So far whatever is happening with MI, it is not going the way we want to. But I think we will turn things around like we have done it in the past. Hopefully, we can turn it around this time, the Rohit said on Monday at a book release function.

He was referring to the 2015 season when MI lost five out of their first six matches before making a stunning late charge to their second IPL title.

MI started off their campaign this season too in a dismal manner by losing the opening three games before arresting the slide with a victory over RCB.

However a three-wicket loss in their fifth and previous game has made things a bit more difficult for the three-time winners in their quest to make it to the play-offs.
