IPL 9: Back-to-back losses not a worry for Delhi Daredevils, says Quinton De Kock

Mohali: Reeling from back-to-back defeats they might be but Delhi Daredevils have still not lost the momentum and will be back to winning ways sooner than later, feels the team's batting mainstay Quinton de Kock.

After their seven-wicket loss to Rising Pune Supergiants, the Zaheer Khan led side lost by nine runs to bottom-placed Kings XI Punjab on Saturday.

"No, there's no worry. I don't think we're the only team with which (such a thing) has happened in the campaign this year. We've got enough games still to play, so just need to make sure we get back into our winning ways. Winning is a habit, I guess," he said in the post-match press conference on Saturday.

Double defeat
Delhi were on a roll having won five out of their seven games until they lost against Pune. They lost against Punjab even though top players including skipper Zaheer Khan were back in the side.

Defending the decision to rest the key players earlier, De Kock said, "Well there were a couple of guys who needed rest, they were a bit sore. A bit of the older guys were a bit sore.

"We've played a lot of cricket lately, so they just needed some time. We are only halfway through our campaign at this moment, so just making sure we don't have any injuries at the wrong times," he said.
