You get up next morning to conquer those sorts of mishaps: Mumbai head coach Mark Boucher on Arjun Tendulkar’s 31-run over vs Punjab
Mumbai: Arjun Tendulkar felt the heat of bowling in Indian Premier League as the left-arm pacer conceded 48 off 3 overs, including 31 runs in the 16th over.
While many criticised the young pacer for his miserable show in just 3rd outings, Mumbai Indians head coach Mark Boucher feels that junior Tendulkar will get up next morning with the feeling t conquer those sorts of mishap.
While addressing the media in post-match press conference, Mark said that Arjun Tendulkar will live and learn from it.
“I wouldn’t say early days, but it is midway through the IPL and hopefully, he can come back stronger. Its how you get up the next morning to conquer those sorts of mishaps that you have and with the full support of not only the support staff but the team, one can try and get over this as quickly as possible and get back on the horse,” he said.
When asked if Rohit should have asked Piyush Chawala to bowl the 16th over, MI head coach said that Rohit Sharma is a very experienced cricket and probably felt at that particular stage.
“He probably felt that there was a bit of a matchup at the stage of the game. That’s a decision that he made out there,” Boucher added.
After suffering a 13-run defeat against Punjab Kings at Wankhede stadium, MI will clash with Gujarat Titans on April 25.
