A frustrated Royal Challengers Bangalore fan blamed star batter Virat Kohli for the team's title drought in the Indian Premier League (IPL) since the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2008.

RCB are one of the eight original teams that have been part of cash-rich franchise T20 league since 2008, but they are yet to get hold of the coveted trophy. Virat Kohli has been playing for Royal Challengers Bengaluru since the inaugural season of the IPL in 2008 but is yet to add IPL trophy to his cabinet.

In a viral video, a RCB fan said that the team won't be able to win an IPL trophy as long as Virat Kohli is in the team.

"As long as Virat Kohli in team we can't win any trophy." a fan said after watching the match between Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Kolkata Knight Riders at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Friday.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (now Royal Challengers Bengaluru) reached the finals thrice in 2009, 2011, and 2016 but failed to finish the season on top with a trophy. RCB reached the playoffs for three times on the trot in 2020, 2021 and 2022 but never went past the knockout stage of the tournament.

In IPL 2023, Royal Challengers Bengaluru had a disappointing campaign as they failed to qualify for the playoffs after finishing sixth in the league of the tournament.

Royal Challengers Bangalore had a disappointing start to their IPL 2024 as they lost the opening match to the defending champions Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk. It was the first match of the ongoing IPL season.

However, Bengaluru-based team made a comeback and earned first victory of the season with a four-wicket win over Punjab Kings in Bengaluru. Virat Kohli emerged as the star performer of the match as he played a brilliant knock of 77 off 49 balls to help RCB to chase down the target of 177. Dinesh Karthik gave a finishing touch with a six and a four.

In the third match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Virat Kohli played a brilliant knock of 83 off 51 balls but went in vain as RCB lost to visitors by 7 wickets. After posting a total of 182/6 in 20 overs, the hosts couldn't defend it as KKR chased the target of 183 with 3.5 overs to spare.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru are currently at the sixth spot on the points tables with 2 points after three matches. The three-time IPL finalists will play their next match against Lucknow Super Giants in Bengaluru on April 2, Tuesday.
