They haven't got a chance yet because <a href="/tags/Virat-Kohli/post" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> and <a href="/tags/AB-de-Villiers/post" target="_blank">AB de Villiers</a> are performing well. Our batting has not really gone down to the tail. They are ready and waiting for the opportunity," Ramapul told reporters.<br /> <br /> Replying to a query, Rampaul said the team's execution at death overs was dismal and they need to work on it.<br /> <br /> "Once we get that right, all our performances will be lifted. I am comfortable bowling at all times of the innings. Whatever the captain and the bowler decide, the execution is the key. There are a lot of games coming up and so there are lot of opportunities," he said.<br /> <br /> Rampaul said the Bangalore wicket has always helped the bowlers and he always try to put his best foot forward.<br /> <br /> The West Indian pacer said the RCB need to quickly put their defeat against <a href="/tags/Chennai-Super-Kings/post" target="_blank">Chennai Super Kings</a> in the last game behind.<br /> <br /> "It's tough that two of our matches went to the last over and one turned out to be a Super Over. That's how cricket goes. We have to go back to the drawing board and decide what we have to do," he said.<br /> <br /> On his encouraging performance against Chennai, Rampaul said he just made use of the opportunity to get three wickets but at the end of the day, the team did not win.<br /> <br /> "Hence it doesn't matter how well I did. We have to continue playing as a team and keep our heads held high," he said.
