New Delhi: Former India pace bowler Ajit Agarkar feels that Skipper Virat Kohli will continue to play with the same energy and enthusiasm despite deciding to step down from T20 captaincy after the T20 World Cup and the IPL 2021 season.

“I think it’s one of the things we’ve seen throughout his career. Even when he wasn’t the captain and when he played under MS Dhoni, the energy and the passion still seemed the same. I can’t imagine it changing just because he’s not the captain and just being one of the guys,” Agarkar said on Star Sports after RCB’s nine-wicket loss to KKR on Monday night.

Skipper Virat Kohli recently decided to step down as India’s T20 skipper after the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai and Oman in October-November. Also he said he was relinquishing his RCB captaincy after the 2021 IPL season.

Former India wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel said Skipper Virat Kohli must be feeling relieved. This after relinquishing the RCB captaincy given the workload coupled with prolonged stays in bio-bubbles.

“I think he looked more emotional than happy. When you play for one franchise for so many years, you get that emotional connect which was there in RCB. I think RCB actually invested in Virat Kohli’s talent in 2008. Then showed a lot of trust in him as well. If you look at his and RCB’s journey, it has been a rollercoaster one.

“But yeah, he might be relieved. Moving around from one bubble to another can take a load on you. He has spoken about the workload and intensity he plays with. I think every practice session, every match session or gym session, he does it with full intensity. That’s something I’m sure he must’ve thought about.”
