Rohit confident ahead of tie against RR

Jaipur, May 20: Mumbai Indians batsman Rohit Sharma said on Saturday said that they are ready to blow Rajasthan Royals, who are already out of this season's IPL play-offs.

Though Rohit and Mumbai are aware that Rahul Dravid and Co have crashed out of IPL 5, they are not willing to take the Royals lightly.

"We have to go all-out. It doesn’t matter where Rajasthan is placed at the moment. We know they are out of the tournament but still, we will have to play a game of cricket.

"We are ready for them and we have to do whatever we can to win, it is an important game for us to win."

"I know they would look to finish on a high note. But we can't take them lightly thinking that they are out of contention and they will play some loose cricket. We would be peaking at the right time and that would help us in the playoffs," said Rohit.

Talking about his own form this season, Rohit said he is satisfied with his performance and would like to continue his consistent form in the play-offs.

"I am very happy with whatever I have been doing. When you are in form, you need to make sure you get the team into good position. I am just trying to do that. Tomorrow (Sunday) again I have got an opportunity to go there and perform. Hopefully, I will try and emulate what I have been doing in the last 15 games," he said.

Mumbai's icon Sachin Tendulkar is yet to score a big knock this season with only 1 half-century in 10 matches. "It will come, he has already played a beautiful innings against Chennai Super Kings," Sharma said.

"He has got so many runs over the years, I don't think he needs to be in form or something like that. He has already been batting well. It is just a matter of another good innings", he added.

Delhi Daredevils win over Kings XI Punjab secured Mumbai's place into the last-four. Even if Mumbai lose today's clash against Royals they will have 18 points, which is enough to seal the fourth spot in the points table.
