Jaipur:

His side might have suffered four defeats on the trot but Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid is in no mood to press the panic button yet, saying they have still not reached 'must-win' situation in the ongoing Indian Premier League.

Rajasthan lost to Delhi Daredevils by six wickets on the home turf last night to drop to the sixth position in the standings with eight points from 10 games.

But with six matches still left, Dravid said all is not lost for the Jaipur outfit and a win will get their campaign back on track.

"We have six games left and I don't think we have reached must-win situation. First we want to win one and get back to our winning momentum which we have lost for a while. We are looking one match at a time. A win will put us back on the road," the Rajasthan skipper said at the post-match press conference on Tuesday.

"In the previous edition 16 points were enough to reach the play offs but who knows a few rain curtailed matches could change the whole scenario. I don't look at the table but we wish to win every game," Dravid added.

Dravid feels despite having a strong line-up, Rajasthan did not bat well in the middle overs against Delhi last night.

"It was a combination of good bowling (by Delhi Daredevils) and bad batting (by Rajasthan). We were going well at one stage but suddenly 4-5 wickets fell and there after we could not recover," said Dravid, who who played a fine 57-run knock and together with Ajinkya Rahane (42) added 71 runs opening stand.
