Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were embarrassed by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Sunday after they were bundled out for just 49 — lowest ever IPL score — chasing 132. However, RCB fast bowler Sreenath Aravind believes that his side has the potential to turn things around. RCB will have to potentially win all their remaining six matches to make it through to the IPL 10 playoffs. Aravind says that there will be pressure on RCB but insists that if they are positive, RCB can achieve it. Aravind also says that the pitch at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru has become slow compared to previous years. RCB are currently placed in the sixth position with just five points from eight matches.

Asked if RCB can turn things around, Aravind told reporters ahead of tomorrow’s match against Gujarat Lions at the Chinnaswamy stadium, according to PTI, “Definitely. We have a bunch of good players. We know that we have to win all the six games. . Pressure will be there certainly. We have to be positive. We have to play each game and win each game,” he added. Talking about the pitch at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Aravind said, “Yes, the pitch has become a little bit slow. Not as good as it was last year. But it is a competitive pitch. It is becoming slower by the day, and yet it is a competitive wicket,” he said.
When asked about the form of Chris Gayle, whose form has not been up to the mark this year, Aravind says, “There is not much discussion on him in the dressing room. He is a master batsman. Unfortunately, he is in bad form this year. It is very difficult for a batsman to be in peak form every year. Sometimes, it happens in cricket,” he said.
