The skipper heaped praising on his players, especially bowlers, for defending a total below 170. He said the bowlers “showed a lot of character” and stuck to the plan despite dew on the field because of which they were finding it difficult to grip the ball.

"The fact that we won defending a total, which was not even 170, was not something we have done in the past,” he added.

Kohli, citing the Delhi Capitals vs Kings XI Punjab match, stated that it was difficult for bowlers to grip the ball in the end in that fixture. So, in view of the conditions, the RCB skipper asserted that his bowlers performed well.
