Don’t know if Virat Kohli’s decision could be bit of a disturbance, Says Brian Lara

West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara stated that Royal Challengers Bangalore’s defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders got nothing to do with Virat Kohli quitting the captaincy of the side post this season.

“Don’t know if Virat Kohli’s decision could be bit of a disturbance. I don’t believe so. As a group of professionals, they would want to win this year; he would want to win this year. It’s too early to say if such an announcement can have an adverse effect on your team,” Lara told cricket.com on Tuesday.

“They were outgunned by a team that we all know, when they are at their very best, it would be very difficult to keep them out,” he added.

Kolkata Knight Riders thrashed RCB in a big win of 9 wickets on Monday.

“It was a poor performance from RCB. Take nothing away from KKR. We know KKR is a very good outfit. They’ve got their issues. They played poorly in the first half of the tournament.

Lara, however, stated that Kohli’s dismissal was “more of a technical flaw”.

“In the World Cup 2019 semifinal against New Zealand, LBW again — you look (at) his head position. The ball before (vs KKR) he struck it through extra-cover — maybe the best shot of the match. Head was on top of the ball. The next delivery, his head was almost in the same position as the previous ball, but the line was completely different — it was coming down from middle and off, angling into middle and leg,” the West Indian legend said.

RCB will return to action when they will take on MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings on September 24.
