Kochi headed in right direction:J'dene

KSK beat defending champions CSK by seven wickets on Tuesday and marked their second victory in the Indian Premiere League tournament.

"I think we are heading in the right direction, I mean beating Mumbai and Chennai is two huge win for us and we have got a lot of positives out of these two games but its like I said early in the tournament, we have to be consistent over a period of time and we work hard in areas which we have to improve and do that," said Jayawardene.

Chasing a target of 135, reset as per the Duckworth/Lewis method, KTK were in a better position as Brendon McCullum and skipper Jayawardene kept up the required pace initially.

Stephen Fleming of CSK blamed the rainy conditions for loosing the game.

"We were in a good position to launch a game, we played well at top order, we were close to 70 for 2 after nine overs, and it''s a good position when they are heading to come. To have those overs reduced and be in a situation where we are ahead of only two-three overs, it was disappointing and we did not did well enough.

"Raina's (Suresh Raina) run out was a sound of pressure because we needed to get more runs and the more desperate we became the better they bowled and field, so it was a tough five overs from where we can't back out," said Fleming.

This was the second defeat for Mahendra Singh Dhoni''s led CSK in four matches of the IPL.
