Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has said his team was 10-15 runs short of what would have been a match-winning total in their IPL game against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur.

"Another loss unfortunately. We were 10-15 runs short. Rajasthan batted really well. I got out at the wrong time, one batsman who could have added another 20-30 runs could have changed things," Kohli said after his side lost by four wickets. 

 "We got really excited looking at the wicket, didn't bowl at a good length. We bowled really short initially and gave many boundaries," he added.

Talking about the match, Dravid said, "We were on the back foot in the first six overs, with (Chris) Gayle going the way he did.

"The way we batted in the first six, and the way Sanju (Samson) batted, we just seemed in control right through. 

"With 13 in two overs, I thought it was going to comfortable."
