Even after losing seven of their nine games, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) skipper, George Bailey expects his team, which is languishing at the bottom, to make the playoffs as there are still few matches to play catch-up with other sides. “There is still plenty to play for and we hope to still make it,” he said. Unable to get the team’s combination right in this season, Bailey is taking inspiration from Delhi Daredevils show last year, who failed to get going but are a much improved side this year, reports PTI.

“We are disappointed. But we have the team to turn it around. This is a unique competition. You can chose your teams and then go about it. We have not got the right combination. It can happen to any team. Look at Delhi, they did not do well last season but this year they have done better. There is still plenty to play for and we hope to still make it.”
