Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir on Monday said the team needs to continue to do what it has been doing so far in the Indian Premier League.

On balance in the team, Gambhir said, “Look people are saying this because we are right at the top of the table, you wouldn’t have said it had we been in the middle or somewhere down. T20 format you can’t say which is the most balance side because this is a format where one individual can take the game away from you.”

“It is still the start of the tournament, we need to keep continuing the way what we have done in the last five games, because we have realised what has happened last year, we were right at the top of the table till the 12th game, suddenly we did not qualify for the playoffs, so we have got to learn from the mistakes, hopefully the way we have started we can continue the same way, winning is a habit, its a good habit to have,” he told reporters here after launching the Sansui Curve 4K Ultra HD LED TV.

When asked about success of his Delhi teammate Virat Kohli in all formats, Gambhir said, “Confidence is very important, sometimes you are going to keep doing the same things to prolong your form. He is being doing that really well, consistency is really important in all formats of the game and he has shown how consistent he is and that is what you wish for in international cricket… that you can continue that form as long as possible in all three formats and that is what he is doing,, hopefully he can continue the same way..”
