Another Indian Premier League season that started promisingly for the Royal Challengers Bangalore ended in disappointment with the franchise crashing out of the tournament with five defeats on the trot.

Their supporters might argue that they still reached the playoffs and that is a lot better than some of the other teams in the league but there will be others who feel that perhaps it is time for a change in leadership at the franchise.

Not so much because of how RCB have played but simply because eight seasons as a skipper in the Indian Premier League demand a title. Kohli does have the added advantage of being the biggest brand in Indian cricket and that does get RCB some power in the marketing stakes but results on the field are what must matter to the owners.
