Is Virat Kohli the worst ever captain in IPL?
Virat Kohli captains Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB). So far it hasn’t been a good run for RCB with Virat Kohli as the Captain. In 2018 edition RCB was ranked as second last in the points table with just 4 points in the winning column. That is perhaps the darkest dip RCB saw. In this season of 2019, The start is yet again not so bright for the Men in Red as they already have lost their two matches and the matches were fairly one-sided as well. Take a look at the captaincy of Kohli if we widen the number of matches played. Virat has a win percentage of only 47% that is slightly above Ajinkya Rahane who has captained a few matches only.

Is Rohit Sharma a better captain than Virat Kohli, Well this is a million dollar question but if you dig deep and analyze with neutrality then you will come to know that Both have Captained Team India in T20s and Both have Won 12 Matches each BUT!

Rohit Sharma with his calm and cool head in a pressure situation is perhaps more suitable and has a calming effect on the nerves of a team than the expressive Virat who is more vibrant and emotionally involved in the game. Besides everything simply the Stats are enough to determine that Rohit Sharma is better in captaincy, He has won IPL title Three Times, MS Dhoni has also won it 3 Times and then there is Virat Kohli’s RCB not in the top 5.
