New Delhi. Virat Kohli has already announced that he will step down as the captain of the Indian T20 team after the T20 World Cup. A few days ago, he also announced that this will be his last season as the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and from the next season of IPL, he will play for the franchise as a player. There was a lot of discussion in the cricket world on these decisions of Kohli.
Meanwhile, Kohli has revealed that he had spoken to fellow and good friend AB de Villiers in the matter of leaving the captaincy of RCB. Kohli said that he wanted a peaceful environment and this made him think of stepping down as the RCB captain.
Kohli wanted to create a peaceful environment
Talking to Star Sports, Kohli said that I spoke to AB de Villiers in 2019 about this decision. With IPL, I was always at a place where I wanted to create a peaceful environment. We had a discussion about it and then I thought we would give it one more year. There were changes in management and things got better in 2020.

At that point I felt a little more relaxed. Talking about the journey of RCB in IPL 2021, the team made it to the playoffs by staying at number three. RCB has also won some spectacular victories this season and is being considered as a strong contender for this title. A few days ago, de Villiers had said that he was fortunate to play under Kohli’s captaincy. He is a fan of his captaincy.
