The Indian Premier League (IPL) of 2019 may have started with R Ashwin’s mankading controversy and got all it needed, when the on field umpires missed Malinga’s no ball, but it seems that the worst is yet to come.
We have seen how Royal Challengers Bangalore never got to win the title but still edged a loyal fan following for themselves, with Virat Kohli taking the reign every year and leading them to some unforgettable on field moments.
Recently, according to reports, Virat Kohli seemed so upset and visibly angry that he even stormed into the match referee’s room, after it was disclosed that it was a no ball and his team had a chance to win, if the on umpires were more careful and sincere. He even said that they are not playing any club cricket.
After his team, RCB suffered three consecutive losses this year, Kohli seems miffed. Especially after the defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad, he is clearly not taking these well. Earlier, his team suffered losses against Mumbai Indians as well as Chennai Super Kings.
This third humiliating defeat was too much for him to take, and this prompted his immediate decision to step down from the post of captaincy. Yes, apparently he does not want to continue as a captain for RCB and took this bold decision.
He said ‘one of our worst losses ever. Literally, nothing i can explain’. This clearly states how much humiliating this is for him. He has already decided to hand over the role to Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the most promising in the team.
Kohli said he wants to see Chahal leading the team, as being an integral part of RCB as well as the Indian team, he will get time and opportunity for his future leadership abilities. He himself wants to groom and train him, so that he gets promoted in the batting order as well, when he will definitely hit a six.
So, now we have wait and see how the RCB management reacts to this.
