Sorry we couldn’t play up to our standards.- Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 7, 2017After the match, Kohli admitted that throughout the season “if the batting has clicked the bowling has not worked for them and vice-versa.” “It was a season to forget. Things are just not coming together for us,” he said.Kohli though promised that things can’t get worse and hopes that the team can perform better for the fans who come out in numbers.In the match after electing to bowl, Bangalore did really well to keep the hosts in control. Travis Head and Mandeep Singh made useful contributions after another dismal batting performance from the big guns.Once the visitors turned out to bat, the wicket looked a totally different. Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn started hammering everyone all around the park. The former registered the joint quickest fifty of the tournament ever while the latter also managed to score a half century on his comeback. They both stitched in a partnership of 105 runs in 37 balls to take the game away from the hosts. It was a mere formality but the visitors did lose a couple of wickets before crossing the line eventually.advertisementBangalore in their 13 matches so far this season, have managed to win only two games, and a washed out game against Sunrisers Hyderabad.  The Challengers have only one game left in the season, at the Feroz Shah Kotla against the team from the capital on the last day of league phase.last_img
