IPL 2021, RCB Vs CSK: Big Runs From Virat Kohli’s Bat Only Way Out

Believe it or not, Kohli needs one good inning to get back in the flow.

New Delhi: He is up against his predecessor MS Dhoni when RCB takes on Chennai on Friday. Indian and RCB captain Virat Kohli has been the talking point ever since he quit the T20 captaincy. And after India Ahead reported on how Indian coach Ravi Shastri suggested it to Kohli to give up white ball cricket captaincy to concentrate on his batting, questions are being raised about the future of his ODI captaincy. 

As if it means nothing to give up T20 captaincy. With three world events supposed to take place between 2021 to 2023, an Indian captain in white ball cricket could become rich by at least Rs 200 crore (per year) — and who would let go of that opportunity. The clout that Kohli enjoyed picking and choosing is no more with him. He may have decided to stay as the ODI captain, but the board has a different take. If the selectors prefer to have the only captain for white ball cricket, so be it.

Under these circumstances, Kohli resigning from RCB’s captaincy in the middle of the season doesn’t make much sense. His team lost to KKR in the first match of the second leg which is significantly quite worrying for the side. With no freebies available in a high-pressure tournament like IPL, Kohli needs only one thing to keep things going smoothly in his favor. He needs to come back to form. That is because runs from his bat are going to stop people from yapping. 

Even RCB need runs from Kohli’s bat. Believe it or not, he needs one good inning to get back in the flow. Once the flow comes, Kohli will be a dangerous batsman again. Will the CSK match be the game that will bring back all the fortune for Kohli. Let’s wait and watch!
