‘Just having Viru back doesn’t solve our problem’

Virender Sehwag making a comeback from injury has not helped Delhi Daredevils one bit in their disastrous campaign and skipper Mahela Jayawardene feels that having the senior opener back in the side does not put an end to all their problems.

“It’s not just about Viru. Just having Viru does not really solve our problem. As a batting unit, we need to score runs and be more consistent. Out of the six games, the one in Mumbai and the match against CSK have been two bad games. We should have at least won two matches by now,” Jayawardene said, trying to put up a brave front after his team was shot out for 83 against CSK to lose the match by 86 runs.

Daredevils’ chance of a recovery is gone for all practical reasons but Jayawardene was not ready to throw in the towel as yet and wants his boys to show more determination.

“If we don’t believe that we can qualify, then we should not be playing in the first place. I still believe we can get to six points and then suddenly force ourselves somewhere in the middle of the table.”
