We need slight improvement in bowling: Vettori
Chennai: Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Daniel Vettori today said that his side would be looking for an improved bowling show against Mumbai Indians in their IPL play-off in their bid for a second final appearance in the tournament.
Vettori said his players are high on confidence despite losing to Chennai in the first play-off.
"Team is in pretty good stead. We realised small things that went wrong in last five overs. Prior to that everything went as per plans. We are looking at the game tomorrow. We probably go with same team with slight improvement in bowling," Vettori said at the match-eve press conference.
"We have delivered and our batting has been pretty good in the whole tournament and sooner or later we will do with bowling also," he said.
Asked about the team composition for tomorrow`s match against Mumbai, Vettori said, "I think I will go with the same team tomorrow. Chris (Gayle) and myself could target well in the eight overs that we will be bowling and it is hard to put too many runs. The players who have played in the last 15 games for us have performed well and probably I am to look at that.”
"We have to look at the wicket tomorrow. I played here quite some time back. The groundsman is saying that the wicket will be good to play on tomorrow. Probably the wicket for the final will turn a lot more I do not know," he said.
Vettori denied pacer Zaheer Khan has not been at his lethal best, saying that the India strike bowler has been the key player for his side.
"In the last two games Zaheer has been at his best and has been taking wickets upfront. I am really pleased with the way he has bowled," said the New Zealander.
