‘We were making the same mistakes…’: Skipper Faf du Plessis after RCB’s fourth consecutive win | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Skipper Faf du Plessis expressed concerns despite Royal Challengers Bengaluru‘s fourth consecutive win. He acknowledged that the team was repeating errors.
Du Plessis emphasised the need for improvement and learning from these mistakes. The captain’s focus is on enhancing team performance for future matches.
Virat Kohli‘s spectacular 92 off 47 deliveries, combined with a united bowling performance, propelled RCB to a commanding 60-run victory over Punjab Kings at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala on Thursday.
This crucial win keeps RCB’s playoff aspirations alive, marking their fourth successive triumph. Unfortunately, Punjab Kings now joins Mumbai Indians as the second team to be eliminated from the tournament.
RCB’s victory streak does not overshadow the importance of correcting recurring issues. The team’s strategy involves addressing these concerns promptly.
“That was a good game. We have scored 200-plus in the last 5-6 games. We have had good conversations, we were making the same mistakes over and over again. Needed aggression with the bat. We just spoke about taking wickets. We have 6-7 options in the bowling department. You need some form in your side,” Du Plessis said after the match.
“With a bit of luck is also required. We had a few guys looking for wickets and runs at the start of the tournament. The boys have shown character to turn it around. Everyone has chipped in with runs and the bowlers are taking wickets. For us it’s important to focus on ourselves.We want to stick to the style of play that we want to do, if we do that it’ll prove we are a really good team,” Du Plessis added.
