Virat Kohli stepping down as the Captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore at the end of IPL 2021.
Recently, Virat Kohli announced that he will step down as the Captain of T20 after the T20 world cup in Dubai, October. He announced this on his official instagram account saying “Understanding workload is a very important thing and considering my immense workload over the last 8-9 years playing all 3 formats and captaining regularly for last 5-6 years, I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian Team in Test and ODI Cricket. I have given everything to the Team during my time as T20 Captain and I will continue to do so for the T20 Team as a batsman moving forward.”
And now on 19 September it has been announced that he’ll step down as the Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain.
“This will be my last IPL as captain of RCB. I’ll continue to be an RCB player till I play my last IPL game. I thank all the RCB fans for believing in me and supporting me.” Virat Kohli said. He is the first batsman to score 600 runs in IPL. The team only played the finals once under his captaincy but never won. He holds the world record for being the fastest batsman to 8,000, 9,000, 10,000, 11,000 and 12,000 runs in ODI cricket. … Among Indian batsmen, Kohli has the best ever Test rating (937 points), ODI rating (911 points) and T20I rating (897 points).
It’ll be a heartbreaking change for the fans as he was one of the best captain.
