After losing to the Kolkata Knight Riders in the final over in the tight low-scoring eliminator, it was curtains for Royal Challengers Bangalore. It was particularly heartbreaking for many RCB fans because this was also their captain Virat Kohli’s last season as skipper of the side as he had announced to quit captaincy and just continue as a player for the franchise post this season. Kohli has not won a single IPL trophy in his tenure as RCB captain.
Kohli’s sister Bhawna Kohli has put up an emotional message on Instagram about her brother’s tenure as captain of the IPL side. Bhawna’s message talked about Kohli giving his best as captain and taking responsibility in difficult times.
“You gave your best as a captain. You have always held your shoulders high no matter how tough the situation was. You are and will always be a remarkable captain, a name synonym with RCB captaincy. Forever worthy of respect and adulation. Proud of you brother,” wrote Bhawna.
Kohli,in his 9 years as RCB skipper since 2013, despite reaching the playoffs in 4 editions of the mega event, has not managed to win a single IPL season. 2016 was the best year for the Indian Captain when he scored 973 runs with a phenomenal average of 81.08. Bangalore also reached the finals that year.
