Daredevils must bat better - Jayawardene

April 24, 2013

"That's where we were lacking, we're not consistent enough to compete I think. On this wicket particularly I think it was probably a 140, 150 wicket, so you need to get to that par score. We're disappointed we can't get to that score and give our bowlers a chance against this Kings XI side, the bowling attack they had today, 150 was easily a par score on this wicket today. It was a bit of a tough wicket, but that was a disappointment.

"We can't think about eight games, we need to think about the next game in hand and T20 games are mainly won in batting and that's where we've been not consistent enough, so we just need to make sure we at least get to a par score and give ourselves a chance, and the games that we'll dominate, we'll dominate like we did against Mumbai [Indians], but we need to get to that par score. So overall we need to be much more consistent."
