'Hope Gayle, de Villiers do not fire'

Bangalore, May 14: Mumbai Indians coach Shaun Pollock has said that the team certainly has plans for RCB players and hopes in-form Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers do not fire against them at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Monday.

Pollock, said the team will not reveal its strategy for Monday's clash during the pre-match conference on Sunday.

"We will be in trouble if we made our strategy against RCB public. Obviously, we have a strategy against RCB which we would like to keep within the four walls of the dressing room," Pollock told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

Pollock stressed on the fact that they have plans up their sleeves against the Jamaican storm who has already claimed the orange cap with 572 runs off 12 matches.

"We obviously realise he is very important player for the hosts. He has been making runs consistently. We also don't want de Villiers to play well against us tomorrow," he said.

Aware of their inconsistent performance throughout the season, Mumbai are under pressure to retain their third spot and ensure a place in the play-offs, as RCB too needs a couple of points to qualify for the last four stage.

But Mumbai coach, Pollock feels otherwise, as he has said that this IPL being the most competitive as many teams have been beating each other.

"Lot of teams have been beating each other. We have seen last-ball finishes too. This year's IPL has been competitive," he said.
