Chennai: Delhi Daredevils allrounder Yogesh Nagar blamed the nine-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings on the loss of early wickets which left his side's bowlers with just 114 runs to defend here. "We lost four wickets in powerplay overs. Despite that our bowlers did well to stretch the match to the 16th over. We will try and win the remaining matches and continue to lead the point table or finish second in the pool," Nagar said at the post-match press conference. "We will focus on the remaining three games and continue our winning ways," he added.

Asked if the team's middle order was weak, Nagar, who made 43 not out against Chennai, said, "The middle order batsmen scored runs. We are not weak in the middle order. We have taken lessons from this match. Right now the

focus is on the remaining three games in the league phase. Today, we wanted to stitch partnerships after having lost four early wickets. They bowled well and our concentration was on partnerships. That is the reason we failed to make more runs."
