2nd Inning (RCB)

RCB didn’t start off well in the run chase. They lost two of their main players, V Kohli and Faf du Plessis inside 5 overs. That’s where the run chase becomes more difficult.

They lost another wicket on the last ball of the first powerplay, in A Rawat. M Theekshana got him out lbw and RCB were 42 for 4 in the first six overs.

G Maxwell played a small cameo of 26 of 11 balls with two fours and two sixes. But he was undone by R Jadeja’s straighter one in the 7th over.

IPL News: Reason for losing a game/What went wrong with RCB:- (CSK vs RCB)

  1. The partnership between R Uthappa and S Dube. After two early wickets, RCB could not find ways to get wickets in the middle overs. The massive 165 runs stand helps CSK post a big total of 216.
  2. Death overs – RCB lacked those bowlers who can bowl well in the death overs. M Siraj and J Hazelwood’s strength is to bowl with the new ball. They are sometimes not as effective in the death overs as with the new ball. And A Deep is a bit inexperienced.
  3. Losing two quick wickets in the run chase. RCB lost two quick wickets in the run chase. That too of Faf du Plessis and V Kohli inside the first 5 overs. When you are chasing a big total of 216, you need a good start in the powerplay which did not happen this time with RCB.
