'We need to do small things right'

Noting that Mumbai Indians should have batted better in the first phase of the ongoing IPL T20 tournament, the team’s coach Robin Singh on Sunday said the side would like to put its best foot forward in the remaining matches.

“I think obviously we did not start very well. The first phase of the tournament we probably should have got more runs. We did not bat as we could have. Being a new side, it took a little while to sort of come together. I think the second half, in Bombay, we actually did pretty okay. The last game was a little unfortunate.

“We could have probably won that game had we done smaller things better. I did have a chat with Dhoni after the match and he said it was a pretty good score on that sort of wicket. It was a bit slow, not a typical Bombay wicket that we played on earlier in the past two games,” he told reporters here ahead of Monday’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Mumbai Indians are currently languishing at the bottom of the table having won only two of the eight matches they have played so far.

Saying that there is more consistency in the performance of the team, Singh hoped that the match would be a good one for his side.

“I think all the games are important. Not only for us, but all the teams. We don’t want to look at other teams. We got to look at ourselves and make sure that we play better cricket and do the small things right,” he said.
