'Virat was struggling to hit the ball...' - Captain Faf du Plessis talks about the pitch post-match against KKR

The M. Chinnaswamy stadium's pitch is known as a batting paradise and a threat for bowlers. However, in the recent match between RCB and KKR, while the first six overs were great, the next 14 overs became a bit difficult for the batters. At the post-match presentation, RCB's captain Faf du Plessis talked about the nature of the pitch and how it kept on changing so much that even  Virat Kohli was struggling. 

"In the first innings, we thought that the wicket was very two-paced, you could see that when the guys bowled the cutters, back of a length, the guys struggled. We thought it was a decent score knowing that it gets a little bit easier in the evening, there was a little bit of dew that came in. Looking at the way we batted in the first innings, Virat was struggling to hit the ball just because there was lack of pace and the two-paceness," said Du Plessis at the post-match presentation.
