IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians’ strategy against KXIP, Shane Bond reveals

Abu Dhabi: Mumbai Indians (MI) bowling coach Shane Bond said that his team would be targeted by Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) captain Lokesh Rahul (KL Rahul) in the next Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) match. Punjab openers Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have performed well in the current IPL.

Bond understood the importance of stopping both these openers in the match between Mumbai and Punjab and said that wicket-taking in the beginning would be crucial for the success of the defending champions team.

The former New Zealand fast bowler said, ‘Lokesh Rahul has scored against us in the last few matches and he is a great player. We are having a meeting of bowlers in the afternoon, in which we will talk about our plan against the players who are playing well for their rivals. Lokesh Rahul is the best player who runs all around the field.

He said, ‘We also know that Rahul usually takes time in the middle overs, so this might be a good opportunity to put pressure on him and the batsmen playing with him. We will not let him score runs in an area in which he is very strong. He scores a lot on extra cover and also on fine leg. We will make a special plan to get him out ‘.

Bond said that the bowling unit of Mumbai Indians has the ability to demolish the batting department of Kings XI Punjab. He said, ‘We have a great bowling unit, we just have to put pressure on them. But it has to be kept in mind that two of his main batsmen have so far shown a great game.

Bond said, “If we put some pressure and get these players out early and put a little more pressure in the middle order in the beginning, then we can stop them from scoring more runs.
