We need to train hard: GilchristPune: Kings XI Punjab needs to train harder to get their campaign back on track, captain Adam Gilchrist said after his team`s second successive loss in the Indian Premier League (IPL) Sunday night.

Kings XI suffered a 22-run defeat at the hands of the Pune Warriors at the newly inaugurated stadium Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium here.

Gilchrist felt that in a long tournament there was scope to make a comeback and their main focus would be on addressing that issues.

"We need to train hard and turn it around. We can go through a form slump in this kind of long tournament and our prime purpose is to arrest it and make a comeback," said Gilchrist.

The former Australian wicketkeeper felt that giving away too many runs towards the end and a poor start was the cause for their loss.

"We gave away 30 runs too many, the ten minutes of madness towards the end of our bowling and bad calls towards the start of our batting cost us the game," he said.

Meanwhile, a happy captain of the Pune Warriors, Sourav Ganguly, was delighted with his team`s performance.


He praised both the bowlers and the batsman for a job well done but felt that there was still a lot of time left in the tournament and that anything could happen.

"We bowled well and also batted well towards the end. The late onslaught took us to 160 plus but it was certainly a 150 pitch. The crowd was fantastic as it has been the case in the IPL. Still a long way to go in the tournament," he said.
