Virat Kohli’s side Royal Challengers Bangalore faced another defeat in the ongoing IPL [Indian Premier League] and are just left with one more game in the competition. RCB’s hard-hiting Travis Head in the post-match conference after the match against Kolkata Knight Riders [KKR] said that a tough competition is awaited during the play-offs as the teams who are in conflict have good batting and bowling line-ups in the squad.
“All the top four teams in contention have good batsmen and bowlers. It is going to be tough, the playoffs and the finals. They are all aggressive sides boasting match-winning players. They are coming out to blast their way. So, whoever steps up their game in the Play-offs and finals will lift the trophy this year,” Head said.
“He is unbelievable hitter of the ball. He had done that in the Big Bash for couple of years. Probably, he is one of the better hitters in IPL competition,” he said. “We got 158 runs on the board and it was on us to take advantage of it, but they put us out of the contest by getting 105 runs in six or seven overs,” he added.
“It was disappointing tonight, for we lost the match even after setting 158 runs, a challenging total. Even more disappointing was the team did get any momentum throughout the tournament,” he said.
