Kohli, 32, will step back from his RCB role at the end of the current IPL, which restarted on Sunday. He will end his reign as India T20 Captain after the World Cup.
“It’s been a great journey of nine years, of joy, frustration, moments of happiness and sadness,” said Kolhi.
The batsman has said he wants to continue as India’s Test and one-day captain.
“This will be my last leg in the IPL as Captain of RCB,” he added.
“It is something that was on my mind for a while, as I recently announced stepping down from T20 captaincy to manage my workload.” (BBC)
