After the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli has announced that he will step down as captain of the T20 format. Meanwhile, it is now rumored that Virat Kohli may step down as captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore after the 14th season of the IPL.
If RCB does not win the IPL title this year too, the chances of Kohli stepping down as captain will be even higher. In this regard, a BCCI official has hinted at moving forward with Kohli’s captaincy of the RCB.
“Leaving the captaincy of the Indian team does not manage the workload,” the official said. He said that captaining the IPL is not an easy task. As the tournament progresses, it becomes more and more difficult.
Let it be known that Kohli has a very bad record for RCB as a captain. He has been captaining since 2013, but the RCB team has never won the tournament. It is to be mentioned that after 2016, the RCB team had qualified for the playoffs last year.
It is to be noted that the 2016 tournament was a great one for Kohli. Kohli had scored 973 runs during that time. Since then, Kohli has crossed the 500 mark in the 2018 tournament alone. If we talk about the year 2021 i.e. the current season, then their average is 33, which includes their half century.
