IPL 2017: Dejected Virat Kohli says 2-3 players can't deliver every time as RCB head for exit

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli on Thursday said the same two-three players can't win games for the team matches every time. Kohli added that his side needed to play positive cricket to emerge out of their losing streak after they suffered yet another loss in the Indian Premier League in Bengaluru.

RCB suffered another humiliating defeat, this time at the hands of Suresh Raina's Gujarat Lions, who notched up a seven-wicket win with 6.1 overs to spare to revive their IPL play-off hopes.

It was the sixth loss in nine matches for RCB, who were bundled out for 134 by the visitors.

"It is never easy to lose games. Tonight was not clinical. We need to get better with our performances. You got to come out and play with intent," Kohli said after the match.

"We tried to do it with the bat. The only way to come out of it is to play positive cricket. We are putting too much pressure on the team. Individuals need to stand up and take responsibility. It should not be the same two-three guys performing all the time," Kohli added.

"The ball was coming on decently well. Both the innings under lights the ball behaves the same."

The RCB skipper also praised Aaron Finch, who blasted a 34-ball 72 while chasing 135 to win.

"Credit to Finch he played a fantastic knock. In a small chase it is important if one guys takes the momentum."
