“I still believe in the team”, Shreyas Iyer says KKR will be unstoppable once they get going

Must read

Shreyas Iyer | BCCI/IPLKolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are enduring a torrid time in the ongoing IPL, having lost 5 out of their 8 games to currently occupy the 8th spot in the 10-team standings.

However, skipper Shreyas Iyer is confident of a turnaround and he also believes the two-time champions would be “unstoppable as a team” once they get into their groove.

“We got off to a really good start with three wins out of four games but after that things didn’t go pretty well for us but I still believe in the team,” Iyer told the official website of the team.

“We are ticking all the boxes to get on to the field and win matches. It’s just the execution part (where we are lacking). It’s just a matter of time once we get going, we will be unstoppable as a team,” he said.

In the 2021 season, KKR had won only two out of their first seven games before bouncing back and registering five out of their last seven games to storm into the qualifiers and eventually finished as the runners-up.

“We just got to know the qualifiers are at the Eden Gardens so we’ll put in our 100 per cent efforts to see to it that we win the games and go out there and entertain the fans,” Iyer said.

“The atmosphere has been amazing right from the start. The results are part and parcel of the game and definitely, the way we have been preparing as a team it is simply outstanding and people are putting in hard yards to see to it we win matches.

“It is unfortunate that the results aren’t going our way and as Sam (Billings) said, we have built the foundation really well. It’s just time to execute the right things at the right time.”

Kolkata Knight Riders will face Delhi Capitals in their next clash at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on April 28.
