Virat Kohli, the star batter of Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), displayed visible disappointment following the team’s elimination from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Despite RCB’s six-game winning streak, their journey came to an abrupt end with a defeat against Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator. While Kohli’s outstanding performance with the bat throughout the season positions him as a strong contender for the Orange Cap, the coveted IPL trophy remains elusive for the former RCB captain.

Virat Kohli’s IPL 2024 Performance

Kohli’s exceptional season saw him amass 741 runs in 15 matches, making him the first player to cross the 8000-run milestone in IPL history. His elegant style and impeccable timing were evident as he achieved this feat with finesse. Despite being removed by Yuzvendra Chahal after scoring 33 runs off 24 balls in the crucial Eliminator clash, Kohli’s contributions throughout the tournament have been remarkable. With an impressive average of 64 and a strike rate of 155, he registered one century and five half-centuries, solidifying his position as one of the tournament’s top performers.

Emotional Gesture

Following RR’s victory, an emotional Kohli was seen knocking off the bails, reminiscent of his actions after India’s defeat in the ODI World Cup final to Australia at the same venue. The poignant moment captured Kohli’s disappointment at falling short once again in a crucial match.

Future Endeavors

Despite the setback, Kohli’s focus now shifts to the upcoming T20 World Cup, where he is set to represent India. Named in the 15-man squad led by Rohit Sharma, Kohli is scheduled to depart for New York soon to prepare for the tournament. India’s campaign in the T20 World Cup begins with a match against Ireland on June 5.
