Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has suggested that Virat Kohli, captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), should consider playing for Delhi Capitals in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). This recommendation comes after RCB’s elimination from IPL 2023 despite Kohli’s exceptional performance.
RCB’s Missed Opportunity
In the final league game, RCB needed a victory to secure the last available playoff spot. However, Shubman Gill’s century outshone Kohli’s second successive century, resulting in RCB’s loss against Gujarat Titans by 6 wickets.
Following RCB’s elimination, Kevin Pietersen took to Twitter to propose that Kohli should make the move to Delhi Capitals. Pietersen believes that playing for the capital city team could be a fresh opportunity for Kohli.
Gujarat Titans’ Impressive Performance
Gujarat Titans finished the league stage at the top of the points table with 20 points. They will now face Chennai Super Kings, who secured the second spot, in the first playoff match.
Gill’s Impactful Performance
Shubman Gill’s exceptional batting performance and his ability to play cricketing shots with confidence have made him a standout player for Gujarat Titans. His presence in the team provides confidence to other batters as well.
Despite Kohli’s outstanding performance, RCB’s elimination from IPL 2023 has prompted Kevin Pietersen to suggest that Kohli should consider joining Delhi Capitals for the next season. The upcoming playoffs will determine which team will progress further in the tournament.
