Inconsistency has been our biggest drawback: GambhirRanchi: Lack of consistency has been Kolkata Knight Riders` biggest drawback in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League, feels skipper Gautam Gambhir.

"If you play inconsistent cricket, the results will be before you. So this I think is the biggest drawback," Gambhir told reporters on the eve of his team`s match against Pune Warriors here.

The defending champions are placed seventh in the points table with six wins and eight defeats, their slim hopes of securing a play-offs berth hanging by the thread.


Gambhir said it was important for a team to click in all departments.

"The important point is that if you don`t play good cricket, you will be where you are. If you don`t play well in all the three departments (batting, bowling and fielding), you won`t win matches. So it is necessary for all the three departments to complement each other," he said.

Gambhir said there was no point blaming the wicket for a loss.

"The wicket (here) is good. If you don`t play good cricket what can the wicket do. We don`t see how the other team has batted and what mistakes they had committed.

"It is a decent wicket and it is still a 150 wicket, it was the same even when we played the last one (on Sunday against Royal Challengers Bangalore)."

"If you don`t bat well you can`t bat well on any wicket and if you can play well then you can play well on every wicket. It is a normal wicket like any other one."

In IPL`s first match here on Sunday, KKR defeated Bangalore riding on Jacques Kallis and Sunil Narine`s superlative efforts.
