Rohit Sharma is eyeing to make his comeback Kolkata Knight in the Indian Premier League in Dubai on Thursday.
Mumbai lost their previous clash vs Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs in their first match of UAE-leg of IPL 2021.
KKR on the other hand defeated Royal Challnegers Bangalore in their opening game of the second-leg by nine wickets.
“It’s important that we turn up and do the job!” Rohit said in a video posted on MI’s Twitter handle.
“I honestly don’t believe in past records, T20 is a game on that particular day. What happens it’s a game of that you have to be best on that day. They are a good opposition (Kolkata Knight Riders) and they play cricket very well as a team, and they will obviously be coming off from some confidence after their last win so it’s not going to be cakewalk for us.”
“I know that we had a very handy record against them, but it’s important that we turn up really well on that particular day, and do the job. When you are chasing a score like 157 you need to build those small partnerships, and make sure you keep yourself in the game as long as possible.”
Commenting on the impressive show by Adam Milne in his first game, the Rohit said: “Adam Milne, especially is coming from a very good tournament in UK. He is a good bowler, bowls really fast and it’s all about, you know, getting that confidence and he got that confidence in the first game.”
“So I just hope that he builds on it. We just have to come back and come back really strong and tick those small boxes, and I think if you look at the potential in this squad. We have got all bases covered,” he added.
