Daniel Vettori believes that Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) should now look for a new captain to replace Virat Kohli. He stated, “I believe the franchise will move forward with Kohli.” Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis, and even Dinesh Karthik will be scrutinised. Faf, I believe, will be given the captaincy for the first three matches. If he wins all three of these matches, the franchise will keep him on the roster. Otherwise, after Maxwell’s return, he could be promoted to captain.
Let us remind you that Virat Kohli stepped down as captain of the Indian Premier League last year. He will now be seen as a participant in this tournament. McSwell, on the other hand, will miss the first few games of the 15th season. On March 26, the first match of the IPL will be played.
