Mumbai may have won the Ranji Trophy for the record 39 times, but the powerhouse of Indian cricket has not been their dominating self in the limited over version.
Coach Pravin Amre and his wards are aware of this blip on their list of achievements and are determined to set the record straight this time around. Mumbai have won their first two encounters in the zonal one-day tournament with bonus points and a win in the remaining two games could see them through to knock out stage of the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Despite a depleted squad, Amre said they would not like to settle for anything less than an all win record here. “Last year we won just two games and won the zonals. We know we are in the driver’s seat, but we have to guard against complacency,” he said. “We have been speaking about it in the team meetings and have taken some steps to address the problem,” said the former international. “You can notice from the two games that every player is giving more than hundred per cent on the field.”
