Dashing Pakistani batsman Misbah-ul Haq said despite nothing going right for his Banglore Royal Challengers team in the Indian Premier League, the side will try to come out of this phase by trying something radical.

"It is difficult time for us. Nothing is going right. The defeat brings out criticism and flaws become too evident. We are not under pressure but we will try and come out of this phase," Misbah told reporters on the eve of Saturday's match against host Rajasthan Royals.

"It is time when we have to back each other, only then we will be able to come out of this difficult situation. Otherwise, we will plunge deeper into trouble," he said.

Misbah said the wicket at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium was good and should help the team.

"It is good wicket for batting but it also offers bounce and movement," said Misbah adding that his team might try for something radical because anything else was not working.

Misbah said the team was not affected by the recent series of blasts in the Pink City.

"The blasts in Jaipur have no bearings. These things happen now in all parts of world so we would try to focus on match."

On the criticism melted out by franchise owner Vijay Mallya, Misbah said it was their successive defeats which had "made us look that bad".

"Such things come with defeats only. This is part of cricket. If we keep on winning everything will be OK. There is pressure on captain, he too wants to win but nothing is going right. It is frustration of defeats which has instigated even Vijay Mallya to throw criticism," he said.
