Yuvraj and Kohli give RCB an easy win


When you drop two catches in the same over of Virat Kohli, and that too when he is chasing a target, you should have no hopes to win a cricket game weather it is a one day game or a T20 game. DD made the same mistake last night when Kohli was in the 20s and that sealed the match in favor of RCB. Apart from this DD made some tactical mistakes as well. When Shami was troubling Yuvraj they withdraw him. Same was done by RCB too when they bowled but they won the game so such mistakes would not be highlighted.
