After losing a thrilling IPL 2019 Eliminator to Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson rued the team’s inability to close out games through the season. Williamson said the team’s failure to capitalise on crucial moments through the tournament was the reason for their exit.
“In contrast to last season, I think we would have had four or five matches very very close and we were on the right side of those results,” he said on Wednesday (May 8). “This year we’ve been in similar positions – Super Overs, times like today, once again we have had those four or five matches but we’ve not been on the right side of the results. I guess if you’re looking back, there were some frustrating moments, but also some positives as every game we were in with a chance to win.

“To qualify with six wins doesn’t look pretty, but it’s what it is. It’s a bit frustrating when the margin is so small, and we were on the losing side of so many of those margins. Even the last three matches we played there were some solid performances but we were nipped in the bud right towards the end. Some learning for the squad for the next year, but it’s disappointing.”

The filmmaker is indeed mocking Royal Challengers Bangalore who are failing win a trophy in all the seasons they played. Vijay Mallya owned the team once and The RCB franchise is now wholly owned subsidiary of United Spirits Limited (USL), of which Mallya had been chairman and non-executive director, till he resigned from his post on February 25. He also resigned from his position as a director of Royal Challengers Sports Private Limited (RCSPL), thus effectively relinquishing control over his team.
