“He has been of great help. Facing quality spinners in the competition is of massive help. I am playing some of the best spinners in the world. I also face quality spinners in the nets and this will definitely help me play spin bowling better in the matches to come,” Anderson said.

It hasn’t been the best of starts for MI with the team suffering their third straight defeats, at the hands of Chennai Super Kings, on Thursday night.

“It is a slow start for the team, we had a bit of a break and we expected things to change a little bit but we did not score enough runs tonight. We didn’t have a good big innings, but it is no excuse.

“We got to work harder and we got to come out fighting harder again. We just have to come out and win a couple of games and I am sure we will get going from there.

Mumbai Indians’ total of 141 was easily chased down by CSK. After failures in the first two games, Anderson managed a 31-ball 39 against CSK.

“I spent a lot more time in the nets and a lot more time with the coaches and was trying to get a grasp on playing in these conditions. It takes time for anyone to sort of get used to the conditions.

“I am trying to find out my rhythm and time in the middle which always helps. Tonight unfortunately I got out when I was just beginning to get going. On another day it might have come off and hopefully it will soon.”

Talking about Zaheer Khan’s presence in the side, Anderson, who is also a left-arm fast medium bowler, said, “I have spoken to Zak a few times and he is a master in what he does. He is so good to have in the team and him specially being a left-armer obviously helps. — Agencies
