"It is because of the competition. CSK vs MI and also for RCB and MI. We are coming back and they are eager to see the yellow jersey. When I was in the dressing room, I was thinking the quantum of losing should not big. If there is a chance to win, win. But if you lose, the margin should not be big. Good to see Bravo take the responsibilty. I don't think we batted well as a team.

"The kind of player we have, they are more like horses for courses. We have to keep an eye on players who are injury prone and going into the playoffs we need to keep an eye. If we qualify for playoffs, it will be here and there contribution from players."
