His batting, bowling and Kohli's captaincy was not as expected.5 reasons not to reach the playoffs of Bengaluru
1. Kohli's poor captaincy
In this season, Kohli proved to be a failure as a captain many times. He was criticized for rotation of bowlers many times. He gave Mohammad Siraj the chance in nine matches, but he got runs from the economy of 9.55. He did not buy Specialist Pacer in the auction. Apart from this, Moin Ali and Marx Stonis have not been able to properly use bowlers.
Kohli's success rate as captain is 45%
Kohli is the regular captain of Bangalore from 2012. In his captaincy, Bengaluru could not reach the playoffs any time except in 2015 and 2016. His record is the worst in the cricketers who have captained more than 100 matches in the IPL. They have lost 55 wins in 108 matches, while only 49 have won.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni 169 102 66 0 1
Gautam Gambhir 129 71 57 1
Virat Kohli 108 48 55 2 3

Except AB de Villiers, any other foreign player could not perform as per the expectations of Bangalore. Moin scored 220 and Stoney's 211, but it can not be said very well in the IPL. Shimron Hetmayer purchased at auction for Rs 4.2 crore proved completely floppy. Kohli had bought him as the fourth batsman, but he could only make 15 runs in 4 matches. Tim saudi
