MUMBAI INDIANS skipper Rohit Sharma believes that his side is known to keep people on their toes and that the win against Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede will help them snatch tougher wins in the remainder of IPL 10.
Chasing 179, at one stage in the game, MI were trailing at 119/5. However, Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya combined a quick 41 run partnership and chased the target with a ball to spare. As reported by IANS, Sharma said that he was confident that his guys would finish it off.
"Winning the game was important. We're known for this - we keep people on their toes. I am very happy with this win. Here at Wankhede, we back our players to get the runs with the dew coming in and pitch being flat. We were hoping (Nitish) Rana and Hardik would finish it off and they did."
While Rana struck 50 of 28 balls, Hardik scored 29 off just 11 balls. Speaking about the young guns in the squad, the MI skipper reckoned that he wants them to repeat such feats in the forthcoming games.
"It's important for any team to have young players come in like that and finish the job. I hope they repeat it. There's still room for improvement. We don't want to be in the back seat. We know the things we didn't do well today and we'll go back to the drawing board before our next game."
