Virat Kohli is the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. After the team’s elimination from the Eliminator on Monday, Michael Vaughan shared his thoughts on Kohli’s captaincy.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli failed to win the Indian Premier League (IPL) trophy in his final season. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were defeated by four wickets by the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2021 Eliminator on Monday. However, despite Kohli’s unbeaten 39 off 33 balls, RCB could only manage 138/7 in 20 overs. With help from Sunil Narine, KKR amassed a 139-run total in just 19.4 overs! Kohli “fell a long way short” as RCB captain, according to ex-England captain Michael Vaughan, after the game.
Vaughan told Cricbuzz after the game: “There will be no glory for him as a captain in the IPL because he failed to win. When you’re at the level of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli, you know high-level sport is all about getting over the line and winning trophies. I’m not saying he is, but because he is such a driven player and person, he will view himself as a failure in IPL captaincy if he doesn’t hold the trophy “He made the statement that
“Virat’s work with the Indian Test team, Test match cricket, and developing the team is fantastic. When it comes to one-day and Twenty20 cricket, you have to admit that he has fallen far short of expectations with both the national team and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.”
For Vaughan, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team was well-prepared for the upcoming Indian Premier League in 2021.
“With regard to both talent and squads, he has access to some of the best in the business. As a result, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team is very top-heavy in the batting order. They had the batting to match their bowling this year, but they fell short with Maxwell, Harshal Patel, and Yuzi Chahal “, he asserted with a sly grin.
T20 World Cup, which begins on October 17 in the UAE and Oman, will be Kohli’s last tournament as captain of Team India.
