New Delhi: South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir says it was not lack of effort that has spelt doom for Delhi Daredevils in this Indian Premier League edition but, simply, lady luck was not smiling on them. Delhi Daredevils suffered their seventh defeat in a row when they lost to Kings XI Punjab on Monday.
"I think we are playing good cricket. It is just that luck is not favouring us. We are really working very hard. The team is going through a hard time and it is getting very tough to come out from there," Tahir said at the post-match press conference. (Also Read: Tahir counts on subcontinent experience)
From the onset it turned out to be a nightmarish campaign for the Delhi outfit and the situation turned from bad to worse with every passing game. The Daredevils are languishing at the bottom of the table with just two wins from 12 games and pride will be at stake for the Kevin Pietersen-led side in their last two matches.
