Anil Kumble said that though the two low intensity blasts hampered both teams it did not have a bearing on the result of the DLF-IPL match here on Saturday.

“We were warming up when we heard a sound and then we were asked to get back to the dressing room and await further instructions about the security.

“What happened outside the stadium could also happen outside our homes and this has become part of our lives.

“I spoke to the players and we were also told that it was safe. We dropped a few catches, gave 25 extra runs in the field and while batting we struggled for momentum,” the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper said after his team suffered a 57-run defeat against Mumbai Indians.
