#IPL2022: Faf du Plessis says THIS after losing to CSK by 23 runs

News

Mumbai: Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Ravindra Jadeja-led Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs after spectacular performances by the opposition team in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2022.

“First of all our 7-8 overs were good. Then 8-14 we tried to bring the spinners on and they played really well. Dube taking on the spinners, they took the momentum they carried from 8-14. That partnership speaks for itself. When you are chasing a big score you have to have a good start. One of the first four setting up the foundation, we didn’t have that tonight. Good bowling from Chennai, they used their spinners well on a pitch that had some grip,” said Faf du Plessis after the game.

“We lost momentum with wickets, but we came back well. That shows the depth in our batting. Just shows you when you play a match like tonight. You see the value he (Harshal) offers not just to this team but any team. He has got the ability to really stop the game. We missed that tonight. Even towards the end we lacked the variety. Big miss for us, hopefully we will have him back soon again. Impressed by the way the guys coming in on a debut at 5 or 6 and playing like that just shows depth in our bowling. Even though we lost we were only 20 runs short on a total we should have been blown out of order and that is impressive,” he added.
