RCB were outclassed by Delhi Capitals at home by four wickets after another poor effort with both the bat and the ball.Virat Kohli has run out of answers as the Royal Challengers Bangalore are the only team not have gotten points on the board so far in IPL 2019. Kohli’s men registered their longest losing streak of seven matches after Sunday’s defeat to Shreyas Iyer’s men.Yet again, Kohli was the lone bright spot in their batting unit as the skipper made 41 from 33 balls as RCB managed just 149. Delhi Capitals gunned down the target with seven balls to spare despite losing a few quick wickets towards the end.”If India are smart they rest @imVkohli now for the World Cup … Give him some time off before the big event … #IPL2019 (sic),” Vaughan wrote on Twitter.Vaughan’s comment was backed by quite a few cricket fans from India who stressed the need for resting Kohli ahead of the World Cup in England and Wales from May 30.If India are smart they rest @imVkohli now for the World Cup … Give him some time off before the big event … #IPL2019Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 7, 2019Dear @RCBTweets , better leave @imVkohli for rest of the season .

RCB IPL goose is all but cooked. Need him 100% for the World Cup.Anup Chowdhury (@Nuperman) April 7, 2019Kohli has had a busy 18 months with India going on as many as three overseas tours. The India captain has been on the thick of things as he had led the team from the front in their historic series wins in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.Even Kohli had suggested that he would not be shying away from taking a rest and stressed on the need for workload management of his World Cup-bound India teammates.On Sunday, Kohli wore a dejected look and conceded he has run out of excuses after the loss to Delhi Capitals.”There’s nothing more you can tell the team. We’ve asked the boys to take responsibility. It hasn’t happened so far, and that’s the reality. Need to play expressive cricket. I am personally not trying to control anything,” Kohli had said.”After a while, it’s about the skill. The team needs to relax, whatever’s in front of us, we need to accept it.”RCB need at least seven wins from their remaining eight matches to stand a chance of qualifying for the playoffs. If the performances in their first six matches are anything to by, RCB may struggle to even stitch a couple of wins together.Also Read | Have nothing more to tell the team: Virat Kohli after RCB lose again in IPL 2019Also Read | 6 out of 6: Royal Challengers Bangalore touch new low in Indian Premier LeagueFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
