Against Knight Riders ,Chargers hope for better luck

Deccan Chargers who are still looking for their first win in the current edition of the Indian Premier League, Monday exuded confidence of reversing their fortunes & hope to qualify for the play-offs.
"Of the 11 games left, they must win at least eight games to make it to top. Anything is feasible. They have had eight wins before (2009, 2010). They require a win & they will be through & walking," Chargers' fielding coach Trevor Penney said.

Penney blamed "mistakes at crucial times" for the team's dismal performance in the current edition of the match.

"We have been playing well in most of the games. It is that they are making mistakes at crucial moments which are costing us the games. They have been playing 95 percent of time well in a game, it is the five percent which they must improve," said Penney.

They also exuded confidence of doing well in their crucial match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens Tuesday. "We are not thinking about the negatives anymore. They have been practising hard & hope to do well."

The Kumar Sangakkara-led Chargers have lost all their matches they have played this year.
