The Royal Challengers Bangalore captain couldn’t hold back and took it to Twitter about his team’s loss in the Indian Premier League 2020 on November 7th. Virat Kohli’s team is now officially out of the league after losing the eliminator match on Friday.

On Twitter, he shared a group photograph of the team with an emotional message as they were all very hopeful to win the first-ever IPL trophy but were knocked out by SunRisers Hyderabad in Abu Dhabi where Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a 6 wicket loss in the must-win match.

The Bangalore-based franchise’s season ended without any trophies, but he still stated that he is proud of his team and the way did make it to top 4.

RCB’s captain stated that together they had seen many highs and lows and it has been an incredible journey together as a unit and also thanked all their fans for unconditional support. 

In the IPL 2020 eliminator, David Warner won the toss and sent RCB to bat first at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Virat Kohli opened the innings with Devdutt Padikkal, but the move recoiled as the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper was sent back by Jason Holder in the following over.

Jason Holder was unstoppable, and again in his next over pushed RCB on the backfoot to remove the in-form Padikkal. AB de Villiers and Aaron Finch steadied the match for RCB but wasted a lot of deliveries in the means, allowing SRH bowlers to dictate terms in the middle overs.

Finch was out for 32 by Shahbaz Nadeem while an accurate yorker from T Natarajan cleaned up de Villiers. SRH bowlers restrained RCB from scoring not more than 131 for seven in 20 overs. Manish Pandey and Warner added 41 runs for the next wicket after missing Shreevats Goswami in the first over of their run quest.
