Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said that his bowlers did a good job while restricting Royal Challengers Bangalore to 173/8 but the batters failed to capitalize on that as they suffered a 13-run defeat.
The defending champions are now on the brink of elimination with just three wins out of 10 matches. It was a collective performance from RCB bowlers as they kept putting pressure on the CSK batters by taking wickets at regular intervals.
“We did well to restrict them to 170-odd runs. I felt in the later half it (the surface) could be better and we had to get off to a good start, everything was up to the mark and what let us down was the batsmanship,” Dhoni said at the post-match presentation.
