Change is needed in the remaining matches – Mahela Jayawardene
When Mahela Jayawardene was asked about the change, he said that after talking to other coaches, we will give our comment on it. According to him, a lot of questions are being answered regarding the team’s batting. Batting remains the theme of the team.
He also agreed that the performance of the Mumbai Indians team has been quite mediocre this year and their batting has been very weak.
According to Jayawardene’s, he said that, your question is very good, we will talk to all the coaches about the upcoming match. This time our batting has not been good and we have not done that well even on good wickets.
The senior players of the team have not appeared in their rhythm. Change is needed in the team and we will definitely make changes in the coming matches.
So far we have made some changes in playing 11. Batting remains a matter of concern and we also have to test in which matches we should bat first and in which ones we should bat second.
