New Delhi: Livid with his batsmen after yet another loss, Delhi Daredevils skipper Mahela Jayawardena said their inconsistency is not letting the side post even a decent total for the bowlers to defend.

The Daredevils slumped to their seventh loss in the Indian Premier League after going down by five wickets to Kings XI Punjab on Tuesday night.

"That's where were we are lacking. We are not consistent enough to compete. This wicket was probably a 140-150 wicket, we needed to get that par score. We are disappointed that we could not get that score and not give our bowlers a chance. Against the bowling attack they had today, 150 was easily a par score," Mahela said when asked about the brittle batting line up that put up just 120 in their home game.
