Former New Zealand captain John Wright, who had a successful run as coach of the Indian team wants to do the same with Mumbai Indians.
Wright, the new coach of MI is confident of an improved show by his team against CSK here on Saturday. He does not read too much into the loss against Bangalore and believes that his team is a talented bunch of youngsters who can perform well.
“It was a kind of tidal effect, that’s what T20 cricket is about. We are looking at a combination that would be a winning outfit. It’s great to win, winning is far more enjoyable,” said Wright. “We have very talented players. It’s a question of finding a combination. Jasprit has some pace and an interesting action. He offers a little bit of variation for us. He (Jasprit) had an interesting start in front of a big crowd last night,” added Wright.
He also stressed that the new MI captain Ricky Ponting was eager to build the MI outfit into a fighting one. “Yes, he (Ponting) has strong leadership qualities. We are working to be a strong unit,” said Wright. On the match against CSK, he said: “I hope it will be a good match. The Super Kings are a settled unit. They would enjoy the home advantage.”
