Top 4 Players who can replace Virat Kohli As RCB Captain
Virat Kohli, the current captain of Bangalore, relies on young players most of the time. If we talk about some of the key players on the RCB team, then young hitter Devdutt Padikkal comes out on top. Padikkal’s bat has made a lot of noise in the last two years, and if you look at that; the crew can show you the confidence of the captain. In the Indian Premier League, young players have always had opportunities and opportunities to live up to their responsibilities. In this sequence, Devdutt Padikkal can also replace Virat Kohli as RCB captain. In the 2020 IPL season, his racket made 473 runs, while his performance in the 2021 IPL was also outstanding.
2. AB de Villiers
AB de Villiers One of the RCB’s most trusted players and the legendary South African hitter AB de Villiers has pulled his team out of tough times on several occasions. De Villiers, popularly known as Mr 360, has many years of international experience and a good relationship with Virat Kohli. AB de Villiers was also the captain of the South African team. With this in mind, the franchise and management may hand over the captaincy to De Villiers in the near future. After that as captain, AB de Villiers has captained 103 ODI in Africa, winning 59 and 39 games respectively. In T20, he was captain of his country in 18 matches, of which he won 8 matches.
3. David Warner
David Warner Nothing is going well in this IPL for Australian player David Warner. He was released from the captaincy midway through IPL 2021, after which he too had to sit outside the eleven. However, next year the mega IPL auction is going to take place, where Warner will try to keep in touch with his team. It remains to be seen whether SRH management will decide for him or not. If Warner can’t join the Hyderabad team, the Bangalore team can track him down at the auction. However, Warner’s record as captain was excellent in the IPL. In addition, under his leadership, he managed to lead Hyderabad to the IPL title in 2016. Therefore, David has captained 69 games in the IPL, of which he has won 35 games.
Given his influence and his record as captain, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that he is a strong contender to become the captain of the RCB.
4. Quinton de Kock
South African starter Quinton de Kock has also made an excellent name for himself in the IPL. De Kock is currently one of the key players on his Mumbai Indians team. But some big teams could chase him at auction next year. With players like Rohit, Bumrah, Pollard on the MI team, the chances of him sticking around are very good. So, If you don’t get a spot on the Mumbai team, RCB would be happy to accept you. De Kock has the experience of dealing with the South African team, as he can also take his place as captain in the Bangalore team.
