April 6 (CRICKETNMORE) - Defending Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians cannot be termed favourites but as equals in the 11th edition of the tournament according to coach Mahela Jayawardene.
“The combination of many teams have changed after the auction. Franchises like Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI all have new players and a different look. We have to start from the scratch again and be better than others to win,” said Jayawardene.
“We are defending champions but I do not see us as favourites, rather as equals to all the other teams this season.”
