Virat Kohli Becomes The Third Player To Captain 100 Matches But With The Worst Record In Doing So

Another day, another disappointment for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who continue their winless streak in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) having played four matches and have found themselves at the bottom of the league's points table. 

After captain Kohli got dismissed by a magnificent Shreyas Gopal (who ended up with a three-wicket-haul), the second RCB opener, Parthiv Patel put the burden on his shoulders to help his side reach a respectable total of 158. Patel's bat contributed with 67 runs off 41 balls which also included 9 boundaries and a maximum. 

However, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were too hot to handle for the men in red and gold as they spearheaded Royals to win their first game of the season.

Having said that, Tuesday's match against Rajasthan got Virat Kohli an incredible feat to boast about as it provided him with the opportunity to captain an IPL squad for the 100th time and make him only the third cricketer in the world to do so, behind Chennai Super Kings star Mahendra Singh Dhoni (162 matches) and former IPL player, Gautam Gambhir (129 matches between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils

Today our skipper – @imVkohli becomes the third captain in IPL history to play as captain in 100 matches. Congratulations Virat, keep playing bold! #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/Ar5FASqB24

Ironically, such a record that should normally bring a sense of pride to any athlete, also brings immense shame to RCB skipper as Kohli has the worst record amongst the men who have reached such a status. 

Amongst the 162 games led by Dhoni, he has a win percentage of 60.24% while Gambhir's is at 55.42% with three and two titles under their belts, respectively. Kohli, on the other hand, is at a below average mark of 46.87% wins as captain. Not to forget the fact that Bengaluru have never won the trophy.

With another loss of the season in what appears to be a lost cause, RCB fans have resorted to humour to hide their pain but we see right through it:

#RCB lose 4 matches constantly , last in points table , and team's net run rate is also very poor.
