    We need to grab opportunities: Nayar

    KXIP all-rounder hoping for team’s luck to turn around

    By Hoshedar N Gundevia
    Pune 09 April 2012
    Just two games into the competition and the Kings XI Punjab are already staring down the barrel. Back-to-back losses against the Rajasthan Royals and the Pune Warriors India have already condemned the Kings to the bottom of the table at this early stage in the season.

    They might not have registered a point yet, but hope and belief are qualities they have in abundance. KXIP all-rounder Abhisek Nayar has been around the block a few times and is looking to give the Kings their throne back. The 28-year-old hasn’t quite been able to summon his top form yet, but is keen to make for lost time in forthcoming matches.

    Nayar spoke exclusively to iplt20.com after KXIP’s 22-run loss against PWI.


    Not making most of the opportunities

    Every match has some crucial points in the game; somewhere we are not catching hold of those points and not getting a grip on the game. Today we played good cricket and bowled well till the second last over, but [we were] not so great with our batting. Hopefully, we can win few games and get the momentum going.

    Looking for home comforts 

    It’s always good to play at your home ground. We train there and we practice there. Hopefully, we can go and turn things around.
    Not about big names

    I think T20 is not about big names. It doesn’t matter how big a player is. What matters is who delivers at that point of time. Like I said, we came close to winning both the matches, but couldn’t capitalise. Today we restricted them well till the second last over but couldn’t keep things in control. It happens in cricket; team like Mumbai Indians couldn’t chase a target of 130. So it’s not about the names it’s about going there and delivering. 

    Lady luck to turn things around

    Hopefully, we can get some luck going our way and win few games and change things around.

    Enjoying the KXIP experience

    It’s a different experience. I am not playing for my home team, but I am enjoying it. The atmosphere is really good; the owners are brilliant and make sure you are comfortable. Gilly [Adam Gilchrist], Vikram [Rathore] and the lot has really helped us prepare and move forward.
