New Delhi: Despite Virat Kohli's heroics, the Royal Challengers Bangalore side failed to cross the final hurdle in the Indian Premier League yet again.
With a tally of 973 runs, the 27-year-old not only won the Orange Cap but was also adjudged the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
Sadly for the in-form right-hander, this is the second successive loss he has endured in the last couple of months.
After a heart-breaking defeat at the hands of West Indies in the ICC World T20, Virat was undone by David Warner's Orange Army in the IPL final.
At both events, Virat was at his absolute best.
Addressing the loyal RCB fans for the first time since the IPL final, Virat took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to share his sentiments.
Thank you to all the fans who have cheered for us & supported us always.
I am indebted to your love. Thank You Bengaluru #RCBForever (2/2)
