“He has struggled a bit, we have given him the freedom to play his natural game. I haven’t yet spoken to him today but I will have a conversation with him soon,” the Sri Lankan said.

Mumbai has lost eight games in succession and is on road to having the worst possible season throughout the entire existence of the Indian Premier League assuming things proceed along these lines. Mumbai spent a mammoth Rs 15.25 crore to get the assistance of Ishan Kishan.

In any case, in the wake of having a decent spat in the initial two matches of the competition, Kishan’s form went down, placing Mumbai in a profound opening.

Mahela Jayawardene didn’t single out Kishan for the disappointments and tended to the entire batting unit’s performance overall, expressing that there should have been a review of their play so far.

“I need to review the batters’ performance. It has been a concern so far but this is a senior group so we need to keep pushing. We want to keep the batting unit consistent as far as we can,” said Jayawardene.
