Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s star batter Virat Kohli reflected on the highs and lows of an inspirational and memorable Indian Premier League (IPL) season following their loss to Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator on Wednesday. RCB's dream run, despite a challenging start, finally came to an end after a defeat to RR in the eliminator at Ahmedabad's Narendra Modi Stadium.

In a video shared by RCB's official handle, Virat expressed his disappointment at not meeting their cricketing standards, yet he emphasized the team's resilience and comeback from adversity. He acknowledged the under-par performance in the first half of the season but praised the team's turnaround and qualification as truly special, requiring immense character and heart from the players.

RCB's season was marked by a remarkable turnaround, having won just one of their initial eight games but securing their playoff spot after winning the next six matches convincingly and even defeating the defending champions.

Despite the loss to RR, RCB's performance this season earned admiration from fans, experts, and players alike. Captain Faf Du Plessis hailed the team's turnaround and the overwhelming support from the fans, expressing pride in the team's effort and progress.

Summing up the loss and reflecting on what could potentially be his last season with RCB, Dinesh Karthik pointed out the harsh realities of sports and emphasized the importance of attitude and belief, echoing the sentiment of being proud of the team's achievements this year.
