Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli said on Sunday it was an “incredible feeling” to qualify for the IPL play-offs with a few games to go and now their goal is to finish in the top two. of the rank.
RCB beat the Punjab Kings by six points to advance to their second straight IPL playoff.
” It’s incredible. After 2011, we didn’t do it with games to spare. Eight wins in 12 games is a great campaign. We still have two chances to finish in the top two. It should motivate us to play even more fearlessly, ” Kohli said after the game.
When you don’t have counters on the dashboard, you can take more risks. What Dev (Padikkal) and I need to do. ” The India captain, however, said there are still areas for improvement for RCB.
“15-20 points on this pitch can be crucial. We need to plug these areas. At the same time, we have strived to improve, whether in terms of defeats or victories.
We knew the box office would get slower and slower. KL (Rahul) and Mayank (Agarwal) hit really well, but we knew we were just two wickets away from getting back into the game, since he did well in the cricket test. The inclusion of Harshal (Patel) was exceptional. Yuzi (Yuzvendra Chahal) participated, as did Shahbaz (Nadeem). Garton is in. If the players don’t step up, the campaign gets out of hand. ” Player of the match Glenn Maxwell, who scored 57 of 33 balls, said he had hit well in the last two years of the game. the IPL.
” Came at a good time to strike. Lucky to hit the first two middle risks. Having it set up by the forerunners today gave us some time to get a feel for the wicket. “ Coming to RCB they wanted me to play the exact same role (like with Australia). This (Sharjah) is probably the most difficult to adjust. Spinners make it skid, which means you have to be more precise at the start of your rounds. Punjab Kings captain Rahul said he would have been happier if his team had qualified for the playoffs instead of wearing the orange cap.
I wouldn’t say I didn’t like wearing it (the Orange Cap) but I would have been happier if we had qualified. It was a score that was normal. Maybe 10-15 more races. “When a guy like Maxwell comes up with that kind of form, it makes it difficult.” He said the stick let the team down and he would take responsibility for the team’s failure as captain.
“With the stick, the last two years have been disappointing. Our staff let us down. I’ll be lying if I say it doesn’t occur to me that I’m playing a role the team demands. It’s not something that I like, but when you’re leading the team you have to accept responsibility, ”said Rahul.
“In T20, the first two or three mark most of the descents. You won’t have people in the middle order scoring 500-600 races. But we missed someone in the middle who scores those quick 30-40 runs. ” PTI PDS PDS SSC SSC
