Recently KKR announced Shreyas Iyer as their new captain and now there are only two franchises who are captain less. Royal Challengers Bangalore and and Punjab Kings.

Huge fanbase of RCB are waiting for their new captain, lots of talks going around, now RCB Director of cricket Mike Hesson announced they are going to announce New RCB captain within a week.

Let’s see who can be their captain-

  1. Virat Kohli
Earlier he left captaincy citing workload and his captaincy focus for Indian ODI and Test team but now things aren’t the same as it was, BCCI appointed Rohit Sharm as ODI captain, Virat left Test format captaincy so that workload is gone from the Virat’s shoulders and before Auction RCB CEO himself said “We’ll convince Virat to take captaincy back” so, if everything went according to their plan then maybe Kohli take captaincy responsibility again.

2.Dinesh Karthik

DK will be surely in RCB management mind while deciding their new captain, usually, the team prefers an Indian captain for better franchise management local captain gives an edge at auction time, etc, etc plus DK is experienced, earlier did captaincy for KKR, So all these things make him a good contender for the captaincy.

3.Glenn Maxwell

If not Virat and Dk then surely Maxwell can be one, as last year Maxwell was their star performer, he clearly mentioned several times he loves RCB environment, he is Melbourne Stars captain in BBL all these things are in favor of Maxi and he is a good Captaincy material tho who can stay at RCB for at least next five years.

4.Faf Du Plessis

This is the person whom we were talking about. The former CSK superstar has the upper hand. When RCB bought him to auction, Mike Hesson said ” Now we have three players in leadership group Virat, Maxwell and Faf” so, it’s clear RCB bought him to give added responsibility and that might be the captaincy.

Faf is experienced, captained RSA national team, the only thing which go against Faf is his age as he can be only there for 2-3 years as captain and every team look for stability but yeah surely Faf is one of the front runner up for the captaincy role.

Well, apart from these factors news coming from various sources is that RCB management already decided their captain and he is Faf du Plessis, they are going to announce his name but let’s wait for official announcement.Cheers.!
