Wankhede not a T20 wicket: Harbhajan

Mumbai, Apr 30: Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh was very critical about the Wankhede pitch as he said 'it was not a proper Twenty 20 wicket' after his team's five wicket win over Deccan Chargers on Sunday.

"A different wicket from what we have played at the Wankhede. Not good for T20 cricket. I came today and saw the pitch and said wow what to expect here, we never know what to expect from this track ever," Harbhajan said after the match

"From next time, I think we have to ensure that we know what kind of wicket we are going to play," he added.

Despite Mumbai's win, Harbhajan said the team batted poorly while he was pleased with the bowling performance.

"We did not play any better than Deccan, both teams batted poorly. Of course, our bowlers did a superb job. Rohit batted well and Ambati Rayudu was there to take us home."

While Chargers' captain Cameron White said the team did not capitalise after winning the toss bit gave credit to bowlers as they tried to defend a small total.

"It was an important toss but we did not play too well. Our bowlers tried their best but the total was too small," he said.

White was pleased with Dale Steyn's impressive spell of 2/10 gave Chargers an opportunity to make a match out of it though they defended a small total.

"He (Steyn) bowled fantastic and we made a match out of it. One thing you don't want to do is to have Steyn's overs remaining with the game finished," White said.
