Gilly bats for team after loss

Mohali, April 11 -- Despite his side's 10-wicket defeat at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Domestic League, Kings XI Punjab skipper Adam Gilchrist defended his team, saying it was just an off-day for them.

He said that batting failure let the team down but there was no need to press the panic button.

"We were outplayed by CSK but it was just an off-day for us. We did not bat well. There were bad balls but we could not put them across the rope ... it's a bad day," he told reporters at the post-match conference.
