Though Virat and co. ruling the cricket world in the present scenario Virat sadly had to go through ‘Yeah! We lost but Boys played well’ moment as his co-owned team FC Goa is out of the prestigious Indian Super League.
On one side, he was sad for his team was ejected from the tournament after a tie in the first leg of the semi-final 1-1 against Chennaiyin FC. The Chennaiyin FC held the away goal advantage, however, they clinched a clear win in the second leg of the tournament with 3-0 against the Virat Kohli owned franchise. Considering the aggregate score of 4-1, Chennaiyin FC has proceeded for the final match of the 5-month-long tournament against Bengaluru FC.
Bengaluru has reached the final match with an aggregate score of 3-1 in the semi-final matches against FC Pune City. The Indian cricket team skipper, Virat Kohli appreciated the hard work of his team on reaching the semis even though he was disappointed that the team did not make it to the final.
Virat Kohli credited the efforts put in by manager Sergio Lobera and the rest of the team in this heartwarming message to his team via Twitter:

Though Virat’s franchise couldn’t make it to the final match, they still remain the highest goal scorers of the tournament with 42 goals in the league stages. In the 2015 edition of the Indian Super League, FC Goa secured the second spot after losing the title match to Chennaiyin FC, their dream ended on the verge by the same team.
Maybe next year, Virat’s co-owner franchise end this jinx and lift the trophy with pride, till then, we can just hope for the best. The Indian cricket captain is currently on a break as Rohit Sharma is leading the Indian team in the 2018 Nidahas Trophy. The next we’ll be seeing Virat is in the RCB jersey in IPL 2018 which is set to start from April 7 and no doubt we are too excited for it.
