Speaking about the clash against RCB, Mumbai Indians’ Hardik Pandya said that the match had the potential to upset the prospects of both teams as they pursue a spot in the knockout stages of the IPL. The young pacer added that the pre-game pressure would be felt equally.
Pandya hailed RCB's flawless batting, while the team members found tough with the bowling. “RCB have looked good from the start of the season so the pressure is on us as well,” he said.
“But we know it's a crunch game and it might be the last game of the IPL for the losing team to go through to the top four. So let's see who handles the pressure better,” he added.
Hardik Pandya singled out RCB skipper Virat Kohli as a threat. “We all know how good Virat is and RCB are as a batting unit. As bowlers, we need to be at the top of our game. That's how we are going to approach it given the batting line-up they have, so that will be the plan. We need to be confident and know what we're doing,” he said.
