Pune: A disappointed Rising Pune Supergiants head coach Stephen Fleming said they are still struggling to find the right combination after the new outfit slumped to its fourth consecutive defeat in the ongoing Indian Premier League.

Fleming said it's high time for the Supergiants to return to winning ways to keep themselves afloat in the tournament. “I was pretty angry with the way things went today. So my morale needs to be boost. But I have been in the Indian Premier League long enough to know we have to sleep on it. It is becoming pretty clear we have to get victories. Even in the last 3 games we had good chances of winning,” he said.

 

After the win over defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Supergiants suffered four consecutive defeats —the latest being the two wickets loss against Kolkata Knight Riders last night — to languish at the second last spot in the eight-team standings. And Fleming said it is always difficult to build a new team.

“We just need to move on. As a new team we are trying to develop a culture and some camaraderie, it does take a lot more work. So we are working hard but it’s tough,” Fleming said.
