RCB’s all-rounder Glenn Maxwell stated Virat Kohli will unlikely feel unburdened following stepping down from captaincy and a pressure-less Kohli will be ‘dangerous news’ to opponents in upcoming IPL 2022.

 

Virat Kohli gave up as RCB captain after IPL 2021 and also step down from India’s T20I captaincy. He was dismissed as ODI captain prior quitting Test captaincy earlier this year.

 

RCB recruited Faf du Plessis as their new captain after weeks of hypothesizing and the new leader said Kohli’s energy and headship experience will be imperative to other team’s chances in IPL 2022.

 

“He knows he’s handing the captaincy over, which I think is potentially a big burden for him. It might have been something that’s been weighing him down for a while and now that he’s been able to release it, it might be dangerous news for opposition teams,” Maxwell notified RCB Podcast.

 

“It is amazing for him to be relaxed a bit and actually enjoy the next few years of his career without any of that sort of external pressure. I think playing against him in earlier days, he was a fiery competitor, getting in your face. He’s always trying to impose himself on the game. Impose himself on the opposition”, he appended.

 

Maxwell further stated, “Something I’ve noticed more from him this year is he’s been really measured with his emotions. He’s actually been really measured with his decision-making. He’s certainly really surprised me and probably how close we’ve both gotten to each other as well this year. Being able to talk about the game in a calm manner. Because you do see that over-excited, in your face style when you play against him. But to play with him and have really good conversations about the game, I’ve really enjoyed that.”
