New Delhi: Virat Kohli has recently announced to quit the captaincy of India's T20 team and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Kohli has said that he will quit team India after the T20 World Cup and will also step down from the Bangalore captaincy after this season of IPL. Kohli's decision has left his fans extremely disappointed. But now Kohli has broken his silence on the issue. He said workload management is the biggest reason behind the decision. Kohli said in an interview with Star Sports that he wants to do anything with 120 per cent passion.
Kohli said, "The workload was the main reason for this first. I don't want to be dishonest about my responsibilities. If I cannot give 120 per cent for some work, I am not one of those who will hold them. I am not connected with anything like this and it has always been clear in my mind.'' Kohli took over the reins of Bangalore in the IPL season of 2013. Before him, Daniel Vettori was the captain of the team. Meanwhile, Bangalore has reached the playoffs four times and made it to the final in 2016. Kohli, 32, has made it clear that he will step down from the Bangalore captaincy after this season.
