Harbhajan Singh criticises Mumbai Indians batting
Wednesday 24 October 2012

Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Harbhajan Singh said the defending champions paid the price for a slow start in their 12-run loss to Sydney Sixers in a Group B match at Kingsmead.

Mumbai Indians' disastrous campaign in the tournament came to an end with their third defeat in four matches as they failed to perform as a unit in high-pressure situations, thus ending on a winless note.

"This was a kind of a game that hurt more than last few games. 137 was very much gettable, not just in 20 overs, but 18 overs. I think we batted too slow in the opening part and didn't look to carry on," said Harbhajan at the post-match presentation ceremony, reported PTI.

Openers Sachin Tendulkar and Dwayne Smith started the run chase on a cautoious note as the pair had tough time negotiating Sydney bowlers before reaching 30 in the six overs of the powerplay.
