Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir said that there is plenty of time for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to see Virat Kohli as captain. The 32-year-old Kohli has been his captain since 2013 and has not won the title for his team in eight years.

RCB’s best performance against Virat came in 2016 when they qualified for the final where they were defeated by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Gambhir, who is a two-time IPL winner with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), mentioned that Kohli should hold himself responsible for the lack of challengers over the years.

“It’s not just about a year, it’s not just about that. I have nothing against Virat Kohli but somewhere he needs to put his hand down the line and say, ‘Yes, I am responsible. I am accountable ‘, Gambhir was quoted as saying in ESPNcricinfo.

Gambhir also put Rohit Sharma And MS Dhoni’s example is to highlight the reasons for staying with a captain for a long time.

“Eight years is a long, long time. See what happened to R Ashwin. Two year captaincy [for the Kings XI Punjab], He could not deliver and was removed. We talk about MS Dhoni, we talk about Rohit Sharma, we talk about Virat Kohli… not at all, ”he said.

Dhoni won three [IPL] The title, Rohit Sharma, has won four titles, and the reason why he has captained for so long is because he has given. I am sure if Rohit Sharma could not play for eight years, he would have been removed. There should not be different yardsticks for different people, ”said Gambhir.

On Friday 6 November, RCB pulled out of the tournament after their six-wicket defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at LCN. At the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, RCB were able to score only 131 runs after batting first.

AB de Villiers Made a brilliant half-century, but could not reach his team’s big score. In the run-chase, the Challengers achieved some early successes. But the calm heads of Kane Williamson and Jason Holder denied them victory.
