Royal Challengers Bangalore has been having a horrid outing in this IPL season that isn’t ending at all. They have lost to the top and the low contenders for this season of IPL. They have played a total of 3 matches and have lost all the three of them. Now with the fourth match scheduled to be played with Rajasthan Royals today, the team will be trying to open their accounts in this IPL season. The same was reckoned by the RCB batsman, AB de Villiers saying that the team didn’t expect to lose matches like this. They are a strong squad and so have tried to make the most of their skills and expertise.
There was nothing to say said de Villiers
De Villiers smashed a 70 not out runs against the Mumbai Indians in the latest match but the team still fell short of 6 runs in the controversial fashion after Lasith Malinga bowled a no ball that went unnoticed by the on-field umpire. The team needs to fight back to the Royals who also have lost all the three matches played by them. With this match, both the team will be eyeing for victories and also to register their maiden win in IPL season 2019.
De Villiers said that the team’s preparation was amazing and excellent and the team is also balanced in nature. However, they have failed to win matches and haven’t yet started with any wins in this season. “It just so happened that Virat Kohli and I were sitting beside each other on the RCB bus back to the hotel after our emphatic defeat against Sunrisers in Hyderabad. He looked at me. I looked at him. There was nothing to say,” said de Villiers.
We have been together as a squad for more than two weeks now, and we have worked exceptionally hard said de Villiers
He further said that as a squad, the team has been together for more than two weeks now and they have been working exceptionally hard. The team’s preparation is also excellent but they should be winning matches that isn’t happening at all. “This was not what we expected. We have been together as a squad for more than two weeks now, and we have worked exceptionally hard. Our preparation has been excellent, and the team feels balanced. No question, we should be winning matches. And yet, we are not winning. We’ve played three and lost three, and RCB supporters are rightly concerned by the prospect of another disappointing season,” said de Villiers.
