Don't deserve to win if we field like that: Kohli
(Sourced from PTI)
RCB skipper Virat Kohli said they didn't deserve to win against KKR and blamed the sloppy fielding for their six-wicket loss which has jeopardized their IPL campaign. RCB slumped to their fifth defeat in seven games after failing to defend 176 against KKR Sunday night. If RCB loses the next match, they would put themselves in a precarious situation of winning all remaining games.
"If we look back, we didn't deserve to win. I don't think we're trying hard enough, we need to be hard on ourselves. We don't deserve to win if we field like that. We can't afford to field like that. We were just not good enough tonight." said Kohli. He said they need to consider every match as a virtual semi-final from now.
"We definitely missed AB de Villiers. He is probably the best player in the world and one of the best we have seen in the history of the game, so for him to be absent was a huge blow for us," Kohli said. McCullum hoped that de Villiers returns in the next match against Mumbai Indians after recovering from a viral infection.
