Even though Royal Challengers Bangalore are set to play another game in this edition of the IPL, star batsman AB de Villiers has returned home to spend time with his family ahead of the Champions Trophy.
It has been one of the worst seasons for Royal Challengers Bangalore this year in the IPL and on Monday it was skipper Virat Kohli who apologised to the fans for the poor show.
The team has lost 10 of the 13 games they have played so far and are placed last on the points table with 5 points.

Kohli took to Twitter to thank the fans for the unconditional support and also apologised for the poor performance from the team. His post read: “Thanks to the @RCBTweets fans for all the unconditional love and support this season as well. Sorry we couldn't play up to our standards.”
RCB, who have reached the final three times since IPL's inception in 2008, are rock-bottom in the points table with just two wins this year.
Taking to Twitter, ABD wrote: “A disappointing #IPL2017. Some tough lessons learnt that we take in to next year! Happy to be home with the family before the #CT17 in June.”
