Won the toss, restricted their opponents to a low total but still, there was no change in the form of Royal Challengers Bangalore as the team which was already on brink of being ruled out of the tournament, was officially ruled out on Saturday after they failed to chase a gettable total of 158.

It was a poor show of application from their batsmen, as earlier at the time of the toss, Virat Kohli himself reckoned that it will be easy to chase the total in the evening but it seemed like it was a different pitch for the visiting team.

None of the batsmen was able to have a stay at the crease, which included AB de Villiers, Kedar Jadhav and also Travis Head.

In a quest to gain results in his favour, Kohli even dropped Chris Gayle but there was no change in team’s form and at the end of the day, RCB found themselves short by a big margin of 61 runs.

With this loss, RCB officially became the first team to be ruled out of the tournament. It was a big disappointment for them, as the star-studded lineup was expected to have a long stay in the league but that didn’t happen.

Skipper Virat Kohli was clearly upset with the performance of his team as he said –

Virat Kohli: 

“I think it’s for everyone to see. We lost that game. It’s hard for a captain to stand here and talk when the team is performing like this. Just got take it in my stride, got to move forward and learn from these kind of games. We are trying hard, but it’s the lack of intent. Guys are fearful of getting out and failing. We lost that game rather than them winning it. We are almost not in the race for the play-offs. We just got to enjoy the remaining four games and not worry about of failing.”
