Virat Kohli is the only player in IPL to play for the same franchise throughout the IPL career. He has been through thick and thin for the RCB team and management. The highest run-getter of IPL though is yet to win an IPL. However, he has played the IPL final a few times.
Though he has said he will quit captaincy of the team regardless of they win or lose, he will still be continuing as a mainstay of the team.
