Former India opener and Kolkata Knight Riders captain, Gautam Gambhir has offered a piece of advice to Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli, insisting him to persist with the same team for longer in the upcoming campaign in the UAE.

Gautam Gambhir said the biggest difference between MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli's captaincy styles is the ability to trust players and give them more opportunities. Gambhir pointed out that RCB tend to shuffle their playing XI a bit too much, leading to inconsistency.

Gambhir urged Kohli to give his players at RCB a longer run at IPL 2020. Gambhir said it's important that the RCB skipper sticks with his players if he feels he has a 'balanced squad' at his disposal.

""What Virat Kohli has said, when you are happy with your squad as a captain, you would have already planned which playing XI you want to play. If you are satisfied, then the calmness also comes along. Because there are times that you do not come to know your best XI in the entire tournament and that is why you make a lot of changes," Gambhir said during the latest episode of Star Sports Cricket Connected.

"The biggest difference between Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni is that MS Dhoni persists with his players for 6-7 matches. If you see RCB's trend, they make changes very quickly because they have a doubt that their playing XI does not have a proper balance."

"So I would want to see from RCB that even if the start is not good, they should persist with their playing XI and give them 6-7 matches. Because then only the players will give you performances and not if you give one or two matches.
