That’s still annoying, RCB captain Virat Kohli: RCB captain Virat Kohli attributed the loss to Punjab Kings by giving them more runs than they had originally planned. He gave them an extra 20 runs if they wanted to tie them within 160 runs. Punjab got off to a good start but was then put under pressure by a series of wickets, but in the end, Punjab batsmen played well and KL Rahul batted for Punjab and scored.
Speaking at the awards function after the match, Kohli said, “Punjab batsmen played well. Our plans did not work out. Punjab scored well as they were bound to throw more bad balls. It is difficult to hit line and length balls on this wicket. We looked to achieve partnerships.
Also, we wanted the Strikerate to be more than 110. We failed in the batting unit. We will focus on where we can improve. Together we have decided to bring Patidar in first down. Devdutt Padikkal is a quality cricketer. We lost by 34 runs. At one stage we expected to lose by 60 to 65 runs. If so it would still be annoying. Harshal-Jamieson batted and our defeat margin narrowed.
Punjab Kings won the match by 34 runs against RCB. RCB reached the target of 180 and lost by 145 runs for the loss of 7 wickets in 20 overs. In RCB batting, Kohli scored 35, Patidar 31, and Herschelle Patel 27 runs. Punjab Kings scored 179 for 5 in the allotted 20 overs. Captain KL Rahul (91, 57 balls; 7 fours, 5 sixes) led Punjab to a respectable score with lightning innings.
