Once again, the dream of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (IPL) team to win the title was shattered. The Faf du Plessis-led team was defeated by Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 7 wickets in the qualifiers. After RCB's exit from the tournament, former captain of the team Virat Kohli has given a heartwarming message to his fans.
Kohli also thanked the team management and support staff. Kohli tweeted, "Sometimes you win and sometimes you don't win, but 12th Man Army, you've been fantastic. We have always supported us throughout the campaign. You make cricket special.'' Learning never stops. Virat further wrote, "Thank you very much to the management, support staff and all the people who have been a part of this great franchise. See you next season.''
