Need to maintain intensity: Gambhir
Friday 30 September 2011

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir feels that his team needs to play with the same intensity in order to qualify for the CLT20 semi-finals.

"We have a lot of talent in the dressing room and today we did well. We have one game in group stages left and we have to maintain the same intensity level. Today Brett and Kallis bowled tremendously in the first six overs. But we have concerns regarding our bowling at the death and that needs to be addressed," Gambhir said.

Man of the match Jacques Kallis said that it was time that seniors put their hands up after two poor outings.

"We played some poor cricket in the last two games, and we needed the senior players to put up a big performance today, which we did. Brad got us off to a quick start, and after that we just had to stay there and see it through."

He was all praise for his skipper.

"Gambhir is a magnificent player. We missed him when he was injured, but it is great to have him back."

The South African all-rounder still feels that they have a realistic chance of making it to the top four.

"There's always hope that we can sneak him. We should try and beat the Warriors first, and get the run-rate up and then sit around and wait for a bit." he revealed.
