The former India skipper Virat Kohli has thanked all the RCB fans for their incredible support throughout the season after crashing out of the Indian Premier League 2022 on Friday.

On Friday night, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s campaign in the Indian Premier League 2022 came to an end after losing to Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in the 2nd Qualifier at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

Following the RCB’s exit, their former skipper Virat Kohli has penned down an emotional note for the team, support staff, and the fans. On Saturday, the Indian superstar took the social media to thank fans for their undying love and immense support for the team throughout the season.

“See you the next season,” says Virat Kohli to the RCB fans

In his emotional note, Virat Kohli mentioned that winning and losing is the part of the game. He also vowed to get back stronger the next season while thanking everyone associated with the franchise.

“Sometimes you win, and sometimes you don’t, but the 12th Man Army, you have been fantastic, always backing us throughout our campaign. You make cricket special. The learning never stops. A big thanks to the management, support staff and all the people who are part of this amazing franchise. See you next season,” wrote Virat Kohli in his social media post.


RCB had a mixed bag of a season as they sneaked into the playoffs with some help from the rivals Mumbai Indians after finishing fourth in the points table. Meanwhile, they defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator to reach the 2nd Qualifier.

However, the Reds failed to cross the hurdle presented by Rajasthan Royals and their wait for the IPL trophy has been extended by another year.

At the same time, Virat Kohli had an underwhelming season with the bat as the right-handed batter could only manage 341 runs in 16 matches at an average of 22.73 and a strike rate of below 116.
