Helplessness was palpable when Virat Kohli spoke after his side’s suffered a sixth straight defeat this IPL season against Delhi Capitals here on Sunday.

“We thought 160 would be competitive, but we kept losing wickets at regular intervals, so I wanted to take the game deep. Even 150, had we held on to our chances, would’ve been difficult for them. We need to grab those chances, can’t give excuses every day,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation ceremony.

“We just weren’t good on the given day. That’s the whole story of RCB this season,” he said in dejection.

Talking about poor fielding of his side which has now dropped 15 catch chances, Kohli hinted pressure is playing in players’ mind. “When the mind is cluttered, you wouldn’t be able to focus on the chances that come your way. When you have clarity, you can take your chances better.”
