Ishant not the only problem for us: Amre

Mumbai:

Facing an out-of-form Ishant Sharma will not be much of a problem for Mumbai when they take on Delhi in their Ranji Trophy Super League semifinal, host team's coach Praveen Amre said on Friday.

"For us it is a knockout game. We know he (Ishant) isn't the only problem. It isn't only about Ishant, they have bowlers like Sangwan as well. We are not rating anyone high or low," Amre said.

"Everyone is capable of winning the match for them. For us he is a bolwer and we have to tackle him," he said.

The Delhi bowler will represent his home team in the Ranji Trophy semi-finals as he has been dropped from the Indian team touring Bangladesh.

Amre said playing well throughout the four days of the match will be the key for his team.

"Delhi too would like to come hard at us. The team that does well in the the four days prevails. Every session is important. And we are prepared to do well in every session," he said.

Commenting on the journey of his team through to the semis, Amre said, "this year it was not an easy journey like last year when everything fell into place. But this year, we had to work hard in every field be it bowling, batting or fielding. But the team performed as an unit."

On the form of off-spinner Ramesh Powar, who took four wickets against Haryana in the quarter-finals, Amre said, "We want him to be in form and if it's a typical CCI wicket it would be very good for us as he can run through sides."
