RCB’s start to the maiden edition of the campaign has been a rocky one as their bowlers are still to reach their full potential with just 3 wickets from 2 games. Their batters did fight tooth and nail to try and post a significant number on the cards but once again lack of wickets for the bowlers allowed Mumbai Indians to run away with the fixture.
However, Smriti Mandhana was happy at the fact that the numbers were coming from the bat but was clear about this too that they wanted to change their mindset when it comes to their bowling. She also had a crucial message for the ones who ply their trade in franchise cricket.
Talking at the post-match presentation, Smriti said, “We would have loved to put up a better performance. We were below par. Will come back harder. There were two-three batters getting 20-30 runs, a few batters including me couldn’t put up a good score. We will sit and talk and try to come up with a better performance.”
She shifted her focus towards the bowlers, adding, “We had six-seven good bowlers. As batters we need to put up a good total on board. It’s a pretty short tournament, we can’t dwell on it. In Franchise cricket, even after two losses we can turn it around quickly. Lots of positives in Kanika and Shreyanka. Really positive to see the way they performed, happy with the way they batted.”
RCB Women returns to action in the same venue against the Gujarat Giants as they are slated to play tomorrow in their third fixture kickstarting from 7:30 PM.
