Although Sachin and Lara are in their declining years, they still have the confidence to bat on such a pitch. West Indies legend Lara was talking to the media after the match. At this time he said, “The pitch is very flat. I was discussing with Sachin. We thought, we can also make a comeback on such a pitch. As we have seen, the team that wins the toss chooses to bowl first most of the time. Because you don’t know how big the opposition will score on such pitches.”
According to Lara, Sunrisers Hyderabad already knew that it would not be easy to beat Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium. The same happened in the match. The Hyderabad bowlers could not stop the Mumbai batsmen at the set score. Lara said, “Today they (Mumbai Indians) scored a hearty run against us. We also knew that a lot of runs would be scored on this pitch. He has scored 200 runs here (Wankhede) many times. Our players could not control the match while bowling.”
