"We were looking forward to having a good start. But it is one of those things that happens. But it is also that you can get into a better position when you have this kind of an experience in the first game," the former India stumper told reporters after the team's practice session today.
     
"It is not the end of the world because it is a long season (ahead). And I think what I can see with the boys now is that they realize (what has happened). (From) the impression that they give, their body language, I think that they will definitely come back," said Pandit.
      
The former Mumbai wicket keeper said he had discussed what went wrong against Andhra, to whom they conceded first innings points in their group opener at Vizianagaram, during the practice session.
    
"There were key points that I had to discuss individually with them. I had spoken to them individually when the practice was on. They also have been talking to me and they also accept that there are certain things that we could have done much better. I am sure that they realise it and will comeback with a different approach. Ultimately it is Mumbai culture, that we don’t give up,” said Pandit.

Reminded of the poor start of Mumbai last season too when he was not its coach, Pandit said it was in the past but lessons learnt should be kept in mind.
