Dismissing suggestions that back to back defeats might affect team morale, Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir said he is hopeful of a turnaround as the team has got two more games in the league stage of the tournament.

 

However he had no regret on the losses as his side lost the match on the last ball of the game.

 

He also thanked the Kolkata fans who supported the team throughout the tournament as it was the last match of the IPL in the city of joy.

 

KKR suffered their second consecutive loss last night when defending champions Chennai Super Kings beat them by five wickets in a last-ball thriller at the Eden Gardens here.

 

“We played some very good cricket in the last two games.

 

It's not that we were beaten convincingly. It's really disheartening not to be able to finish the games, but we played both the games to the best of our ability,” the left-hander said during the post-match press conference last night.

 

“We can take a lot of positives out of it (the match).

 

With the kind of cricket we are playing, hopefully we can turn it around pretty soon,” Gambhir said..

 

Asked about their chances of progressing to the play-offs, Gambhir said: “We still have two more games and are still third in the table. The table was always such that every team had a chance.

 

“If we go and win one more we may go to the top. It's just a matter of playing each game as it comes.”
