Bangalore: RCB’s team has now given an answer as to who will lead the team after Virat Kohli. So now the RCB team will be in the IPL with a new captain.
After Virat, there was a lot of discussion about who will be the captain of RCB. Many then named Faf du Plessis of South Africa. Faf has the experience of captaining South Africa. Because he had led the African team for a long time. Therefore, he was considered as the right candidate for the RCB captaincy at the present time. The RCB’s team management has also sealed the deal, with Faf taking over the reins and being given the captaincy.
Until now, Virat was the captain of RCB. But under Virat’s leadership, RCB has never won an IPL title. Therefore, there was talk last year that Virat would be removed from the post of RCB captain. But before that, Virat decided to leave the captaincy of the RCB team and announced that he would leave the leadership of the team when the IPL was over.
The Leader of the Pride is here!

So this year, there was a lot of discussion about who will be the captain of RCB. It was only when the RCB team picked Faf in the auction that many thought he would be the next captain after Kohli. This was finally sealed today. Earlier in the IPL, Faf was an integral part of the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings team.
But the Chennai team did not retain Faf and he had to go to auction. Faf has played an important role for Chennai many times, as well as giving Chennai a one-sided victory. Faf has a wealth of experience in international cricket, as well as captaincy. So for RCB at the moment it is the best option for the captaincy. But it looks like the RCB will have to pick a new captain in a few years. Because I don’t think Faf will play cricket for long
