The odds may be against Rajasthan Royals but all-rounder Kevon Cooper said his team is ready to take on IPL table toppers Delhi Daredevils on Sunday.

Cooper said Rajasthan are eager to bounce back from their 46-run loss to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous outing.

"We are looking back to bounce back from defeat (against RCB). Boys have got a few days rest and they are looking to get back tothe ground. We are ready," said Cooper on Saturday.

"It is going to be tough but we have a very good team. Delhi has played exceptionally well but cricket is a funny game. Hopefully, we can beat them and get back to the winning ways," he said.

Cooper, who has emerged as one of the leading wicket-takers in IPL V, said the break helped the players to reflect on their performance.

"Guys had time to think about performance in the break. We need to win more games," he said. Delhi wicket-keeper Naman Ojha said even though they have been on a roll, they are not taking anything for granted. “We are not looking too forward.  We are concentrating on one game at a time,” he said. Ojha is happy to pick the brains of seniors in the team. “I am getting to learn a lot from the seniors. Mahela, Viru and KP have been of great help. During practice or in the match they always come and advise me. It is a great experience sharing a dressing room with them.”

Meanwhile, West Indian quick Andre Russell is eager to getinto the playing XI. “I still believe I can get into final eleven. Whenever I will get the chance I will like to grasp it with both hands.”
