Bangalore: The find of IPL-7 for Royal Challengers Bangalore, Yuzuvendra Chahal, said on Saturday that poor bowling in the death and below-par batting denied their team entry into the playoffs of the T20 league.
"Our batting did not fire despite the presence of big names, and our bowling as well in death overs was not good. This denied us a chance to enter the playoffs," Chahal told reporters after RCB's defeat to Chennai Super Kings.
Chennai Super Kings cruised to a comfortable eight-wicket victory over an out-of-sorts Royal Challengers Bangalore to strengthen their second place bid. "For instance, Rajasthan Royals scored 64 runs in 17 balls.
If we had bowled well and taken wickets, we would have won next three to four matches," Chahal added.
