Coach Manpreet Singh is keen on giving an opportunity to those who have shown positive intent. He also hinted that the team would be experimenting in the last four matches, including in the defence unit. It will not be surprising if players who haven't had enough chances are included in the starting-7.

"I know it is going to be tough, but it's not impossible. We've many talented players, but unfortunately, the squad has failed to live up to the expectations. The boys have played well in the matches, but somehow we've lost the plot in the crucial last few minutes of the game. This has been a big concern."
