Virat Kohli, the Royal Challenger Bangalore captain, is absolutely gutted with his bowlers for failing him again. He has been heard being very critical of his bowling unit as they couldn't defend the substantial looking 205 versus the rampaging Chennai Super Kings. Royal Challengers Bangalore lost for the fourth time in six matches so far, last night. 

Virat, after the defeat, was quoted saying at the post-match press conference, "The way we bowled was just not acceptable; giving away that many runs, in the end, was criminal. It is something we need to look at and address going forward,"  

"If we can't defend 200 then it's a problem. After 74/4, when the lower-middle order does that to you, that's something we have to take a look at."

He has come out in appreciation of the magnificent innings from MS Dhoni, as well. Dhoni scored a magic knock of 70* from just 34 balls. Kohli talked about this and said, "He is hitting the ball really well this IPL but not great to see it against us."

 Kohli though still continues to back his bowlers and think they will comeback gaining experiences from games like last night and execute their plans better.

He said, "We have to back the guys and show enough confidence in them and they need to be clear in their head to execute things," 

Chennai are now on top of the IPL points table whereas RCB are at the sixth position.CSK next plays Mumbai Indians and RCB plays Kolkata Knight Riders.
