New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils batsman Kedar Jadhav feels his team needs to post bigger scores and take wickets upfront to get their floundering campaign back on track in the Indian Premier League.

"We are not getting enough wickets with the new ball. Talking about the match, I think we were 20-30 runs short. We had to setup an attacking field as the score was less and the bowlers ended up giving runs," said Jadhav after Daredevils lost to the Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets after putting up 152 for five on board.

The Delhi team, second from bottom in the points table with two wins from six games, is relying on its home games at the Ferozshah Kotla to make a comeback in the tournament. (Expected KP to go after me, says Tambe)

The Daredevils face the Chennai Super Kings on Monday. Asked about how the wicket played in the opening game at Ferozshah Kotla, Jadhav said: "It was comfortable to play the fast bowlers but the spinners were getting a lot of grip from the surface. The bounce was also okay."
