Hyderabad: Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody has said reaching the play-offs of the Indian Premier League is a only a step forward and his team now needs to gear up for the challenge ahead.
"This is only one step. We had set the goal to qualify, we have achieved that. Now, we need to gather ourselves and plan and prepare appropriately. We got a few days to do that," Moody told reporters after the Sunrisers Hyderabad got the better of Kolkata Knight Riders by five wickets last night here to make it to the play-off stage.
"The challenge ahead is an exciting one. Lot of people at the beginning of the tournament gave us no hope whatsoever. So, it is very rewarding and satisfying that we managed to evolve as a team, gel well as a team and qualify," he added.
