"If we continue to do the right things, yes there will be the balance we need to look at, we are really looking at how we can bounce back and get the momentum going," told the head coach. 

The head coach has remained positive after his team's consecutive three losses and being at the bottom of the table. 

"One good thing is we can only go up, that's how we look at it," told Kumble in an exclusive interview with Cricketnmore. 

Anil Kumble further said that they will be looking one game at a time and not look too far ahead. 

"It's a nine-game tournament for us, we need to take one game at a time, not look too far ahead, we are very confident with our preparation, the way we have gone about," felt the head coach. 

Addressing the loss versus Chennai Super Kings, former Indian leg spinner observed that Nicholas Pooran getting back into form is one of the few positives from the game. 

"There are few positives as well coming out from the last game, Pooran getting into form and batted really well, Rahul and Mayank again showed us the importance of powerplay and how to get off to a good start," observed Anil Kumble.
