Virat Kohli added that his side needed to play positive cricket to emerge out of their losing streak after they suffered yet another loss in the IPL [Indin Premier League] Bengaluru. RCB endured another crushing defeat, this time at the hands of the Suresh Raina's side Gujarat Lions, who notched up a seven-wicket victory with 6.1 overs to spare to revive their IPL play-off hopes.

"It is never easy to lose games. Tonight was not clinical. We need to get better with our performances. You got to come out and play with intent," Kohli said after the game.

"We tried to do it with the bat. The only way to come out of it is to play positive cricket. We are putting too much pressure on the team. Individuals need to stand up and take responsibility. It should not be the same two-three guys performing all the time," the 28-year-old added.

The Indian skipper didn't give any excuse for their top-order collapse as they were reduced to 23-3 by seamer Andrew Tye early in the innings.

"The ball was coming on decently well. Both the innings under lights the ball behaves the same."
