A video of Adam Gilchrist, skipper of Kings XI Punjab(KXIP) said to reporters before the match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) that the visitors are a great bunch of relaxed players.

 

Describing Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) as tough and dangerous opponents, Gilchrist said no team in the Indian Premier League was unbeatable.

 

The Australian wicket keeper-batsman also expressed satisfaction over his team's performance. “Our record is very similar to that of a lot of teams. Some have one and two, two-one or two-two win-loss record. We are really pleased with the way we are doing.”

 

Gilchrist hoped that batsman Paul Valthaty will regain his form soon. The dasher last year had won the best individual performance award for his knock of 120 not out off 63 while chasing a score of 189 runs against Chennai Super Kings.

 

“Everyone has been in these situations in their career. We are just trying to keep backing him. We are just trying to encourage him, to keep relaxed. He is just got to trust in his abilities so that he does not lose his talent,” said he.

 

Gilchrist was also all praise for Punjab pacer Harmeet Singh.
