Virat have a massive fan following in India as well as all over the world. He has been captaining Rajasthan Royals for quite some time now.
Royal Challengers Bangalore does not only have Virat Kohli but also some classic batsman like a b de Villiers and also had Chris Gayle sometime back. However, the performance of Royal Challengers Bangalore has been far from what it deserves. Despite such a stunning batting line up, It has always performed miserably, to say the least. Most of the times it ends up in the bottom with the last two or three standings which does not really justify the class of team it has.

It’s best performance have been reaching the finals and ending as runner up in the year 2009 and 2011 and 2016.

Unless and until Virat Kohli can pick up with the performance of his team and produce nothing less than the trophy, this tag of underachievers would be hard to get rid of.
