A run off Dane Christian’s ball from Shakib Al Hasan’s bat and with it the hearts of millions of RCB fans were also shattered. Virat Kohli’s dream of making Royal Challengers Bangalore champion as captain also remained unfulfilled. In the eliminator match, Kohli put his efforts to win with the bat and then the fielding, but it seemed as if the victory was already written in favor of Kolkata Knight Riders. In the next IPL too, Virat will come on the field, but Kohli, who celebrates more than the bowler when he sets the field and gets the wicket, may not be visible to you anymore. Kohli may not have won the IPL title for Bangalore, but in the red jersey, this player made many explosive performances for RCB. Let us tell you how was the performance of Bangalore under the captaincy of Kohli and what achievements Virat did in his name.
Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli captained in 140 matches, out of which the team won 66, while the team had to face defeat in 70. In the year 2016, under the captaincy of Virat, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team reached the final, but in the final, Hyderabad came in the way of Kohli and the trophy. Like this year, last season too, the team made it to the playoffs under the leadership of Kohli, but there too the team had to face defeat in the Eliminator match. As a batsman with captaincy, Virat achieved a lot in Bangalore jersey. While playing for RCB, Kohli scored 42 fifties in IPL and also scored 5 centuries. Not only this, the record of scoring the most runs in a season is also in the name of Virat, which no batsman has been able to break till date.

Virat Kohli is the only batsman to score more than 6 thousand runs in IPL and he has scored all these runs while playing for Bangalore. Virat is also second only to Chris Gayle in terms of most centuries in IPL. At the same time, Kohli is still at number three after David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan in scoring the most fifties. That is, these figures are enough to clearly state that Virat always gave his best for Bangalore as a captain and player, just maybe luck got angry with him at a crucial time.
