After the loss against RR Faf du Plessis, Points Out Reason

After losing the eliminator match of the Indian Premier League season 2024, the captain of Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Faf du Plessis, feels that his team needed to score a few more runs to make it a competitive total. However, he praised his team for fighting till the end against Rajasthan Royals in the knockout match.
Faf du Plessis said in a post-match presentation, “With the dew coming, we felt we were short with the bat. I thought we were 20 runs shy of a good score. Credit goes to the boys; they fought really well. That’s all you can ask for. If you look at naturally assessing the pitch and conditions, you would say it’s a 180 pitch because it was swinging upfront and was quite slow.”
He further added, “To come back like that, six games in a row, takes a lot of heart and character. We weren’t special tonight in terms of pushing those extra 20 runs with the bat.”
