Yuvi says 'Everything is possible'
After spending last 15 days in UAE, it’s time to come home and recover some lost ground. We leave the shores of UAE with mixed feelings and mixed memories. We started this year’s IPL on a right note with two consecutive wins. Though, by the end of the first leg of the IPL, we somehow couldn’t carry forward that initiative. Losing three matches in a row is definitely a set-back, which we need to overcome very quickly. We had one terrible game against Rajasthan Royals and the other two games we just didn’t play the crucial moments well.
In this format, you lose and win your battles in a very short span and unlike Test cricket or One Day cricket, you don’t have many chances to make a comeback. Ideally, while packing our bags for India, we need to leave all the excess baggage here and take the positives back home. Honestly speaking, we have plenty of them. We have the right set-up, right players, great support staff and a very sporting franchise.
We know this for a fact, that if we play to our full potential, we can be back to the winning ways. Everyone in the group believes this very strongly and are aspiring to make things better. And that’s what we aim to do when we get back to Bangalore. Before getting back to Bangalore, we have two days to recharge our batteries and channelize our energies. Hopefully, the familiar surroundings of our home ground can make this recovery a little easier.
Looking at the tournament so far, Kings Eleven Punjab have conquered the entire leg with some outstanding cricket. They are a team in form, with one department of the game backing the other. If their bowlers have gone for runs, their batsmen have taken up the challenge and chased those runs. If the bowlers have got a small total to defend they have executed their plans well to get victory for their team. Chennai Super Kings have also been consistent and done well. These two sides are sitting at top of the table but the pool is still wide open and there is chance for everyone to stage a comeback. This the time when teams leading would like to consolidate, teams like ours’ would like to recover the lost ground and sides like Mumbai would like to change their fortunes. As far as my experience says, everything is possible in this game.
