Rohit Sharma: It gives us a lot of confidence. The trend is changing now, I believe the teams batting second will win more matches in the second half of the tournament. It's always a challenge when you've won 4 out of 4. How you turn up on the day matters a lot and we turned up well. I believe a lot in match-ups, it has given us success as a team. Which bowler I can bowl to certain batsmen and things like that. What you do on the field is also very instinctive. I still bowled Krunal and Rahul to Andre Russell. I thought the ball was turning a little and I took my chances there. But Bumrah has been special. I enjoy batting with him. He's very straightforward on what he wants to do. I take a back seat as he wants to take on the bowlers from the start. I take my time and have a role to play in the squad. It's important for us to we stay on the money. You can't get complacent. We know this tournament is very funny. We've seen how teams have lost a few games. The guys are hungry, they've not played for six months and want to express themselves.

Eoin Morgan:

We weren’t in the race at all today, being four or five down. Managed to get a score on the board but when Mumbai come out and play like that, it's difficult to to stop. Guys fought hard but just not enough runs on the board.

No. 4, 5 and 6 we have lot of experience. Given the match ups in different games, we're trying our best hand. Don’t think it would have made much difference today.

Moving forward we have to try to make the most of our batting talent according to the opposition.

PREVIEW:Reigning champions Mumbai Indians (MI) are in red hot form and the Rohit Sharma-led side will aim to consolidate their position on the Indian Premier League (IPL) points table when they clash with an inconsistent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in their return fixture on Friday. The last time the two sides met in the current season, MI had thrashed KKR by 49 runs at the same venue, the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. With their consistent performances, MI have emerged as one of the favorites of this year's title. The entire team has clicked as a unit, with both the bowlers and batsmen stepping up whenever the situation demanded. While they have in-form top-order comprising skipper Rohit and opener Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan have provided stability to their side in the middle-order. The MI batters are at their peak and can rip apart the best of bowling attacks.

With the likes of Krunal Pandya, Keiron Pollard and Hardik Pandya, MI have some of the most destructive guns in their lower middle-order. Meanwhile, MI bowling department, too, looks quite settled, with lethal pacers like Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah and James Pattinson being part of their arsenal. The trio has come with breakthroughs at crucial points and would look to continue with it. The spin workload will once again be shared by Rahul Chahar and Krunal. On the other hand, KKR have plenty of issues in their backyard. Their major concern is the inconsistency of the players, especially their batsmen.

They do have Andre Russell in their middle-order. However, the Caribbean all-rounder hasn't been up to the expectations, managing merely 71 runs from seven games. KKR, undoubtedly, possess some of the fine batsmen of the game, comprising opener Shubman Gill, Eoin Morgan, Nitish Rana, and skipper Dinesh Karthik. But they all have let their team down with inconsistent performance. KKR's bowling has, however, performed better than the batters. Prasidh Krishna, Pat Cummins, Varun Chakravarthy, and K Nagarkoti have been average with the ball and needs to up the ante as the league will head towards the business end. While KKR will aim to avenge their last defeat, MI would be in no mood to spare any of their opponents in order to be at the pole position at the end of the league stage
