New Delhi: The wicket at the Ferozeshah Kotla again hogged the limelight for wrong reasons with Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Anil Kumble saying that the pitch was "not ideal" for Twenty20 matches.
Kumble, the losing team's captain, said that the toss play a crucial role here.
"Toss is very crucial on such a track. I think 185 was too much for us to chase in this kind of wicket. It is not the ideal wicket for Twenty20," Kumble said his team's loss to Daredevils by 37 runs.
The wicket was slow and low with bit of a turn and certainly not conducive to shot making. It became more difficult for the team batting second to score runs.

It was Daredevils' third straight victory at home here. They were lucky to win the toss in all the three occasion and put up the par total of 180-plus and the bowlers did the rest to defend the total.
