Virat Kohli IPL 2021 RCB Team Player: Will Virat Kohli, the highest paid IPL champion, make RCB the champion this time?
Virat Kohli is currently one of the biggest players of cricket. He has done more than one in international cricket. For this reason, in the cricket world, he is called King Kohli. He has equal flair in Tests, ODIs and T20s. Like international cricket, he has a lot of popularity in the IPL as well. Here too, he has kept many records in his name. He is a part of IPL since 2008 and has been playing continuously since then. Virat Kohli and Royal Challengers Bangalore are synonymous with each other. The journey of both started simultaneously. Since then, both of them have seen the ups and downs of the IPL simultaneously. He became the captain of the team in 2013 and since then RCB has been playing under his leadership. However, they have not been able to get the title to RCB yet. In such a situation, Kohli and RCB will have high hopes from IPL 2021.
In 2008, RCB took Virat Kohli through Youth Contract. Then he got very little money. He could not do anything special in the first season. He could score 165 runs in 12 matches. But as the tournament convoy advanced, so did Kohli's game. In 2009, he scored 246 and in 2010 scored 307 runs. With this, he joined the main batsmen of RCB. He was the only player in the 2011 season to be retained by RCB and was named vice-captain of the team. With this responsibility, his game also flourished and he hit 557 runs in IPL 2011. This season RCB played the finals but the trophy remained away. Then with the retirement of Daniel Vettori, Kohli became the captain of RCB.
Kohli and RCB prevailed in 2016
In IPL 2013, RCB missed out in the playoffs. At the same time, Kohli scored 634 runs. In this way, the process of scoring runs continued but RCB's game was in decline. But in IPL 2016, the game was reversed. In this season, Kohli scored 973 runs in 16 matches and set the record for the most runs scored in a season. He won the Orange Cap and was also elected Most Valuable Player. This season, he made several records. These included four T20 centuries in a season, the first 4000 IPL runs. This season RCB again went to the finals but again the victory was far from done.
Kohli is the most expensive player of IPL
Kohli became the most expensive IPL player in IPL 2018. He tied up with RCB for Rs 17 crore. Players like Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni only get 15 crore rupees. Kohli has played 192 matches in the IPL so far and has scored 5878 runs at an average of 38.16. He has five IPL centuries and 39 half-centuries to his name. Fans of RCB would like that Kohli along with scoring runs, this time also make the team the IPL champion for the first time.
