Cuttack:

With most of the frontline batsmen in not-so-impressive form, Deccan Chargers skipper Adam Gilchrist is banking on his bowlers to win Friday's Indian Premier League match against Kings XI Punjab.

"Since our bowling strength is good, we have every possibility to win the match at our home venue," Gilchrist told reporters after the net session here.

Admitting that both VVS Laxman and Rohit Sharma were not in good form, Gilchrist said, "I hope both Laxman and Sharma will get back to their form soon."

Gilchrist projected a 200-plus target for his team for the next two matches.

Smarting from two consecutive defeats, Gilchrist's counterpart Kumar Sangakkara was optimistic about breaking the duck and said, "We will try to win the match by exploiting the weakness of the opposition."

Sangakkara also admitted that the team's bowling had not been satisfactory so far.

"We are working on it," he said.
