The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has been the centre of attraction in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). Sadly, not for their good performances. The team has gotten off to one of their worst starts ever in the history of the IPL. They have lost all the four matches so far, the latest being, a seven-wicket defeat against the Rajasthan Royals and Virat Kohli is facing severe flak from the fans.

Kohli has led them in 100 matches now and the team has managed to win only 45 matches. Moreover, despite promising so much, the RCB has never won the title and qualified for the playoffs and final in 2016. Apart from the performances of the players apart from AB de Villiers and Kohli, the latter’s captaincy has also come under the scanner this time.

While it was the case of reading the pitch wrongly in the season opener against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the team selection has also been horrible so far.

Kohli himself failing

To add to his woes, Virat Kohli himself has failed miserably this time around. In four matches, he has mustered only 78 runs at a poor strike-rate of 98.73 and is struggling to decide his batting position. Also, he has benched the players who should’ve been in the playing XI for almost every match. Washington Sundar who is one of the best bowlers when it comes to T20 format is yet to play a game and even Tim Southee is warming the bench.

He has already hinted about making significant changes for their next game against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) but to infuse any confidence in his players, Virat Kohli has to be amongst the runs first. The fans have also lost their patience this season after watching RCB lose and they are demanding for his sacking now. It remains to be seen how RCB fares in their next game and better performance is imperative now for them.
