No end to the team’s misery in sight, Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Brendon McCullum concedes the team would need loads of luck to come out of its nightmare in the Indian Premier League.
Languishing at the bottom of the table with just one win from nine outings, McCullum said all he and his teammates could do was to try their best and hope for some luck.
“I guess we need a lot of luck from here on,” a dejected McCullum said.
“We need to clock five wins. We will have to try as hard as we possibly can to get some momentum back our way and get some results in the long-term,” said the Kiwi stumper after the team’s defeat against Delhi Daredevils last night.
McCullum himself has been less than impressive in the tournament and the KKR skipper had no qualms admitting that.
“I have been trying to put my heart and soul into my game, but it has not worked in the tournament so far. We have to come back to the things which we have been doing well and be positive.
“We have to work on how we can get out of this. Perhaps approach the game from that perspective. It is going to be a pretty tough 10 days,” he felt.
“Sitting at the bottom of the table is obviously very disappointing for us as a team. But we have to look forward and enhance our performance and play some good cricket, he added.
