Downcast after going down to title holders Kolkata Knight Riders by 13 runs at the Eden Gardens, Duminy regretted that his bowlers leaked 15-20 extra runs.

"We got three games to go in the tournament. We are pretty much out of it, but we have a lot of pride to play for," said the South African, with Delhi now sitting above only wooden spooners Kings XI Punjab in the leaderboard.

After 11 outings, Duminy's side has gleaned eight points, and have a 4-7 win-loss record. Duminy stated his bowlers were expensive in the opening and closing stages of the Knight riders innings.

"Probably we leaked 15-20 too many, I thought we gave it a good go with the bat," added Duminy.

DD Captain said we had leaked too many in the first six. One stage they were looking at 180 or so. We took wickets in Athe middle, contained them. But again in the in the last five overs they got 60-odd which was too much.

Asked whether he was disappointed at the team's fielding lapses, Duminy said "Definitely. That's been the nature of our tournament. Unfortunately, we just let opportunities down.
