Hyderabad:

Cohesion among the team-members was the secret behind Deccan Chargers' winning performance in the last year's Indian Premier League, captain Adam Gilchrist said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a function here, the former Australia opening batsman credited Deccan Chargers' fielding coach Michael Young for assembling all the players during IPL-2 in South Africa and made them sing a song to tighten the bond among them.

The song instilled cohesion among the players, thus helping them achieve a turnaround in the second edition of the showpiece tournament, Gilchrist said.

The left-hand batsman expressed confidence that the team would also win the third edition of IPL, commencing on March 12.

Deccan Chargers are leaving for Mumbai on Wednesday for the tournament.
