Bengaluru, May 2 (CRICKETNMORE) - Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) pulled off an excellent bowling performance to defeat Mumbai Indians by 14 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) clash at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium here on Tuesday.
Captain Virat Kohli was very happy with the teams performance and gave credit to the bowlers. During the presentation ceremony he said, "Very important win at such an important stage of the tournament. In the last couple of games, we were picking up. Tonight was an occasion we need that two points. This is the push we needed. We might have spoken about too many things in the past. To the bowlers, we said, 'back your gut feel to bowl yorkers, take your fields.' To confuse them, doesn't help too much. Everyone bowled really well. Umesh's over. Colin's over with the bat. The one over that JP bowled and Manan targeted, that was game-changing. Manan took the game away from them. We needed impact performances to get those two points. We had good intent, results are around the corner. The result went our way. We should take this confidence forward.
"My wife is here and it's her birthday. This was a little gift for her. It was very important to achieve this two points in front of her."he added.
