KP Says Virat Kohli Should Leave RCB & Join This Team If He Wants To Win IPL

The dream of RCB fans of seeing their team lifting the IPL trophy broke once again as RCB got knocked out of the tournament after losing the eliminator to Rajasthan Royals by 4 wickets.

RCB hasn’t won a trophy in the 17 seasons of the IPL, Virat Kohli has been associated with the franchise since the inaugural edition of 2008 and he has also led the team in 9 seasons but he has also failed in making his team win an IPL trophy. Virat Kohli has been a star performer for his team and this year also, he is the Orange cap holder which means that he is the highest run getter in the tournament but his team is now out of the IPL 2024.

Many feel that Virat Kohli should shift to another franchise if he wants to win a trophy and former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen is also of the same opinion.

While speaking on a sports channel, KP said, “I have said it before and I will say it again — the greats of the game in other sports, have left teams to go and seek glory somewhere else. When he has tried and tried so hard — won the Orange Cap yet again and done so much yet again and the franchise fails again. I understand for the brand of the team and the commercial value he brings to the team… But Virat Kohli deserves a trophy. He deserves to play in a team that could help him to get that trophy.”

KP suggested that Virat Kohli should move to Delhi and he also gave the example of David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, etc. to justify his statement. He said, “I actually think it should be Delhi. Delhi is the place where Virat needs to go. Virat can go away, and stay at home most of the time, I know he has a home in Delhi. He has a young family. He can spend more time there. He is a Delhi boy. Why can’t he go back? Delhi are as desperate as Bengaluru.”

He further said, “I think it’s about time Virat thought long and hard. Beckham left, Ronaldo left, Messi left, Harry Kane just left Spurs and went to Bayern Munich.”

Do you agree with Kevin Pietersen?
