Need to keep the momentum going: Sandeep Sharma

MOHALI: The much-needed win over Delhi Daredevils last night kept their hopes alive in the ongoing Indian Premier League, and strugglers Kings XI Punjab pacer Sandeep Sharma said they now need to keep the momentum going to remain in contention for a top four spot.
Despite the nine-run win over Daredevils yesterday, Kings XI are languishing at the bottom of the eight-team standings with just six points from nine games.
And from here on, Kings XI will need to produce consistent performances in the remainder of the league games to keep the team in the hunt. The Murali Vijay-led side will next play Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore here tomorrow.
“T20 is all about momentum, when you have that you keep winning on a trot. We played good cricket in Kolkata. Prior to that we defeated Gujarat. I feel that now the momentum is back with us and our combination is right, our batsmen are making runs,” Sandeep said at the post-match press conference last night.
“We have played good cricket. Some matches were close, but we ended up on the losing side.
“I feel we have found the right combination. Captain (Murali Vijay) knows how to use his bowlers and batting has also clicked now. (Glenn) Maxwell and (David) Miller were not in their prime form (at the start of the tournament) but now they are also making runs. So that is a positive sign,” he added. (AGENCIES)
