Royal Challengers Bengaluru endured another tough night on the field as they suffered a 28-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday. This is RCB's third defeat in the fourth match and it is stuck at ninth place in the points table. Invited to bat first, LSG posted a total of 181/5 in 20 overs with the help of Quinton de Kock's 81 off 56 balls. Later, the hosts faltered in the chase and were all out for 153 runs. Mahipal Lomror was the only batsman in the RCB line-up to cross the 30-run mark.

Talking about RCB's flop show, former India batsman Manoj Tiwary said that Faf du Plessis and Co. are missing the stalwart AB de Villiers due to the failure of the middle order.

“They should have chased this target. I think the absence of AB de Villiers is hurting them now. All-rounder Cameron Green is an emerging player who has been performing very well for Australia but failed to perform for RCB. However, he scored runs in the last match. Rajat Patidar was sent to bat at number three and Green, who performed well in the last match, was not sent. And Glenn Maxwell was also another flop player. If you check his IPL stats, he is a great performer. If you are not giving match-winning performances in all 14 matches, at least perform well in 7-8 matches,” Tiwary told Cricbuzz. But said.

Former India batsman Virender Sehwag, who was also part of the discussion, reacted to Tiwary's statement and said, “7-8? Even Virat Kohli can't produce a match-winning performance in 7-8 matches.” .Every team expects it to be expensive.” Players will have to play big innings in at least 2-3 matches. If a player can make the team win in 2-3 matches then it is a big achievement.

“A player needs to perform well consistently, like 100 runs in one game, 80 runs in another and so on. Making the team win in 7-8 matches, this can be possible only in a year, IPL Not in. In 17 years of IPL, I have never seen any player playing 7-8 match-winning innings for his team.”

Talking about the match, LSG were put to bat and managed to post an impressive score of 181/5 after De Kock's inning of 81 runs in 56 balls.

In reply, RCB struggled to build meaningful partnerships which led to their collapse as the hosts lost by 28 runs.

With two wins from three matches, LSG will face 2022 champions Gujarat Titans on Sunday while RCB will take on Rajasthan Royals on Saturday.
