It’s no secret that Indian Premier League, (IPL 2020) is being held here in the UAE this year, and the esteemed and high-profile cricket tournament has come to that nail-biting point where literally ANYTHING can happen. *Anything* can make or break the team’s chances at winning the tournament at this stage.
So with heavy fan expectations, it’s no lie to say that the pressure is ON for the IPL cricketers.
Fan fave cricketer, Virat Kohli who’s been a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, (RCB) since its inception back in 2008 and is the current team captain for RCB is facing some serious heat on social media after losing a match to Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 97 runs, on Thursday night.
Rumours that the flamboyant cricketer has ‘given up’ captaincy of RCB to his close team-mate, AB de Villiers are doing rounds on the net… and well… there is ZERO truth to that!
Tweets claiming that Kohli, who leads RCB, is abdicating his captaincy because of ‘pressure’ ain’t nothing but just a rumour
BTW last night was a huge milestone for the flamboyant cricketer, as the match against KXIP in Sharjah marked Kohli’s 200th game for his franchise RCB.
