RCB coach Simon Katich admitted mistake, said- ‘We lost our way after 10th match’

Abu Dhabi: RCB head coach Simon Katich has admitted that after the 10th match, his batsmen failed to perform as expected, which led to his team dropping out of the playoffs in the IPL 2020. Bangalore’s team suffered a six-wicket defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL Eliminator on Friday due to the poor performance of the batsmen.

Katich said in the press conference after the match, ‘We feel that before the last four matches, we were on the right track till the 10th match. If we look at the performance, perhaps we could not perform as expected with the bat and after a very good start in the tournament, we probably fell behind in this department. Katich gave full credit to the batsmen of Sunrisers Hyderabad who stopped their team on low scores.

He said, ‘Sunrisers are credited, they stopped us quite well and after that we kept chasing. We believed that if we score 150 runs then we could have a chance with two leg spinners (Yuzvendra Chahal and Adam Jampa) in the team. The former Australian batsman said, ‘The wicket was slow and there was a slight turn. It was disappointing to score just 130 runs.

In the eliminator, captain Virat Kohli started the innings and Katich was asked if there was a loss to the team due to too much change in the combination. Talking about a fixed combination, we did it in the first 10 matches but unfortunately, Finch was unable to score as expected.

He said, ‘Josh Philip came, he got a chance and before the playoffs we thought that Virat Kohli would start the innings and unfortunately it did not succeed. Like in the past, we did not make much changes and we had to make changes due to the form. Katich also praised the young Devadatta Padikal who scored around 500 runs in his first IPL season.
