A dejected RCB skipper Virat Kohli said his team needs to find a "winning formula" soon or else they don't deserve to win with this kind of performance. This, being the 27-run loss to Rising Pune Supergiant, despite the visitors having posted only 161 in their 20 overs.
RCB has now lost four out of their five games.
"If we play like this, we don't deserve to win. The last game, we fought hard. Today we let the game go away right in front of our eyes. We have a few things to address. We can't think we can sweep sides away at home," said Kohli at the post-match ceremony.
The 27 run victory also saw Pune successfully defend the lowest total in Bangalore against RCB. The loss pushing Virat Kohli to remind his team of the responsibility they have towards franchise and the fans.
"Last year, we had to win four out of four to qualify but that can't happen every time. As professional cricketers, you're playing for a franchise, you are playing in front of a lot of people, we can't keep doing this. Hopefully, we can turn things around and the players can take the responsibility," said the RCB skipper.
