Pollard: A game we just have to forget


Mumbai Indians allrounder Kieron Pollard says he and his team just need to forget about the thrashing they received at the hands of the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL on Sunday.

Pollard and his teammates were bowled out for a paltry 92, chasing a target of 178, as the Sunrisers walked away victorious by 85 runs as seamers Ashish Nehra and Mustafizur Rahman took three wickets apiece for the men in orange.

The Sunrisers posted score of 177 for three thanks to an unbeaten 82 from opener Shikhar Dhawan and 48 from captain David Warner.

Pollard: "To be honest, in these sort of games you can find many faults and every day when we come to play cricket we give our 100 %. Today's game we don't want to pinpoint anything, we actually just want to forget.
"We'll look at our performances and forget about it as this is the second half of the tournament, we want guys to be confident, not with their heads down now. We don't need people to play the blame game at this point of time.

"We need all hands on deck to get through the tournament. It's one of those things personally we need to forget.

"We will sit down and look over the performances, look how the wicket behaved, see where we need to improve but in our next game we have a good batting track in Bangalore.

"So we will not look into it at the moment, after couple of game next we will see what needs to be done."
