IPL 2021: Will Virat Kohli Quit RCB Captaincy too?

 - Sakshi Post

Kohli has opted to step down as India's T20I captain after the T20 World Cup, citing a tough workload. Many have begun to speculate whether he will step down as RCB captain after IPL 2021, especially with a major auction for IPL 2022 approaching.

Since taking over as captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in 2013, there has been a lot of pressure on him to lead the franchise to their maiden IPL victory. However, while doing admirably on an individual level, he has failed miserably to win a title.

RCB has seen highs and lows under Virat Kohli's leadership. Despite reaching individual milestones such as becoming the IPL's all-time leading scorer, the IPL title has remained elusive.RCB's team had failed in the final three times and the IPL playoffs three times, including IPL 2020.
