"We are still No. 3 on the points table," the skipper reminded reporters after Kolkata suffered a last-ball loss to Team Chennai at Eden Gardens on Monday night.
"We have two more games and I am hopeful of turning it around."
Kolkata and Chennai both have 17 points, just one less than Delhi and Mumbai. Gambhir's men, though, have two matches left, while Chennai have just one more to play.
Gambhir was not too worried by the fact that as many as seven teams still have a chance of progressing to the last-four stage. "But that has always been the case," he said.
