We can't blame the break, says Pathan

New Delhi, May 8: After losing to Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday night, Delhi Daredevils all-rounder Irfan Pathan refuses to blame a long break cost them a defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla.

"I don't think so, we have prepared really well. Last couple of days, our preparation has been wonderful. The guys have been working hard. No matter if we win or loss, we will be consistent with our intensity. There was nothing because of the break because sometimes breaks are a good thing. We can't blame the break, it's very simple we just didn't play well.

Talking to the reporters after their loss to Kolkat Knight Riders said, the team did enjoy their good run in the fifth edition of IPL and would look forward to maintain their winning momentum irrespective of their loss to Gautam Gambhir's XI.

"We had some good days in this IPL and we will make sure that from next game we keep that momentum going," said Irfan, whose 22-ball 36 helped helped Kolkata to cross the 150-mark.

"We wanted to win this game the most because we might play KKR again in the tournament. So, we had the chance and we wanted to win it particularly more than any other game. Two quick wickets and no one actually was able to get to a big score," he added.

He also added that the team is keen on winning all matches and there is no issue of complacency.

"So we want to make sure we keep ourselves under pressure to maintain the same intensity. When you don't win, lot of things come out of it. Losing is never a positive thing. There is no issue of complacency as we want to make sure we win all our matches."
