IPL 2021: Virat Kohli will leave the captaincy of RCB after season-14

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli surprised everyone by deciding to step down from the captaincy of this format after the T20 World Cup.  On Thursday 16 September, the captain told this decision to everyone through social media.  On its third day (Sunday 19 September), he also announced to leave the captaincy of the franchise team Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.  After this announcement of Virat, it has now been decided that he will never go on the field to captain the T20 team after this.

Virat Kohli is considered to be a very combative and challenging player.  The criticism of not winning the ICC tournament continuously and not getting the team title in IPL broke him badly.  The result is in front of us that those who have never given up have accepted that the pressure has increased and now they do not want to bear it any more.  What Kohli had said while announcing his decision to step down from the captaincy of the Indian team, he said the same thing while leaving the captaincy of RCB.

On his decision to leave the captaincy of the Indian team in this format after the T20 World Cup, Virat had said, he has been captaining continuously for the last 8-9 years and now wants to reduce this pressure.  Will continue to captain in ODIs and Tests but will not take over the command of the T20 team.  This will reduce the pressure on them.

I have decided to leave the captaincy of RCB team after the end of this season as I decided to step down from the T20 captaincy of Indian team just a few days back.  I have been captaining for many years and now I am leaving it because of my workload management.  It was getting difficult for me to move forward while doing this work, so it was decided that this place should be taken by a new person.  With this I will be able to give complete dedication in my work.
