New Delhi:

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly feels that Virat Kohli should take it easy while leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore side in the Indian Premier League, which in turn would help him focus on his primary duty scoring as many runs as possible.

Under Kohli's captaincy, RCB have lost six of 10 games and one of India's finest captains feels that it has got to do with the kind of pressure Virat is taking on himself.

"Probably, it's time he needs to sit back and think about his captaincy," Ganguly said, adding, "I had a word with Gautam Gambhir a few days back asking him to look at captaincy in a different way and I feel it is time for Virat also to do the same."

According to Ganguly, the rigours of captaincy at some point of time affect everyone sub-consciously.

"Therefore, my advice to Virat would be to concentrate on scoring runs and think about captaincy only when he leads the side onto the field," the former Indian captain said in reference to the RCB captain's poor batting form.
