Mumbai: Refusing to put the blame only on the openers for the team's batting woes in the ongoing Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians coach Robin Singh on Saturday said that every batsman must take responsibility for the failure.
In the absence of Sachin Tendulkar, after the opening game against defending champions Chennai Super Kings on April 4, Mumbai Indians have used South Africa's Richard Levi at one end to open the innings with different partners -- T Suman, Ambati Rayudu and Davy Jacobs -- but all these make-shift combination have misfired.
"It's not just about the openers. We have 20 overs to bat and we have a deep batting line up. As openers we will play shot, that's the format of the game, first six overs we will try to maximise," said Robin Singh on the eve of the match.
