David Warner and Rohit Sharma, the captains of two successful IPL franchises Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians respectively discussed the reasons why Virat Kohli led RCB hasn't won any IPL title yet, despite having many superstars in the squad. They went about this discussion on Instagram live. Both of these players have been doing Instagram live sessions occasionally.
When will RCB win?
During the live session David Warner asked Rohit when will RCB win their first title. He added that RCB had the best team in the tournament for the past 10 years. To which Rohit responded that
“Honestly speaking we sit and plan for RCB more than any other team because of their batting lineup, their batting lineup is just unreal man. Our meeting goes upto couple of hours if the opposition is RCB”.
He also added that it was unfortunate that RCB hasn't been able win the title.
“They had a very balanced squad this season, and it's one of the reasons why i was so excited about this year's IPL” added Rohit.
RCB and IPL trophy
Virat Kohli led RCB is one team in the IPL that starts each season with high expectations due their star studded batting lineup including the likes of AB DeVilliers and the captain Kohli himself, but fails miserably in each and every season. They are also one team that enjoys huge fanbase despite not having won the title atleast once. So it was quite fair that everyone doubts why they haven't been able to get their hands on the silverware after playing in the league for 13 long years.
Both SRH and MI have terrific head to head record against RCB. But Hyderabad based franchises Deccan Chargers and Sunrisers Hyderabad have special rivalry against their neighbours RCB. These two teams have prevented RCB from getting their hands on the prestigious trophy. DC defeated RCB in 2009 final and SRH did the same thing to RCB in 2016 final.
