New Delhi. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s dream of winning the IPL title for one more time remained unfulfilled. Bangalore’s team reached the playoffs with the help of luck and winning the eliminator also raised the hope of becoming the champion for the first time. But, Rajasthan Royals defeated him in the second qualifier. In this match, RCB had set a target of 158 runs in front of Rajasthan, which Rajasthan achieved with 11 balls due to Jos Buttler’s unbeaten 106 and reached the final and came closer to winning the second title.
After Royal Challengers Bangalore’s exit from the playoffs, former captain Virat Kohli has tweeted a heartwarming post for the fans of the team. Virat wrote in his message to the fans, “Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. But as 12th man army you guys were brilliant. Always supported us. Encouraged even in difficult times. You made cricket special. Learning never stops. Thanks to the team management, support staff and everyone involved in this franchise. See you next season. Play bold.”

Kohli was the victim of golden duck thrice
IPL 2022 has not been good for Kohli. He was the victim of Golden Duck thrice this season. In the second qualifier against Rajasthan Royals, he made a good start by hitting a six off Trent Boult. But in the very next over, he was caught out on the ball of famous Krishna. He scored only 7 runs. In this season, he scored 341 runs in 16 matches at an average of 22.73.

This is his worst performance in IPL since 2010. Before this season, Kohli had also left the captaincy of RCB. Faf du Plessis captained RCB in his place in IPL 2022. But, even he could not get the team the first title. He scored 25 runs in the second qualifier.
