Faf du Plessis to lead RCB in IPL 2022
IPL 2022 marks the beginning of a new era in the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) camp with Faf du Plessis taking over the captaincy from Virat Kohli. Notably, Kohli had himself decided to step down at the conclusion of IPL 2021 citing workload management. While a few thought Maxwell could be the right successor to Kohli, the team management has gone ahead with du Plessis.
“The opportunity to be the captain of a franchise like RCB is massive and a role I was glad to accept… I can see that shift of Virat’s captaincy footprint in the Indian team. He built a competitive, fit side that was fighting fire with fire. His strong leadership rubs off on the young players and even if he is not the captain, the energy that he brings along to the team is hugely important for us. So we’ll be looking to try and use that as best as we can,” du Plessis said during the ‘RCB Unbox’ event where the announcement was made.
IPL 2022 is set to commence on March 26 with Bangalore scheduled to play their first match the next day – on March 27 against the Punjab Kings.
Royal Challengers Bangalore full squad: Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell (captain), Mohammed Siraj, Faf du Plessis, Dinesh Karthik (wicketkeeper), Anuj Rawat, Finn Allen, Akash Deep, Josh Hazlewood, Jason Behrendorff, Chama Milind, Karn Sharma, Harshal Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Shahbaz Ahmed, Mahipal Lomror, Sherfane Rutherford, Suyash Prabhudesai, Aneeshwar Gautam, David Willey, Luvnith Sisodia, Siddharth Kaul
