HIGHLIGHTS

  • I have to stand in front and take the brunt of it: Kohli after RCB lose
  • We should have put pressure straight away: RCB captain Virat Kohli
  • RCB captain Virat Kohli dropped his counterpart KL Rahul twice on 83 and 90

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday admitted he should have led from the front and was to blame for dropping KL Rahul twice as his woeful fielding show allowed Kings XI Punjab to post a daunting target of 207 runs.

After being dropped twice by Kohli, Rahul wreaked havoc in the death overs and smacked boundaries all over the park. Scoring 132 off 69 deliveries, he left bowlers gasping for breath at Dubai International Stadium. RCB had no answers to Rahul’s batting show as he smoked 14 fours and 7 sixes in his scintillating knock.

Chasing a mammoth target of 207, RCB lost its key players — Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Virat Kohli — for just five runs in the initial overs. AB de Villiers and Aaron Finch tried to balance the inning but they were dismissed by the Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi. Wickets continued to fall in quick succession and Bangalore was reduced to just 109.

“I think we were pretty good in the middle phase with the ball. I have to stand in front and take the brunt of it,” Virat Kohli said in the post-match presentation ceremony.

“Cost about 30-40 runs. If we’d restricted them at 180 we wouldn’t have felt pressure to go from ball one. There are days when you have these kind of things happen. Just have to accept them. We’ve had a good game, we’ve had a bad game. Time to move on.

“We need to learn to plug those little mistakes. We did pretty well, especially closing in on the second time out and just after that. But as I said, should have led from the front with those two chances. With the bat as well, we started well, but we should have put pressure straight away,” Virat Kohli added.

Virat Kohli dropped two easy catches of KL Rahul and while batting he perished under the pressure of chasing a huge total as he mistimed a pull shot to be caught at mid-on off KXIP pacer Sheldon Cottrell for just 1.
