AB de Villers, the Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman, has stated that he feels RCB has a great chance of making it to the playoffs in the ongoing Indian Premier League season. RCB are languishing in the bottom half of the IPL points table, at the fifth position having won just 3 of their 8 games with the innate bowling issues to ponder upon but De Villers has faith.
RCB won a very crucial encounter against the Mumbai Indians recently by 14 runs and he was quoted saying about the game that, “I thought we took a lot of learning out of those games (which I missed). Especially after the first one which we lost against Kolkata where I think we realised as a team that we are batting and bowling really well and we let ourselves down in the field,”
He further said, “We have found our rhythm and our self-belief now as the fielding came together against Mumbai and we pulled off a fantastic win and that too after losing the toss. Self-belief played a pretty big part on the slow wicket. So I am very very positive with us moving forward and I know we have to win 5 out of 6 to make it to the playoffs but we do have the belief now that it is possible,”
RCB will next play Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Saturday at MCA International Stadium in Pune.
