Chargers still looking for first win

Despite losing their opening two matches in the Indian Premier League, the Deccan Chargers are refusing to hit the panic button.

The Hyderabad franchise lost their opening game against the Knight Ryders by five wickets before coming up against a Virender Sehwag-inspired Daredevils team.

The Chargers next face the Rajasthan Royals team who will be buoyed after picking up their first win of the tournament against the Kings XI.

Chargers vice-captain Adam Gilchrist believes they need a spark to ignite their challenge.

"I don't think we need to panic. It's a long tournament and we are very determined to try and turn things around," he told Asian Age.

"It would take one little thing to ignite us. One performance is going to capture everyone and we're all going to rise up from that.

"There are so many talented cricketers no doubt and the challenge for us is to work out who that's going to be."

Rajasthan skipper Shane Warne is wary over the wounded Chargers team.

"They are dangerous players. Gilly and (Andrew) Symonds are fantastic cricketers and I hope they don't get going against us," the retired Australian spinner said.

"The Chargers have had a bad start. There is no doubt of their capabilities and hence I am sure they will rebound. They are a tough side but we are ready for the challenge.

"It is still early days and there is a long way to go in the tournament."
