RCB will come hard at us, need to be alert: Chawla

Bengaluru: Though Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have lost their opening four games and are lying at rock-bottom in the points table, the firepower they have in their tank means Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will have to put their best foot forward to beat them here on Friday, feels senior spinner Piyush Chawla.

“We all know what type of a game RCB has got and four games down doesn’t mean that they are down and out,” Chawla told reporters on the eve of their match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

“We know the quality of players they have, they are going to bounce back. They will come even more hard at us. We have to prepare in that way and play some good cricket to beat them,” the 30-year old leg-spinner said.

RCB are yet to win a match this season with the likes of skipper Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers failing to deliver. In their last game against fellow laggards Rajasthan Royals, RCB were guilty of dropping numerous catches which proved to be their bane at the end.
