The pitch turned out to be a fraud… Faf du Plessis gave the reason for the defeat against KKR

In the 10th match of IPL 2024, Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders. KKR defeated RCB by 7 wickets at their home ground, M Chinnaswamy Stadium. After this defeat, Bengaluru captain Faf du Plessis explained why they suffered a defeat in the game against Kolkata. Du Plessis blamed the pitch for the defeat. According to him, the pitch was fraudulent.

After the game, Faf du Plessis said: “It’s strange, in the first innings we thought it was a two-tier wicket, you could see the boys were struggling as the boys were bowling the cutters behind the length. We knew it would be difficult.” In the evening it was a little easier, we thought it was a good result. A bit of dew came. Looking at the way we batted in the first innings, Virat struggled to hit the ball because there was a lot of pace. There was a shortage and double speed.”

Regarding the poor bowling in the Powerplay, he said: “You can always know after the game that maybe we could have tried one or two things but the way both (Narine and Salt) hit the ball was partly good.” There he struck. He put pressure on our bowlers. He played strong cricket shots and largely took the game with him. With Narine there you can’t go with spin, against him you have to use speed. That’s good for Salt. “The matchup and the way he played. He was brilliant and finished the match in six overs.”

The RCB captain further added, “We tried the spin options with Maxwell, finger spinners are effective here but there wasn’t much spin that night, it’s one of those things with the right and left hand combinations but how You have seen, Venky.” (Venkatesh Iyer) When you play against a right-arm spinner, you feel that it is easier to hit short boundaries with a spinner. Ideally, you want someone who can turn the ball in both directions. “But with today’s roster, we didn’t have anyone like him.”

He further said about Vijaykumar Vaishya, “Very brilliant, he had no chances. We watched the first innings and thought about bringing Karn Sharma. But we thought that someone who can bowl well at slower speeds is probably the best batsman on the pitch. “Will be a difficult bowler. Russell bowled 80 percent of his balls. We learned something from him and he was the best bowler of the night.”
