Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals wicketkeeper Dishant Yagnik on Tuesday said his team will be banking heavily on its medium pacers when it take on the heavyweights Mumbai Indians in the IPL match on Wednesday.
"Undoubtedly they (MI) are a very good team. Along with Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians too are very strong. But we are confident that we can get the better of them," said Yagnik on the eve of the Royals vs Mumbai match.
"We have been banking on our medium pacers and till now they have done a good job. We hope they give us early breakthroughs and we are able to capitalise on it," he added. Asked about S Sreesanth's absence from the team's net session today, Dishant clarified it was an optional session for the medium pacers.
We hope they give us early breakthroughs and we are able to capitalise on it said Yagnik.
"It was an optional session for the medium pacers. They have done a good job and they deserve this rest. Tomorrow is a big game for them and this break might give them time to regroup and plan." Speaking about the wicket at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Yagnik said: "At all centres we have sporting wickets and here too it will help both the bowlers as well as the batsmen. Our medium pace attack has done well here and we hope it happens again."
Yagnik, who has been recovering from a groin injury, said he was hoping to be fit soon. "I am feeling better but such injuries take time. Hopefully, I will soon be fit," he said.
