Akshar Patel said after the match, ‘We suffered loss due to dropping the catch. They (RCB) could have been restricted to 150 runs. Our batting also had a bad start. When you lose four wickets in the powerplay, you are always chasing in the match.

Akshar Patel said, ‘Some balls were coming out fast from the pitch and some were coming haltingly. But the target of 160-170 runs could still be achieved. But when your main players get run out and you lose four in the powerplay, it becomes difficult.
