RCB’s poor performance continues year after year under Kohli’s captaincy
Significantly, in international cricket, Virat Kohli, who made the Indian cricket team (Team India) the top team with his captaincy, is proving to be the worst in the IPL as a captain. Actually, on the basis of statistics, Kohli has not been able to show anything special from the captaincy for RCB.
The year 2013 was the year when Virat Kohli took over the command of Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB ranked fifth that season. In 2014, Bangalore finished 7th and in the following season, the team came back to name third position.
The only year 2016 was the year when the Bangalore team led by Kohli played the only IPL final. After that, the Royal Challengers were ranked 8th, 6th and 8th respectively in 2017, 2018, 2019. So this season, RCB’s team had to be satisfied with the number four position.
Virat also flopped with the bat in the playoffs
Virat Kohli, the most successful batsman of the IPL, looks very simple in the tournament’s playoff matches. Under which he was dismissed for just 6 runs in front of Hyderabad in the IPL 13 eliminator. Apart from this, if we look at Virat’s batting record in all the IPL playoff matches.
Kohli has played 11 innings in playoff matches so far. In which Virat Kohli has scored a total of 237 runs at an average of 26.33 and a modest strike rate of 124.08. During this time Kohli’s best score has been 70 not out, which came in the first qualifier of IPL 2011. In such a situation, Virat Kohli’s unintended record of this poor performance in the playoffs has been recorded.
