Replying to a query on planning for the match against CSK as previous encounters ?between the two teams in IPL generated lot of interest, he said performing well on the field would be key to success.

"Just the same. To play as well as we can," he said.

Asked if playing in the semi-finals puts any extra pressure, he said the match is a knock-out and that such a pressure is felt within.

"It is a big game. But, it is a knock-out game. I think the pressure you put on yourself is just from within. It is just another game in terms of preparation and the way we want to execute our skills," he said.

Playing down the face-off between KXIP's Glen Maxwell and CSK's Ravichandran Ashwin, Bailey just said that the match tomorrow would be exciting.
