The side is more confident now: HusseyBangalore: With his side jumping to fourth place with tonight`s thrilling four-wicket win, Kings XI Punjab skipper David Hussey says his side is confident now and keen to better in the remaining matches.

Punjab almost lost the match from a winning position but Piyush Chawla held his nerves to smash a six off the penultimate ball to steer his side home while chasing 159 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

"We tried to clutch defeat from the jaws of victory ... but a win is a win. We have confidence now. We need to go back and perform in front of our home crowd," Hussey said.

"Momentum is a big part. We did well against Chennai and now we want to do even better when we go to Mohali for the next game," he said.

Bangalore skipper said they were some runs short despite some good batting by Chris Gayle (71) and Virat Kohli (45) as they put on 158 for six.

"The last five overs of both innings were interesting, lots of wickets lots of pressure. Only scoring 30 runs off our last five overs really hurt us," he said.

"We`ve got some big games coming up, we need to get back on that roll of winning and make the semis," he added.

Azhar Mahmood, who took three wickets including that of Gayle, was adjudged man-of-the-match.

"Love it, I`m enjoying my cricket. Two big wins. Quite pleased with the performance. We just believe in ourselves, we like each other`s company, each others` success. Everyone`s working hard, it`s paying off," he said.
