- Rajasthan Royals have suffered defeat in 4 consecutive matches.
- Steve Smith has given the real reason for the team's consistent defeat
Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith has given a big statement after the defeat against Delhi Capitals in the match played in the IPL on Friday. Steve Smith gave the real reason for the team's defeat. According to him, when the pressure comes, the entire team falls apart and in this way, you cannot win the match.
The Rajasthan Royals bowlers did a good job by stopping Delhi Capitals for 184 runs in Sharjah ground but the batsmen could not take advantage of that. Rajasthan's team could not play even the full 20 overs and were reduced to just 138 runs. However, Steve Smith believes that the team will definitely make a comeback in the coming matches. After the match, he said,
“ We are not playing good cricket for the entire 40 overs. When the pressure comes, the team falls apart and in this way, you cannot win the match. The bowlers did a great job but I don't think the wicket was so good. We gave 10-15 runs extra. However, we have to stay positive and change things. This time things are not going in our favor. “
Steve Smith also stated his batting
Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith also expressed concern about his batting and said that he is not batting well at the moment. Steve Smith said,
“I am not batting well either. I was feeling well today but could not do that kind of batting as I should. Ben Stokes will come out of Quartin tomorrow but he has not practiced much yet. So it will be a matter of whether they can play in the match on Sunday.”
Let us tell you that in the 23rd match of IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals defeated Rajasthan Royals by 46 runs in Sharjah and reached the first position in the points table. Batting first, Delhi Capitals scored 184/8, in response to which Rajasthan Royals could score 138 runs. This is the fourth consecutive defeat of the Rajasthan Royals.
