Mumbai: The Wankhede pitch was criticised by Mumbai Indians captain Harbhajan Singh in their last match and on Saturday batsman Rohit Sharma said his side were preparing for all eventualities as they don't know how the track would play on Sunday in their IPL match against Chennai Super Kings.
"We don't know how the wicket will play. The last time we played here the wicket was seaming around and bouncing and we thought that we were playing in Australia on a Perth wicket," said Rohit, referring to the game on April 29 against Deccan Chargers.
The Chargers were shot out for a lowly 100 in 18.4 overs and then Mumbai struggled initially against the fiery pace bowling spell of Dale Steyn before romping home quite comfortably. Mumbai captain Harbhajan said after the match that the pitch was "not a proper Twenty20 wicket".
