Skipper Kohli talked about the win against KXIP and said that he and his team will enjoy their ride in the league as they have now managed to register their fourth win in the last five games.
“We won 4 out of the last 5 we have played, it could have been 5 out of 5. We are just looking to enjoy our cricket. Tonight was another example of having fun. Our only focus was to play good cricket as a team, we know that we are a good side, losing 6 in a row hurt all of us.”
The big factor was definitely the 121-run partnership between ABD and Stoinis and Kohli said that changed the game for the home side as they went from a challenging score to a match-winning one thanks to that partnership.
“The partnership of ABD and Stoinis changed the match for us. At one stage we thought 175 was good but AB and Marcus got us past 200. The way they played was the deciding factor,” he said.
Kohli said that the team needs to continue to keep focusing on the basics and play the way RCB is know to play and not try and do things that will put undue pressure on the players.
“It is important that we don’t take any pressure. We just need to play how the world knows we can play. Having 6-7 bowling options is a luxury for any team. I can pick and choose who is bowling well. Marcus brings in a lot of balance to our team. It was an outstanding effort by the bowlers today,” he said.
