MI v/s RCB
Yesterday's match sure was a tense situation, but even though we lost the match it still left me proud of our team RCB.
RCB lost out to MI by just 2 runs and what hurt the most yesterday was that we were just that close from winning, but yet it seemed so far after we lost.
Although we should have been sad with the loss, I am not so depressed and neither are most RCB fans. Reasons being:
1. Mumbai Indians having won this match against us, have not qualified to the semis
2. RCB still has a chance to qualify to the semis, awaiting our Tuesday's match against the Highveld Lions to know where we stand.
3. Even having lost the match, we still stand at position #2 on the points table with our run rate practically un-affected.
This brings us to the conclusion that RCB did not lose in such a bad way. We put up a great fight all through, kept the runs tight in the beginning of the game, although Tiwary did take a few more runs that RCB should have let him.
When it was RCB's turn to bowl, we started on a slower pace that we should have but Virat's shots against furious Malinga's bowling sure raised the bar at RCB's performance.
What RCB lived upto was the motto "Even More.. Game for Life".. standing through the match right until the end, fighting right until the last ball.
Highveld Lions will bring us victory, visualize it fans, it should happen! :)
