Mumbai: Blaming the batsmen for surrendering meekly to Kolkata Knight Riders' varied bowling attack in their IPL match, Mumbai Indians coach Robin Singh said that terming the team's batting as "extremely poor" is an understatement on this Wankhede wicket.
Chasing a modest 141, the Mumbai outfit lost wickets at regular intervals to be shot out for 108 in 19.1 overs to go down to the Knight Riders by 32 runs last night, their second lowest total of the season after the paltry 92 made against Delhi Daredevils at this venue.
"The batting has been extremely poor. That's an understatement on a wicket like this. I think we should have scored the runs. We did not show any intent at the end of first six overs," said Robin Singh after his team's fifth defeat in eight home games at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
