Virat Kohli has come up with an emotional tweet on Twitter congratulating the love and support from the fans as his captaincy reins in RCB colours have come to an end. Kohli would have ideally hoped to have completed his captaincy regime with a title win but it wasn’t meant to be.
Royal Challengers Bangalore lost the Eliminator against KKR in a tough battle and now are out of the tournament. Kohli who has been captaining the RCB since 2013 hasn’t been able to win IPL titles but has made the playoffs four times. He had announced at the start of the UAE phase of IPL 2021 that this will be his last year of captaincy for RCB.
“A Disappointing End But We Can Hold Our Heads High” – Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has tweeted that he would have ideally looked to finish off with a title win but was happy about the way his team had fought. He reckoned that the season had been so good and it wasn’t the best way, he would have liked to end. He finally thanked the RCB management for their support.
“Not the result we wanted but I am so proud of the character shown by the boys throughout the tournament. A disappointing end but we can hold our heads high. Thank you to all the fans, management & support staff for your constant support.@RCBTweets” Virat Kohli tweeted on Twitter

RCB Succumbs To Yet Another Playoffs Loss
RCB has the habit of losing out in crunch situations and they suffered yet another loss against KKR in the eliminator. They could manage just 138 on the board in their first inning and their bowling resources weren’t able to defend the score. RCB lost the eliminator last year too in UAE and it will be interesting to see their retentions for next year.
Virat Kohli is the only player to have played for the same franchise in all IPL editions so far.
