"Could've Restricted Them To 150": DC Skipper Axar Patel After Conceding Loss Against RCB

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India]: Following his side's 47-run defeat against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 on Sunday, Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Axar Patel said they could have restricted their opponents to 150 in the first inning.

Axar was the only stand-out batter among his teammates, he scored 57 runs from 39 balls at a strike rate of 146.15. He hammered 5 fours and 3 sixes while batting in the second inning.

Speaking after the match, Axar said misfielding hurt them during the match against RCB. He added 160-170 runs could have been the par score.

"Dropped catches hurt us. Could've restricted them to 150. When you lose four wickets in powerplay, you're always chasing the game. 160-170 would've been a par score. Pitch was two-paced. Some were skidding, some were holding. When your main players are run out and you lose four in powerplay, you're chasing the game. Anything can happen, but haven't thought that far ahead," Axar said.
