We are under pressure to win every game: Simons

Delhi Daredevils coach Eric Simons said the team was ‘under pressure’ after losing four opening matches and now have to win a lot of games from here on. ‘Even after losing matches, the team’s morale is good and certainly there is pressure to win. We are under pressure to win every game. Hope this pressure will lead us to better results. The guys got to be positive and have to work hard for tomorrow’s game. That’s all we can do,’ said the former bowling coach of India on the eve of their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Simons said it can’t get any worse than losing first four matches and being placed at the bottom of the points table. However, the team obviously was disappointed with the results, but is happy with the positive attitude of the players, he added. The absence of three key players, Kevin Pietersen, Virender Sehwag and Morne Morkel, in initial stages was the cause for the team’s current position in the points table, Simons said. ‘We have to get into winning habit,’ he added.
