But Kohli and Co. bounced back to win five games on the trot at the back end of the competition, something that, in the end, proved to be a bridge too far in terms of making the playoffs.”Thank you guys for all the love & support – the entire team including the fans, the ground staff & the support staff! Promise to come back stronger next year,” Kohli wrote on his Instagram page. He posted this along with a photo from the Chinnaswamy stadium which showed fans holding a banner which said: “We’ll always keep our heads high, our love for RCB will never die”.Taking a dig at the RCB skipper’s post, Mallya tweeted: “Always a great line up but sadly on paper only. Devastated with the wooden spoon”.Always a great line up but sadly on paper only.
