Mumbai: Ever since Sachin Tendulkar was ruled out due to a finger injury in the Indian Premier League (IPL) opener, Mumbai have struggled to find a solid opening pair. Not only have they tried three different openers (Ambati Rayudu, T Suman and Davy Jacobs) alongside Richard Levi, the openers have provided a double figure start only once in the last four matches.
"We have to put some runs in the first six overs. If we get a good start, then any team can get 160-170. This is a wicket (at Wankhede) where if you get a good start, you can put runs on the board. It didn't happen to us and we have to look at the options," said Harbhajan after their seven-wicket loss to Delhi Daredevils at Wankhede Stadium on Monday.
MI were bundled out for 92 (their lowest total in IPL 5). Delhi Daredevils then chased down the paltry score with 31 balls to spare. Harbhajan is also worried about Levi, who was bowled by man of the match Shahbaz Nadeem for one.
