Bangalore: New South Wales captain Simon Katich said a couple of dropped catches cost his side the Champions League Twenty20 semifinal against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Friday.
Katich said if not for Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle, his side could have won the match. Chasing an imposing 203 for two, Gayle struck a whirlwind 92, while Kohli played an unbeaten 84-run knock to power RCB to a six-wicket win over NSW on Friday night.
"Virat was brilliant, Gayle was awesome. We tried different lengths, different paces, it was a big learning experience for the young bowlers, probably a couple of dropped catches cost us today. Earlier on the ball was holding up a bit," a disappointed Katich said after crashing out of the tournament.
