Speaking to media on the eve of the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Bumrah said neither he nor his team strategised with only one or two players in mind. "When we formulate a strategy, we take into consideration every aspect," he added.

"We always believe in ourselves to come out of difficult situations. And, this is where the experience of Ricky Ponting has been so useful. Especially during strategic time-outs he tells us how to lift our body language when the going is not good," Bumrah pointed out.

"I did not have a look at the pitch but as professional cricketers we have to perform and face upfront any given challenges," the Mumbai Indians fast bowler remarked.

"We had a long and deserving break and all of are very relaxed even while trying to stay focussed on the big challenges ahead,” Bumrah said to a query. "All the bowlers are getting very useful tips from Shane Bond and it is great to have such experience to bank on," he said.
