A dominant Mumbai Indians will be up against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Sunday. Mumbai are currently at the second spot in the points table and will be pumped up heading into this contest after their 46-run win over defending champions Chennai Super Kings.

Before the three-time champions took to the field against KKR, MI skipper Rohit Sharma expressed his thoughts about the team's approach for the upcoming game, how the team is clicking at the right time and his feelings about playing at the Eden Gardens.

''We don't mind playing back-to-back games because sometimes it can get you into that momentum as well. Of course, that helps when you win games and you play a game on one day's time", said Rohit.

The Indian vice-captain also added that not just one individual but the entire unit is helping them in winning the games.

"One good thing that is happening with our team right now is that it is not just the individuals winning us games, but the entire unit is coming together as a group and performing when it is required. As a team, we always wanted to be tactically strong and at any time, if we want to swap or change the players, the guys are ready to do it because I totally believe that you need to be very flexible in terms of the opposition that you play and the conditions that you play."

Rohit, who has captained Mumbai to three IPL titles, was very excited to play at the Eden Gardens.

"It is Eden Gardens and it is a beautiful ground. Personally, I have enjoyed my time out there and as a team also we have enjoyed our time there. We have won two IPL titles there, so it is a good happy hunting ground for us." 

At the same time, Rohit was also happy that Mumbai Indians were clicking at the right time.

"It is quite pleasing to see where we are right now as a team. So going forward only positive things from here on", he added.
