Royal Challengers Bangalore’s pursuit of an IPL trophy remains unfulfilled as they once again fell short of reaching the playoffs. Despite boasting renowned players such as Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell, among others, RCB has been unable to secure a championship in the tournament’s 16 editions.
This recurring pattern has now become synonymous with the franchise, prompting former England cricketer turned commentator, Kevin Pietersen, to make a significant statement.
Pietersen suggests that former RCB captain Virat Kohli should consider parting ways with the Bangalore-based team. According to KP, Kohli should redirect his focus towards Delhi, Pietersen’s hometown, and explore the opportunity to join the Delhi Capitals instead of persisting with RCB.
Kevin Pietersen’s sentiments towards the Indian stalwart reflect a differing perspective. The suggestion made by Pietersen garnered swift and varied responses from fans.
Some individuals expressed the view that Kohli should consider moving to CSK and assume leadership responsibilities following MS Dhoni’s departure. Conversely, a handful of staunch RCB supporters remained adamant that Kohli would remain loyal to the team and continue his tenure with RCB.
