"Mumbai is a very strong team, a very settled team, they have been playing almost the same team since the last couple of years, we know their strengths, we have to bring in our A-game," felt Anil Kumble. 

KXIP will be playing its first match in Abu Dhabi this season. On this, the head coach said that it won't be easy to hit sixes and they need to quickly adapt to the new conditions. 

"We need to assess the conditions quickly and adapt. Abu Dhabi is a new venue for us, its a new ground slightly bigger, boundaries are bigger, it's not going to be easy to score sixes like how it was at Sharjah," told Kumble in an exclusive interview with Cricketnmore. 

The head coach is happy with the way his team has been playing this season. 

"I am really happy with the way over the last 3 games we have been consistent, so looking forward to that kind of an effort again in Abu Dhabi," expressed the former Leg-spinner. 

Kings XI Punjab will be up against Mumbai Indians today(1st October, Thursday) in Abu Dhabi.
