Royal Challengers Bangalore’s skipper Virat Kohli was an enraged man after his team was rolled over for 49 at Eden Gardens by Kolkata Knight Riders the last night. KKR won the match by 82 runs and left fans in shock as RCB lasted only 9.4 overs and no batsman reached double figures.
Speaking soon after the defeat, an angry Kohli said, “Our worst batting performance, it really hurts. After the kind of half that we had, we thought we could capitalize and chase it down. Reckless batting. I can’t say anything at the moment. It was that bad. This is just not acceptable.”
Kohli himself was dismissed for a golden duck after being distracted by someone behind the sightscreen. He said, “The sightscreen is very small here, one guy got up as the bowler was loading up, that distracted me. Still, it wasn’t a big deal. That was just one down. Nine guys could have done the job.”Also, Read Yogi Adityanath cuts security cover for Akhilesh, Mulayam, Maya
Kohli summed up the RCB batting performance saying, “There’s nothing to review anything about the second half, it was that bad. We need to forget it and move forward. We’re a much better team. We got 200 plus in the last game. I’m sure everyone realizes what they’ve done wrong. You have to come out, show intent and back yourselves. I’m sure we won’t bat like that again in the tournament.
After the start they got, the spinners did well. Restricting to 130 was a good effort. We’re going back home for a couple of games. We’ve got back-to-back games, need to try and win those to get some momentum.” he concluded.Also, Read Models Asked To Remove Saffron Scarves Before Entering Taj Mahal Because They Carried Hindu Religious Symbols & Words Like ‘Jai Shri Ram’
