Bangalore: May 1, 2014

Senior Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh said though Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and Chennai Super Kings are sitting at top of the table, Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 is still wide open and there is chance for every team to stage a comeback.

“This is the time when teams leading would like to consolidate, teams like ours’ would like to recover the lost ground and sides like Mumbai Indians would like to change their fortunes. As far as my experience says, everything is possible in this game,” he said in an article on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) website.

The Punjab southpaw said the Bangalore outfit believe they can be return back to winning ways if they play to their potential and use home conditions to their advantage.

“We know this for a fact, that if we play to our full potential, we can be back to winning ways. Everyone in the group believes this very strongly and are aspiring to make things better. And that’s what we aim to do when we get back to Bangalore,” he said.

“Before getting back to Bangalore, we have two days to recharge our batteries and channelise our energies. Hopefully, the familiar surroundings of our home ground can make this recovery a little easier,” he added.

Yuvraj, who has had a rough time the last couple of matches, said the team need to overcome from their last three defats in the UAE leg of the tournament.

“Losing three matches in a row is definitely a setback, which we need to overcome very quickly. We had one terrible game against Rajasthan Royals and the other two games we just didn’t play the crucial moments well,” he said. Yuvraj said RCB has plenty of positives, including the right set-up and right combination of talents.

“Honestly speaking, we have plenty of them. We have the right set-up, right players, great support staff and a very sporting franchise,” he said.

“In this format, you lose and win your battles in a very short span and unlike Test cricket or One-Day cricket, you don’t have many chances to make a comeback,” the Punjab lad added.

“We started this year’s IPL on a right note with two consecutive wins. Though, by the end of the first leg of the IPL, we somehow couldn’t carry forward that initiative.”
