Virat Kohli, after playing Tests under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, will play under the captaincy of Faf du Plessis in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has chosen their new captain. According to RCB sources, du Plessis is almost certain to become the captain.
The name of du Plessis has been stamped. The name of Glenn Maxwell was also discussed with him, but in the end the name of du Plessis was agreed upon. According to sources, former captain Virat Kohli also agrees on his name. Soon RCB can announce the name of du Plessis.
Because of this the seal on his name
Faf du Plessis is considered a T20 specialist batsman. He has also captained South Africa in international cricket. For Africa, he captained 37 T20 matches and won 23 matches, lost 13 and tied 1 match. Faf has a win percentage of 63.51. On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell will not be able to play in the opening matches. Because of this also he lagged behind du Plessis.
Virat had left the captaincy
After leaving the captaincy of Team India’s T20 last year, Virat Kohli also left the captaincy of RCB after the end of IPL Phase 2. Kohli had given the reason behind this to focus on batting. He wanted to reduce the workload on himself. Kohli became the captain of RCB in the 2013 season, but even once under his captaincy, the team could not win the IPL title. In 2016, the team had reached the final, but the team could not win the trophy.
