RCB achieved a significantly improved performance on Friday. By the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings who thanks to half-centuries from Devdutt Padikkal (70) and Kohli (53). It took 156/6 but still lost six wickets after some incisive bowling before Dwayne. Bravo and Shardul Thakur.

The two losses have plummeted RCB‘s fortunes and he is currently third in the table with 10 points in nine games behind CSK and Delhi Capitals, who are first and second with 14 points each. Rajasthan Royal, who has played one game less, could put even more pressure on RCB if he wins the next game.
“We spoke of areas we didn’t want them to hit and we didn’t do that. That little bit of X factor was missing in the first 5-6 overs. Got to get on that winning run again. This one is a bit more disappointing. The first one we just weren’t in the game. Have to show more courage in crunch moments. This tournament goes by quickly,” he added.
