Jaipur: Mumbai Indian coach John Wright said the loss to Rajasthan Royals in the Champions League Twenty20 has come as a jolt to his IPL winner team, which now has a fair idea as to where it stands.

"We knew that it was going to be a tough match against Rajasthan Royals and they had beaten us convincingly in the IPl-6 encounter a couple of months back. It was a jolt and the ball is in our court now. We now have three tough matches and we have to do well. We know exactly where we stand," said the coach.

"Perhaps we were 20-odd runs short and we needed more wickets at the start. I feel our fielding and bowling was ok but we couldn't fix with batting. We have been doing well playing two spinners but tonight it did not work. At the end I feel a seamer could have been better," he added after the seven-wicket loss last night.
