Royal Challengers Bangalore are at the bottom of the table in the 2017 Indian Premier League, having lost four out of five matches.

“If we play like this, we don’t deserve to win. The last game, we fought hard. Today we let the game go away right in front of our eyes. We have a few things to address. We can’t think we can sweep sides away at home,” said Kohli at the post-match ceremony.

Kohli reminded his team that they have a responsibility towards franchise and the fans.

“Last year, we had to win four out of four to qualify but that can’t happen every time. As professional cricketers, you’re playing for a franchise, you are playing in front of a lot of people, we can’t keep doing this. Hopefully, we can turn things around and the players can take the responsibility.”
