2. AB de Villiers - Royal Challengers Bangalore

The South African has played a key role in the leadership group of RCB throughout the years. AB de Villiers has always lend a helping hand to skipper Virat Kohli, whether it is while batting or wicketkeeping. However, he could also be the man to lead the side if in case King Kohli is unavailable for any game during IPL 2021. While RCB fans would certainly want 'Super V' not to miss any game, they would be happy that the franchise has an extremely successful leader in ABD to fill in that role.
