    I won’t play tomorrow: Gilchrist

    KXIP captain-coach not fully fit ahead of home tie against DC

    By IPL Staff
    Mohali 13 May 2012
    The Kings XI Punjab will take on the Deccan Chargers in their last match at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium tomorrow.
    Ahead of the match, Adam Gilchrist addressed the media here and spoke about the game tomorrow. The veteran cricketer also said that he will be unavailable to play the game.

    Excerpts from his media interaction:

    On the match tomorrow

    It is a big tie [...]. It is nice to be in contention [for a place in the playoffs] still. All the team are aware how important each game [is].

    On the level of intensity in tomorrow’s game

    I think we are playing with that [high] intensity and intention [to win] throughout the tournament because if you let one [game] slip early, you can’t guarantee that you will [be able to] make it up later. [We have been] trying to put in that extra effort all the way through and try to win the hard effort award.

    On whether he is playing tomorrow against DC

    No. I am not playing tomorrow unfortunately. I was hoping to be alright, but that is not the case, so I will be missing the game tomorrow.

    On whether their record at home is a concern

    I think I am reasonably accurate in saying that a number of teams have had a similar record [as us] in games home and away. I think it’s more the nature of Twenty20 and the timeline between the success and loss. So I don’t harbor any doubts of us playing [well] here. It’s a case of a fresh start, at the start of the game no matter what the venue is. I certainly don’t see any issue with the wicket in relation to our team balance.
    With the sort of cricket that we play, it is not a problem. Having played well enough in a couple of the home games that we played, we played well enough to win one and probably played well enough to win another one. A little ten minute slip at the end cost us, so nothing to worry about.
