Mahela Jayawardene feels happy with easy win



Kochi captain Mahela Jayawardene feels his team need to be more consistent if they want to become a real force in the Indian Premier League.

The Tuskers Kerala have won six of their 13 games this season with the latest victory coming courtesy an eight-wicket thrashing of the Rajasthan Royals in Indore on Sunday.

Although he is delighted that they easily dispatched of the Royals after chasing down 98 in 7.2 overs, Jayawardene feels they need to be more consistent.

"Easy win, so happy with that," he is quoted by the Press Trust of India. "The other day we couldn't defend 180, today we executed our plans."


He added: "We need to try and be more consistent, that's a key word in Twenty20 cricket."

Jayawardene has played his final match for Kochi this season and is set to leave for England where he will join up with his Sri Lanka team-mates.

The 33-year-old, though, urged his IPL outfit to end their campaign in style with a victory against the Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Wednesday.

"We want to finish off the season on a high, with 14 points, and we'd like to say we had a good season."

Sunday's loss is the Rajasthan Royals' fourth in a row and also dashed their slim hopes of qualifying for the play-offs.

Captain Shane Warne lamented another disappointing display with the bat.

"Probably one of those nights when you were 100-120 short," the Australian said.

"We can only try as much as we can. Disappointing for the fans. Such a great crowd and buzz here, I'm still proud of our guys. To lose four games in a row, we've just made too many mistakes."
