Virat Kohli Timing On RCB Captaincy: The timing of the announcement of Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after IPL 2021 has been questioned by many former players. Former players say that he could have announced this even after IPL. Three days ago, Kohli had said that he would step down as the captain of the Indian team’s T20 format after the ICC T20 World Cup.
Let us tell you that Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world. Under his leadership, Team India has performed brilliantly not only in the country but also on foreign soil. Virat Kohli on Sunday took to the official Twitter handle of Royal Challengers Bangalore to announce his retirement from the captaincy of RCB after IPL 2021, leaving the former players stunned.
Former player Gautam Gambhir told Star Sports, “I am quite surprised by his decision. Kohli should not have taken this decision at this time. It will not help the team in any way. Could leave after that because his decision will affect the team.
Former player Sanjay Manjrekar told ESPNcricinfo, “I am excited to know why Kohli took the decision of quitting captaincy ahead of tournaments.” Let us tell you that Kohli took over the captaincy of RCB in 2013. But he has not been able to win the team the trophy even once. Although he has scored a lot of runs for the team with the bat. Even before this, questions have been raised about Bangalore not winning the IPL trophy even once under his captaincy.
