A video of Delhi Daredevils cricketer Irfan Pathan talking after their six-wicket defeat at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders in their IPL 2012 match.

 

“When Kevin was there, he was performing really well for the Daredevils in the middle-order but now some other batsman needs to put his hand up and perform at his best,” Pathan said at the post match press conference after Delhi lost by six wickets to Kolkata.

 

“We have some wonderful players in the middle order like Ross Taylor. Once he starts firing, you know he is a player to watch out for. He can hit the ball long way. We have no doubt with every match he plays, he is getting better.

 

“Kevin has done a good job for us but at the same time, it's an opportunity for others to take his place,” he added. Pathan said the loss of both the openers in quick succession and failure of the bowling unit led to team's defeat at the hands of KKR.
