Virat Kohli to step down as Royal Challengers Bangalore captain after IPL 2021

Kohli,
one
of
the
most
decorated
players
of
the
franchise,
will
continue
to
be
part
of
the
RCB
squad,
the
team
management
said
in
a
media
release.

Prathmesh
Mishra,
Chairman,
RCB
said,
“Virat
Kohli
is
one
of
the
finest
cricketers,
and
has
been
a
true
asset
to
the
RCB.
His
impeccable
work
ethics
and
leadership
skills
has
been
phenomenal.

“We
respect
and
support
this
decision
and
would
like
to
thank
Virat
for
his
incredible
contribution
to
the
RCB
leadership
group.
He
has
left
an
indelible
mark
on
the
franchise
and
will
continue
to
be
a
senior
member
of
the
team.”

Virat
Kohli,
Captain,
RCB
said,
“It
has
been
a
great
and
an
inspiring
journey,
captaining
a
talented
bunch
of
players
in
the
RCB
squad.

I
would
like
to
take
this
opportunity
to
thank
the
RCB
management,
coaches,
support
staff,
players,
and
the
entire
RCB
family,
who
have
been
instrumental
in
the
growth
of
the
franchise
over
the
years.
It
wasn’t
an
easy
decision
but
one
that
has
been
well
thought
of
and
in
the
best
interest
of
this
wonderful
franchise.

The
RCB
family
remains
close
to
my
heart
as
we
continue
to
strive
to
achieve
excellence.
As
I
have
mentioned
previously
in
many
occasions,
I
will
only
play
for
RCB
until
my
retirement
from
the
game
of
cricket,”
he
said.

It
may
be
recalled
that
Kohli
recently
announced
his
decision
to
quit
India’s
T20I
leadership
role
too
after
the
ICC
T20
World
Cup
in
the
UAE
in
October
and
November.

The
decision
of
Kohli
to
resign
from
RCB’s
captaincy
came
a
day
ahead
the
team’s
IPL
2021
match
against
Kolkata
Knight
Riders
on
Monday
(September
20.
Kohli
took
over
RCB
captain
in
2013
but
since
then
has
not
been
able
to
lead
the
side
to
its
maiden
title
in
the
league.
