The 14th edition of Indian Premier League is only 8 days away from now and the fans are extremely excited about it. The mega tournament is finally returning to the home country in 2021 after it was conducted in UAE last year. With some new players, different jerseys, empty stadiums and lot more, everyone been made aware of all the changes that could happen this year.

However, there is a lot of ambiguity among the fans with regard to who could lead their sides in absence of regular skippers. Injuries are part of cricket and with the players in bio-bubble for so long, it is not an easy task for the players to be fit throughout the 2-month long tournament. Hence, we look at the list of possible players who can take over the leadership duties during the course of IPL 2021.

1. Kane Williamson - Sunrisers Hyderabad

The New Zealand skipper is undoubtedly one of the greatest leaders in world cricket right now. Williamson has captained the SRH side in past, famously leading the franchise to finals in IPL 2018. The 30-year-old has always stepped up in absence of regular skipper David Warner. With the Aussie coming on the back of a groin injury, he might miss a few games for his side if he is not 100% fit. However, the SRH fans can heave a huge sigh of relief as they have a deputy like Williamson available within their ranks.
