Shakib said KKR will stick to the same plan, and they would overcome the challenges accordingly.

"The process we have been following so far, we will be following the same formula. Ever since we got to Abu Dhabi, or the UAE, we were in a knockout-mode and we have been overcoming all of those challenges one by one. A good thing about our team now is that the confidence level we are developing within the camp, no team will take us lightly," said Shakib.

Shakib heaped praises on his teammate Sunil Narine for his splendid performance against RCB, the mystery spinner took four wickets while scored 26 off 15 which turned the table for KKR.

"Sunil played extraordinary cricket yesterday. Both in batting and bowling. Yesterday was completely his day. I am very happy that his contribution won us the game," he said.
