New Delhi: Delhi Daredevils all-rounder Johan Botha feels it is time for the seniors to stand up and take responsibility to help the team end its six-match losing streak in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Botha remained hopeful the Daredevils can taste their first win in the season against Mumbai Indians here Sunday.
He said that six consecutive losses hurt and they focussed on the game against Mumbai Indians to end the losing streak. "Yes, it hurts. None of us, when we got here wanted this situation, but out of these situations, there are great opportunities for the guys to put a stop to this slide. We are just taking it one game at a time. We can't look and say that we want to win eight or nine out of ten games or whatever it is to get into the play offs. For now, from this situation we just concentrate and focus on one game which, for now is against Mumbai Indians," he said.
Botha said Mumbai Indians are a strong side and hoped one of his team mates will come out with a match winning performance. "We respect them (Mumbai Indians) and we know they are a really good team. But we hope that in our squad someone will have put up their hand and put a really good performance, a big match performance and pull the other guys with him and that's what we need. We need one or two guys
