Mohali, Apr 2: Kings XI Punjab captain Adam Gilchrist on Monday said there is no secret tactic to victory, but added they have a balanced squad that is capable of beating the best in business.
"We necessarily don't have big list of names that match up with some other franchisees, but we have a balanced squad," Gilchrist.
KXIP may have not won a title so far, but the Aussie insisted they were not going too much into the history, and instead want to derive positives from the past.
"We have a balanced squad. We are playing competitive cricket. I don't think there is any secret tactic that will guarantee victory," he said in response to a question.
Joe Dawes, the newly-appointed Indian bowling coach, who will play the same role for KXIP and Mike Young, the side's fielding coach, were also present at the press conference.
Dawes sounded confident of an improved show. "I am delighted to be a part of Kings XI Punjab as it is a young and enthusiastic team with some of the best players on its side. I am very confident about team's performance in IPL-5 and am looking forward to a great season of cricketing tournament," said Dawes.
