The Mumbai Indians have made a solid start, achieving our first objective of getting some early momentum but every match is going to be crucial in this year's closely-fought tournament. So, while it is satisfying to be early tournament leaders, we know that we have to stay completely focused on every single game.
Saturday's game against Bangalore Royal Challengers is going to be particularly challenging. They've got one of the best batsmen of the tournament in Jaques Kallis at the top of the order as well as some other powerful strikers in the middle of the innings. They also have got some pretty handy bowlers and a balanced attack.
However, we are also fortunate to have a really well-balanced bowling unit. Sachin Tendulkar always has lots of options available and that is a real bonus for us. What's more, we have some genuine wicket-takers with the likes of Harbhajan Singh and Lasith Malinga, which is crucial in this format of the game.
