Rohit Sharma, captain for the Mumbai Indians, is optimistic about their chances against the Chennai Super Kings on Friday, despite a rocky start to their campaign.

Mumbai has had consecutive defeats from their last three fixtures against Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab, and Kolkata Knight Riders.

The skipper has said that the upcoming game would be critical for them (Mumbai Indians) and they would have to play well against them. Sharma said that they were only going to take positives from the three losses that have been dealt to them and there was nothing to be done but to learn their lessons and move on.

He did mention that there were some parts of the squad that failed to fire at the critical time, resulting in an unsatisfactory performance, which may have lead to their defeat. Those were the areas they needed to focus on, he said.

Against the Rajasthan Royals, Sharma pulled off an unusual strategy by dropping down the batting line up all the way by three spots. When asked about it later, he claimed there was no special reason for such a change, but it was only done to get the team to click.
