Indian Premier League 2016: Jacques Kallis warns table-toppers KKR against slip up similar to last season

Kolkata: Kolkata Knight Riders have looked one of the most consistent teams in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016, but head coach Jscques Kallis has warned the team of being complacent and suffering due to it.

Kallis said that it was a good feeling for the team to be sitting at the top but also warned them of going through something similar last year.

"The positive of course is we're atop the table. We're sitting pretty in a good position. I suppose some of the negatives might be we were pretty similar to this last year, then sort of relaxed towards the end," Kallis told reporters on the sidelines of 'Knight Golf' a charity initiative at RCGC here today.

Last year, KKR were in a similar position at the top, post which they lost two consecutive matches against Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals to slip out of top-four and miss a playoff berth.

"We are aware of that and hopefully we have learnt from it. We're working hard. The way the guys gel together getting a balanced side, there's a lot of positives going forward," the legendary South African all-rounder said.

KKR will now take on Gujarat Lions in Match 38 of the tournament on May 8 at the Eden Gardens.
