After deciding to resign as India’s skipper in the T20Is post the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli shook his fans by announcing yet another resignation on September 19, 2021. Ahead of RCB’s first game in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Kohli added he would step down from captaincy after the current season but will continue playing for the franchise till his end days.

As the celebrated skipper moves away from his role, it certainly becomes a talk of paramount importance as to who will lead the team now? As IPL 2022 will also see mega auctions ahead of it, a lot of incoming and outgoing players would be observed, and here stand a few players who can lead RCB in the next season.

There are few names who always remain synonymous to the franchises and South African superstar De Villiers is the one for RCB. Pulling the team out of crunch spots for years, the stunning batsman has done just a commendable job for the team.

Apart from scoring runs, he stands to be one of the most experienced players of RCB who shares a great bond with the current skipper too. If Kohli has decided to step down, there cannot be a better person than Mr 360 to handle the team.

Having experience of captaining his national team across formats, the decision of RCB’s management to give ruins of the team to him would absolutely be spot on.
