Virat Kohli has announced to quit the captaincy of this team for an official video released by RCB and has made it clear that he will not be the captain of this team in the next season. Now next year IPL mega auction is also going to happen, so the question in everyones mind is whether Virat Kohli will continue to play for RCB or not. He has also given the answer in this video and said that he will remain associated with this team only. He said that as a batsman he would never leave this team.
Virat Kohli said in the released video that he has taken the decision to quit the captaincy of the team after talking to the team management and the players. He said that earlier I also left the captaincy of the Indian T20 team and now this decision has been taken to manage the workload. Virat said that RCB is also in a phase of change as a mega auction is about to happen and I have made it clear to the team management that I will not play for any other team and I have this commitment with RCB from day one. I will be associated with this team till I play the last match of IPL.
Kohli said that I captained this team for 9 years and during this, there were many ups and downs. He said that I thank everyone for the way the fans supported me as a captain. On the other hand, on Kohlis decision to step down from the captaincy, the RCB chairman said that Virat Kohli is one of the wonderful cricketers and he has been a great asset to RCB. His working style and leadership skills are amazing. We respect his decision and I thank him for his tremendous contribution. He has made his mark on the franchise and will continue as a senior player in the team.
