Mumbai Indians continued their great run in IPL 10 winning their sixth consecutive match on Saturday. Aussie pacer Mitchell McClenaghan however says the time has not come yet to be thinking of the play-offs.
Mumbai Indians are in a great position to reach the play-offs. They beat Delhi Daredevils by 14 runs victory over on Saturday at the Wankhede, McClenaghan grabbed three wickets.
"It's a long way to go (to reach play-offs). We have got a very liberal management and a very liberal team. So, fresh start every time, planning process is injected at the same time. Same routine. It's important that we do not get too high or two low, just stay consistent because there is ups and downs in T20 cricket," the bowler was quoted as saying at the post-match conference.
Praising the bowlers, McClenaghan added, "Obviously, you have to take wickets upfront. The message was very clear, just do our things. When you think of a sub-par score on a pretty good wicket, the team insists you to go out and be too aggressive with the ball and make things happen from the outset. We worked very hard with Bondy (Shane Bond, bowling coach), our analyst, (coach) Mahela (Jayawardene) to what plans in place and we stuck to our plans. We bowled with control, but still with a nice presence," McClenaghan.
Mumbai defended 142 against Delhi on Saturday.
