Indian cricket team captain(Virat Kohli) has announced to leave the captaincy of this format after the T20 World Cup. He will retain the captaincy of the ODI and Test teams. Now in such a situation, a question is circulating in the cricket corridors whether Kohli will also leave the captaincy of Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL? Or will the franchise think of changing the captain? However, till now Kohli has not given any reaction on the captaincy of RCB.
Virat Kohli could get RCB to win less than 50% matches
Virat Kohli is a big player and his fan following is also very good. At the international level, he may not have won any trophy for Team India in the T20 format, but his winning percentage is quite good. ButI am not like that. In fact, Kohli has been captaining RCB since 2013, but so far he has reached the play-offs, far from winning the trophy to the team.
Not only this, his winning percentage is also less than 50. Virat Kohli has won 60 matches since 2013 and the team has lost 65. With this, Kohli’s win percentage is only 48.04.
Will the franchise change captain?
Now that Virat has given up the captaincy of Team India’s T20 format and seeing his poor record as captain in IPL, it is looking difficult for him to continue as captain. Although it cannot be ignored that RCB may not have won the Kohli trophy, but the franchise has shown faith in him.
Although IPL 2021 could be Kohli’s last chance. Next year 10 teams will enter the tournament. There will be a mega auction and if this time also Bangalore does not win the title, then the Bangalore based team can think of changing the captain.
RCB will have to do well in IPL 2021
The UAE leg of IPL 2021 is starting from 19th September. Virat Kohli’s team will take on Kolkata Knight Riders on 20 September. In the initial phase played in India, RCB showed a great game. The team played 7 matches, winning 5 matches and losing 2 matches. With 10 points, the franchise is at the third position in the points table. Now Virat’s bold army will take to the field with the goal of winning their first trophy.
