IPL: Kohli to bring new players who can win games for RCB
Royal Challengers Bangalore once again came under fire for their dismal performances in the ongoing Indian Premier League. They became the first team to lose four games in a row, in what is their worst ever start to the IPL campaign.
Even as RCB is accomplishing the tasks in one area, they are failing to up the ante in the other and thereby, they are failing as a team. There is a lot of catching up to do for Kohli & Co who are yet to get off the mark this season.
With a change in mentality and a change in approach, they can turn it around and the skipper reckons that they would have won two games already which didn’t really go in their favour. But RCB aren’t done yet according to Kohli. There are still 10 games in hand and as an optimistic captain, he believes it’s time for them to turn things around.
We can turn things around: Kohli
Kohli also spoke about the best combination which will drive them forward in the game and he promised to bring in fresh faces in order to produce positive results for the team. “In four games, we would have wanted one or maybe two games to go our way. We have 10 games to go, hopefully, we can turn things around.
We played well against Mumbai and in this game. This tournament is not that long, it is not going to go on for months and you have to think on your feet and have to think about the best combination going forward. Hopefully, we will get fresh guys in and they can give a match-winning performance,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.
RCB lost to Rajasthan Royals as the home side won by 7 wickets with one ball to spare. Talking about the match, Kohli said, “We were 15-20 runs short. Marcus and Moeen got us to a competitive score. With the dew factor, 15 runs more would have been more challenging. It wasn’t easy to score in the end as the wicket became slower. We made a lot of mistakes in the match.”
