Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore upbeat after ‘crucial’ win

first_imgRoyal Challengers Bangalore lived to fight another day, thanks to their thrilling one-run win over Kings XI Punjab in Mohali last night. Following the dramatic game, RCB leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal said it was a crucial victory for the team and it would help them stay in the hunt for the knockouts. (Full IPL Coverage/Points Table)RCB, studded with star batsmen, were languishing at seventh in the points tally and were in desperate need of a win to keep their hopes alive in the IPL. Thanks to a cracking knock by AB de Villiers and a great spell by Shane Watson (2/22), RCB were able to pull off a thriller.”Obviously we were seventh on the points table (moved to 6th after the win). This win was very crucial for us, we got two points, we are still in the fray (to make the playoffs),” said Chahal at the post match press conference after his team snatched a nerve-wracking win. (Virat Kohli’s tactical brilliance leaves Shane Watson in awe)Chasing a target of 176, KXIP were cruising along with skipper Murali Vijay smashing 89 off 57 balls but RCB stayed in the contest, thanks to a sensational penultimate over by Watson, where he gave away only seven runs.Soon after, Chris Jordan managed to hold on to his nerves, giving away 15 runs in the final over, when the home team needed 17. (Shane Watson stars as Bangalore beat Punjab by 1 run)Asked what was the thinking behind bringing Jordan to bowl the final over, Chahal revealed, “Chris Jordan is a death bowler, even when he bowls for England. (After discussion among team members before last over), he was told to bowl a slower one, a little bit shorter, because leg side boundary is very big and very difficult to hit. On this wicket, batsman always wants pace and Virat (Kohli) bhai told Chris to bowl slower ones on the leg but a little bit shorter.”advertisementThe 25-year-old felt 175 was a good score to defend on the Mohali track. “On this wicket, 170-175 is a very good total. Even before the match, we planned 160-165 on this wicket,” Chahal, who returned with figures of 4-0-30-1, said.Meanwhile, Kings XI Pinjab’s Marcus Stoinis rued a missed opportunity after the heartbreaking defeat.Needing four off the last delivery, Stoinis (34, 22 balls) could only get two.Asked if KXIP expected Jordan to bowl the last over as Varun Aaron also had one over left, Stoinis said, “In our calculations, we knew it was one of those two guys bowling that over. Doesn’t really take you by surprise, you just go with what happens. But yeah, you have plans for each one and you have sort of an idea what they are going to try and bowl”.Stoinis was gracious in defeat and heaped praise on Jordan, saying “he bowled well and did the job for his team”.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
