It is expected that the announcement will be one of the biggest tremors in the Cricket World. With Virat Kohli leading the side for 6 years, the Franchise is yet to win the IPL Title. Removing Daniel Vettori, Kohli was appointed as the captain in 2013. No doubt, Kohli has been super with his bat. He had his consistent scores strung with his bat. But as a Captain, Kohli hasn’t been that satisfactory for the franchise.

Based on the recent tourney, Kohli’s performance was enough above the par. Even, foreigners praised this guy for not only for his consistency he has shown but also for his batting styles. They considered him as the best batsman right now in the world. But, talking about his captaincy, it may be said that he had a little bit stuck back in this field. His captaincy luck hasn’t shown anything of a good yield. So, the team management was quite worried regarding this. Making the news of the availability of AB de Villiers in 2019 IPL confirmed, they have shown interest in him to become the captain of their side.

Kohli’s performance in India tour of England has been also considered. This batsman is good in bat but not that captain RCB franchise had wanted.

RCB wanted some fresh thought ideas and to implement on the field, they needed someone who is quite experienced in the field. Maybe Kohli being the captain, had to face so many controversies, it is the team’s sole decision to replace Kohli by AB de Villiers.
