In the 60th match of the IPL 2022, RCB, under the captaincy of Faf du Plessis, had to face a crushing defeat by 54 runs against Punjab Kings. After this defeat, the captain also appeared very disappointed with the performance of the team and he has also given important advice to Virat Kohli, who is struggling with poor form. Let us know what Captain Faf du Plessis said after the defeat against Punjab.
Johnny put our bowlers under pressure – Captain
Royal Challengers Bangalore have not suffered any kind of loss in the points table even after the defeat from Punjab Kings. Even after the defeat on Friday, RCB remained in the fourth position. However, if Bangalore loses any of the remaining 2 matches, then it will be out of the playoffs. On May 13, after losing the match by a huge gap of 54 runs, Faf du Plessis said,
“Johnny put our bowlers under pressure. But, we made a comeback. This goal could have been achieved. When you are chasing big scores, you don’t have to lose wickets early and that’s where we made a mistake.”
Faf gave a big suggestion to Virat Kohli
While talking further on the match presentation, Faf du Plessis also gave some suggestions to Virat Kohli, who is battling a bad phase and said,
“When you are under a little pressure, the game puts more pressure on you. All you have to do is keep working hard and stay positive. Today he played some great shots too, he looked in a good rhythm. He is also controlling things very well. Now we have to prepare for our next match which is important for us to win at any cost.”
