Kohli rues dropped catches after 59-run thrashing

DUBAI: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli rued the dropped catches by his team after a 59-run drubbing at the hands of Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Monday.
All-rounder Marcus Stoinis was dropped on 30 by Yuzvendra Chahal, after which he went on to score a 26-ball 53 and power Delhi to 196 for four at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Kohli himself had dropped KL Rahul twice in RCB’s loss to Kings XI Punjab earlier in the tournament.
“Those important chances in between, we need to grab when the opportunity comes our way. It is not like we are dropping half
chances; we are dropping sitters and those things hurt you,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
“We got into the game after the first six (overs) and then Stoinis batted really well in the end. We gave him a life, he took the game away from us,” he added.
Delhi were off to a flying start with openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan adding 68 runs. The RCB bowlers were able to pull things back, picking up quick wickets before slipping again. —PTI
