Virat Kohli was understandably disappointed after Royal Challengers Bangalore crashed to a 118-run defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2019 Indian Premier League. RCB have now lost all their three matches this season and sit bottom of the table.
Jonny Bairstow (114) and David Warner (100 not out) added a record 185 for the opening wicket as Sunrisers Hyderabad set RCB a massive 232. Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers had to lead the charge for Bangalore but when both men were dismissed before the 7th over had been bowled out, it was end-game for RCB.
At one stage, RCB were in danger of crashing to the worst ever defeat in IPL history.
Royal Challengers Bangalore had reached the final in 2016 on the back of Virat Kohli’s record-breaking 973 runs and some magic from AB de Villiers. The team struggled in 2017 and 2018 and this year, things have just continued to go downhill.
Virat Kohli, on Sunday, conceded RCB were outplayed in all departments of the game. Sunrisers Hyderabad batted much better and Mohammad Nabi’s spell of 4 overs where he snared 4 for 11, rattled the Royal Challengers completely.
“(It was) probably our worst loss ever,” Kohli told the broadcasters after the match. “Difficult one to explain. We were outplayed in all departments by a quality side.
“This showed why they are former champions and finalists. We could have tried different things, like bouncers. They batted really well once they got in,” he said.
As soon as the brutal loss, the official twitter handle of RCB posted a tweet saying “113 all out. Lots to ponder about, lots to work on.. Now is when the road gets tougher, but also when the Bold should get going. #VIVOIPL2019 #SRHvRCB”

Enough of enough.! No kannadigas in team.! Look at them performing, karnataka is a place of champions, but sadly no one in team.! Remove the players who underperform irrespective of their big name.!

The only way “RCB” can LIFT the trophy is to change their name to “JCB” ..
One has to feel for @imVkohli though..
