Virat Kohli should leave Royal Challengers Bengaluru to win trophies, says Kevin Pietersen | Ipl News

Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bengaluru on Wednesday lost to Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator of the Indian Premier League 2024 four wickets. With the defeat, the franchise has been eliminated from the tournament and will remain trophyless since the inception of the showpiece event 17 years ago in 2008.
Despite the ups and downs of the team Virat Kohli has been consently delivering the performances for them over the years. The 35-year-old is the highest run-getter in IPL ever with 8004 runs at an average of 38.66 and a strike rate of 131.97. However, despite his performances, the IPL trophy has been elusive. “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.” former English player Kevin Pietersen would suggest to Star Sports.
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 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,” Pietersen added.
Pietersen would take football references where star players have moved clubs to win trophies. “I think it’s about time Virat Kohli thought long and hard. Beckham left, Ronaldo left, Messi left, Harry Kane just left Spurs and went to Bayern Munich,” he would say.
Kohli can go to Delhi Capitals
Ironically Pietersen would suggest Virat Kohli to move from one trophyless franchise to another in Delhi Capitals. “I 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 is as desperate as Bengaluru.
