Kolkata:

For a team that was mired in controversies in the first three seasons, Kolkata Knight Riders have emerged as one of the favourites in the ongoing IPL and assistant coach Vijay Dahiya on Friday attributed the team's success to the newly found unity among the players.


On a six-match winning streak, KKR have virtually assured itself a place in the play-offs, comfortably placed at second position behind leaders Delhi Daredevils with 17 points.

KKR's domination can be gauged from the fact that they have lost only once in their last 10 appearances, and Dahiya said the Shah Rukh Khan-owned team has played consistent cricket this season.

"Our consistency is better than last two seasons," he said during the pre-match press conference here.

"Our team is like one big family. Everybody has respect for each other. The important thing is that all the players are enjoying each other's success," Dahiya said.

"If you look at our game there have been partnerships be it in batting or bowling. Our fielding standard also has been great, we are probably one of the best fielding sides in the competition. We are playing smart cricket at the crucial time," he added.

Asked whether they have any specific plan up their sleeves for Sachin Tendulkar, Dahiya said, "You always make plans for a particular player, it's not Sachin alone.

"There are other players in the team like (Kieron) Pollard, (Dinesh) Karthik and (Ambati) Rayudu."
