Following the game, Faf said during the post-match presentation, "In the last two games, we have shown great signs of fight. SRH game (in Bengaluru) was 270 plus, and we got 260. KKR game as well - (lost by) 1 run. We have been close for a while, but you need to win matches to get confidence as a group. Will sleep easier. You can't speak confidence into the group, cannot fake confidence into the group. The only thing that gives confidence is performance."

"The competition is so strong, the teams are so strong that you will get hurt if you are not at 100 per cent. More guys scoring runs now. First half of the tournament only Virat (Kohli) was scoring runs. Greeny (Cameron Green) scoring runs now will be massive for him. We know that Chinnaswamy has been a big frustration for us. It is a difficult ground to bowl at. We have tried to find a recipe for it, but it is tough," he added.

RCB is at the bottom of the points table with two wins, seven losses, and four points. SRH is in the third spot with five wins, three losses, and 10 points.
