IPL 2016: Despite second consecutive loss as KXIP skipper, Murali Vijay takes positives from match against KKR

New Delhi: Murali Vijay's second innings as the new skipper of Kings XI Punjab hasn't started on a great note in Indian Premier League 2016.

Under Vijay's captaincy, the team suffered its second consecutive loss in the ninth edition of the tournament as they were defeated by 7 runs by Gautam Gambhir-led KKR at Eden Gardens on May 4.

However, the right-hander still said that there were a lot of positives to take from the match for the team.

"We didn't start well and for Maxi to put on a knock like that was unbelievable. Axar got run out at the wrong time but lot of positives for us to take," he said.

"Our bowlers were upto the mark and Sandeep has been excellent but we needed a strong start with the bat. The momentum is with us, from Rajkot, and we're looking to take that forward."
