Mumbai: Despite their inconsistent performance in the Indian Premier League so far, Chennai Super Kings allrounder Albie Morkel believes that the defending champions can still qualify for the playoffs if they sort out their problem of finishing the close games.
"The finishing is not upto the mark. It is not something we are used to. It is just the closing of the games, whether batting or bowling. It is just one bowl at the crucial time. If we get the small basics at the right time, it would make the difference," Morkel told PTI at the sidelines of a promotional event.
Admitting that they have an uphill task in their remaining matches, Morkel said, "It is a massive challenge but we like challenges. I wouldn't be surprised if we make the top four. It is going to be difficult but we are a champion team and we know how to win trophies. We have done it before and have in situations like this. So I think everyone is going to be up for it."
