After Virat Kohli made announcement of quitting Team India T20 captaincy due to possible workload, another chorus has started doing the round among cricket enthusiasts.
They say that the 32-year-old should also step down from the Royal Challengers Bangalore leadership role as the "work-load" in the Indian Premier League is "no less" than any international event.
Speaking to IANS, a former BCCI official questioned, if Virat would leave the captaincy of RCB, as leading in all three formats (test, ODI &IPL) will still not resolve the work-load issue. Apart from Kohli’s stunning success as a batsman, he hasn’t mastered the art of captaincy in White ball cricket yet.
Speculations are also there that Kohli might quit RCB captaincy if the team fails to win the title even this time. Amid all the speculations, if India lifts the T20 World Cup, it would ensure Kohli leaves on a high.
On the other hand, Kohli's record as RCB captain has been poor. After taking over the RCB captaincy in 2013, he hasn't been able to deliver a single title and took the team to the final just once.
One of the biggest criticisms of Kohli has been his decision-making which has played a major role in deciding the outcome of India's campaign at the ICC events.
