Dubai: The irregular shape of Yuzvendra Chahal of Royal Challengers Bangalore is not a major concern of their coach, Australian Simon Katchish, who said that the venue for the roundabout in the team “was not under the scanner” after the team lost 34 rounds to the Punjab Kings. .

The 30-year-old forward conceded 34 runs in four runs, and only made one small gate on Friday.

“I wouldn’t say that his place is under the scanner,” Katish said. “I think Punjab throwing much longer distances than we did. In terms of the way the wicket is played, it definitely seems to be getting slower and slower as the game goes on. We got away a little bit, but Yozi (Shahal) fought back well after a slow start. But it’s never easy to play a role Catch up when you get hit the first time. “

RCB has only lost two games so far in this IPL edition but in both games, they are totally outdone. When asked if the net run rate is being focused on while planning and implementing strategies, Katish said, “Our net run rate was affected today, but Punjab, I think, played conditions better. They evaluated the situation well with the bats and got a total. Very good. Obviously we lost our way in the middle of the innings and maybe we left (rate) running a little late. “

Katsich admitted that PBKS’s KL Rahul (91 *) was outperforming at the top of the ranking. “He organized them into 180 solo rides which ultimately was higher than that wicket since it was only the second time it was used. It was also used last night.”

With the next match against the Kolkata Knight Riders on May 3, Katish said, “One of the things RCB is good at is bouncing, so expect a good show from us when we play the next KKR.”

In the two matches RCB has lost so far, its net has conceded far too many kicks in the last few times. Asked if it was affecting team morale, Katish said, “We took it up when it happened in Mumbai (against CSK). We’ll tackle this (loss to PBKS) in the review once the dust settles. We’ve learned a lot after the CSK match in Mumbai.” We expect the same after today’s loss, and we will come back strongly against KKR. “
