Virat Kohli is the captain of RCB in IPL 2020. RCB has declared they are not going to change their team captain and Virat Kohli will again lead RCB in IPL season 13.
Virat Kohli Performance as RCB Captain:
RCB’s performance in past IPL season is very disappointing, in the last season they didn’t even make their way in playoffs and everyone talk about Virat Kohli’s captaincy after it.
Virat has captained RCB in 7 IPL seasons from the year 2013 to 2019. RCB came in final of IPL only once in IPL 2016 in which match they lost by 8 runs against SRH.
After 2016, RCB didn’t even come in playoffs and that was really disappointing for the RCB fans as they don’t expect it from such a strong team having big names like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
But what I say is its not his captaincy that RCB showing poor performance in Indian Premier League, as you can see Virat Kohli is also leading Indian International cricket team and in recent times he has won big series for team India and now he became one of successful Indian team captain.
Not only your captain but It’s also your team and all coaches, who make you win a match and whole tournament, alone captain can’t win you the tournament. A captain can only guide his team in the right direction.
I think its all about RCB team combination in which they are lack somewhere, they need to focus on this in IPL 2020. There is no doubt about Virat’s captaincy.
