the ongoing Indian Premier League, in-form Rajasthan Royals’ all-rounder Shane Watson says they know how to beat the Mumbai Indians in their own den.

“Well the most important thing is to keep playing good cricket. We played Mumbai Indians here at home and beat them very convincingly in the last game. So we know exactly what we have to do to beat Mumbai Indians,” Watson said.

Rajasthan, who are sitting pretty in second position, play Mumbai in their next match on Wednesday.

“We have had a bit of success in Mumbai the last few years as well in the Wankhede Stadium. It is a beautiful wicket so I am looking forward to playing there,” he said.

The Royals have maintained their unbeaten streak at home intact as they recorded a comfortable five-wicket win over table-toppers Chennai Super Kings at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium on Sunday night.

“We have had a lot of success here, lot like the first year I played here. We certainly know the conditions well and most importantly we have got a really good team at the moment. “Everyone is chipping in when we need to, so it is working out nicely,” the Australian  said. Watson praised Binny for his crucial 41 off 23 balls.

“Stuy has been amazing, both with the bat and the ball. The conditions suited him beautifully,” he said.
