RCB scored 131 runs for 7 wickets while batting first. AB de Villiers scored 56 runs on behalf of this team. Sunrisers achieved the target in 19.4 overs with an unbeaten 50-run knock by Kane Williamson.
Kohli said after the match, ‘If you talk about the first innings, then I don’t think we had scored enough. We lost by a small margin and if we had dismissed Kane (Williamson) then the result would have been different. Overall, we allowed their bowlers to bowl according to them and did not keep them under pressure.
He said, ‘The last 4 matches were very strange for us. We played shots directly into the hands of the fielders. Kohli said about this season being very competitive, ‘This time there was no such case as playing on the field of his or the opposing team. Things were the same for everyone. You had to show your real strength and probably this was a very competitive season.
