The stakes are high for 39-time champions Mumbai and two-time winners Tamil Nadu as they clash in the semi-final of the Ranji Trophy Elite Division at the Wankhede Stadium today.
However, Tamil Nadu skipper Laxmipathy Balaji insisted on taking it as just another game. "It is just another game for us. It is a process we are following.
"We have been taking positives from all our outings. I guess consistency will be the key in this clash," said India pacer Balaji on the eve of the match.
Though Mumbai hold a better win-loss record against Tamil Nadu, in the last two decades, the south team has troubled the champion outfit.
On two occasions, in 2009-10 and 2010-11, Tamil Nadu managed to take the honours. "It has always been a very good contest. Both teams have a lot of talent.
It has always been a tough competition between the two teams. We have a good batting line-up. They all know their responsibilities," said Balaji.
