“You can get knocked down but………” Mark Boucher

Mark Boucher stated that sometimes losing is important to gain some valuable lessons. Further, Mark said that the team is looking to raise the bar this season and no stone will be left unturned.

“We’ve spoken about it. Sometimes it’s not a bad thing to go through a bit of time where you maybe don’t win a lot. I think the lessons that we’ve learned are important. We’ve sat down, we’ve spoken about the lessons there, and I think that’s the most important thing. You can get knocked down but you’ve got to get up again and for me, this year is about the getting-up stage and there won’t be any complacency,”

He further stressed the importance of the Mumbai Indians fan base.

“The fan base of Mumbai Indians is very important. If we get our fans behind us, it is going to be a plus playing against any team here at our hometown city. We are really looking forward to seeing some good support”

Mark Boucher added that they are looking to rebuild Mumbai’s team and get it back to the top.

“I’m sure a lot of the guys are really looking forward to getting Mumbai Indians back to where they should be and that’s at the top of the table. We’ve got to play some good cricket, we’ve got to respect other opposition as well which we will do. But we’ve got to try and look after ourselves and make sure that everyone is pulling in the right direction to try and get us back to the top again, and that’s my job as a coach, to try and get them into that sort of space”
