Virat has been the captain of RCB for the last 8 years and has yet to win an IPL title.
New Delhi, November 08: The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), led by Virat Kohli, have once again shattered their dream of winning the IPL 2020. Virat has been the captain of RCB for the last 8 years and has yet to win an IPL title. RCB’s team had advanced to the playoffs this year, but lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the eliminator, after which Virat Kohli was criticized by the veterans for his captaincy. Gautam Gambhir asked Virat to resign as captain. However, India’s veteran opener Virender Sehwag has sided with Virat. What will Sehwag do as a lone captain? Asking that, RCB said that there is a need to change the team, not the captain.
In an interview to cricket website Cricketbuzz after RCB’s defeat, Sehwag said, “Bangalore’s team depends only on the batting of Virat and AB. No matter how good the captain is, nothing can happen if the team is not good. When Virat is the captain of the Indian team, the results are different. “Bangalore does not have a good batting order. The team needs to change,” Sehwag said.
Gambhir demanded change of captain
Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo after RCB’s defeat, it is time for RCB to change its captain. Gambhir said, “Not winning the cup for 8 years is a long time. It is a matter of responsibility. Therefore, Kohli should recognize the responsibility and leave the captaincy.” The main thing is that Virat Kohli came to bat in this important match but was dismissed for 6 runs.
Hyderabad will face Delhi today
After the win over Bangalore, Hyderabad will now face Delhi. The second match of the qualifiers between the two teams will be played on Sunday. The team that wins this match will play the final of the IPL against Mumbai on Tuesday.
