Royal Challengers Bangalore player Virat Kohli wrote a moving statement for himself and the team's fans after learning that the team's IPL 2023 league phase campaign has come to a conclusion. Gujarat Titans had to be defeated for RCB to go to the playoffs, however, they lost by a score of six wickets on Sunday and were eliminated from the match. With a century in the game, Kohli was naturally sad to see his huge dream of winning the IPL crown fall short once more.
What they said
"A season that had its high points, but sadly we fell short of the mark. Although disappointed, we must maintain our composure. We are appreciative of your support at every turn, dear followers. Thank you so much to the management, coaches, and my teammates." Virat stated on Instagram, "Our goal is to come back stronger."
In terms of his personal life, Kohli found the 16th IPL to be a success. Virat hit 101 in just 61 balls in the game against the defending champions, GT. He scored one six and 13 fours throughout his knock.
