Delhi Daredevils have lost all the four matches they have played but their coach Eric Simmons is confident that the team will arrest the losing sequence.”We cannot go lower, can we?” Simmons began in a lighter vein.

But on a more serious note, the former South African pace bowler said he was confident the team would do well from here on.

“We have been plagued by injuries. At one point of time we had seven players, who would have been in the playing eleven, on the injury list. We lost Kevin (Pietersen) and Jesse (Ryder) before it began. Then Sehwag and Ashish Nehra had injuries. But we did get over the problem and played. Somehow, it hasn’t clicked but we hope to turn it around soon,” Simmons added.

Rampaul upbeat

RCB’s Ravi Rampaul believes his team lift themselves up from their defeat in Chennai. “Yes, we lost to Chennai very unfortunately. All the same, we will get back to our winning ways,” he said.

The form of their top order augurs well for them. “Fortunately, Chris (Gayle) has been in fine form. So have AB and Virat. But there are a number of good Indian s too,” he said.
