    Fielding has let us down: Sanga

    DC skipper says his side has not done well in closing stages of games either

    By IPL Staff
    Mohali 13 May 2012
    Languishing at the bottom of the points table, the Deccan Chargers will be hoping to get a couple of wins under their belt to end the season on a positive note. DC will take on Kings XI Punjab in their last away game of IPL 2012 at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium here tomorrow.
    Speaking to the media ahead of the match, skipper Kumar Sangakkara discussed his team’s run in the tournament so far.

    Excerpts from his press conference:

    On the way the tournament has panned out for DC

    We have learnt quite a few lessons this season about our fielding and our catching, which has let us down in big moments and also about making sure [that] we are up to the mark and focused on exactly what to do in tight situations. In T20 cricket, it is not easy [to win in tight situations]. A lot of sides have lost close games, especially coming down to the last over or two, and those are the situations that really count. We have been found wanting in those situations. So tomorrow is another opportunity for us to show that if you do get to situations of strength, then we can capitalize.

    On luck not being on their side

    It’s not only about luck. If you do the right things, then you need just luck more than you would if you are not doing that well. So luck is something that the harder you work and the better you do, luck works for you. So sometimes luck can be an excuse, [but] that’s not something that we are looking to have gone wrong for us.

    On whether they would like to capitalize on KXIP not doing well in home games

    Hopefully. I think they have played some very good cricket. They are a good solid side; [they have] good all-round abilities, so we know what they are capable of [winning]. It’s never going to be an easy game with Kings [XI Punjab]. They showed us [that] when they played against us in Hyderabad as well. We will really need to be on the top of our game tomorrow.

    On giving opportunities to other players

    We will be looking at that very strongly. Lot of the young Indian players have got opportunities throughout the series. We have had them coming in and out of the side, and we are looking at giving some of the other foreign players a go as well.
