RCB vs SRH IPL 2021 6th Match Highlights – Apr 14

Warner: Our fielding wasn’t as good as we expected last game, there was a lack of energy. Nadeem comes in for Sandeep Sharma and Jason Holder for Mohammad Nabi.
Kohli: It does look a bit damp and we would’ve gotten into the game with the ball. You need to pick up wickets in the middle overs in Chennai. We had a good game against Mumbai, but not the best game. We just operated 75%, I should’ve batted longer…with the ball, we were brilliant. As a batting unit, we need to set sights on a decent total. When you aim for more, you can be two-three wickets down in quick time. One change: Padikkal in for Patidar. Devdutt will open with me and Shahbaz Ahmed at No.3.

Post Match Presentation.

Kohli: Not as exhausted as I’m proud. It was a top game for us and probably it will get tougher and tougher here. You saw it in KKR vs MI – you’re never really out of the game. Those extra options made an impact on performances in the middle overs. I told them if we’ve struggled to 149, it will be tougher for the opposition.

I truly believed we could win with 150. The wicket was never a belter and tonight our execution under pressure was spot-on. The wicket kept getting tougher and tougher with the old ball. It’s about getting momentum in the first six overs, but for us, Maxi gave us that momentum and got us closer to 150. To be very honest, we’re not over-excited about victories. We have a clear plan and backing our players. Got Harshal from Delhi for a role. It’s a long tournament and you have to be professional with your job.

Maxwell, Player of the Match: It’s a nice start at RCB. They gave me a specific role. To have batters around me gives me time to settle in and play with freedom – similar to the role I play at the Australian team. It’s just sharing our experiences and giving myself time to assess my conditions. Kohli’s good at keeping me on task. Having those guys behind me is a nice little luxury. It’s my fourth IPL team and there’s pressure on me to turn up and make my impact. I’m planning to get my chance at bowling, but Washington Sundar is a superstar.

Thomas: “Maxi’s innings was the difference between the teams – a set batsman who stayed till the end. But Shahbaz had a great day, so I wouldn’t mind him getting MoM”

Warner: A very big bitter pill to swallow. Obviously Maxi batted well, but our bowlers did well to restrict them. Look, it was just about building a partnership…and I was quite disappointed with how we went – cross-batted shots against left-arm orthodox. It just hurts. We have another three games here, the wickets are going to get better here. We need to try to take powerplay wickets and need to have one big partnership in the middle. In the last four games here the team batting second should’ve won the game. Last night’s game was an example and we played an identical game.
