New Delhi: IPL 2021 has once again been started in UAE. As soon as the tournament started, a big news was heard by the fans. Virat Kohli said that he will step down as the captain of RCB after this season. After this it is constantly being predicted who will become the captain of RCB after Kohli. Meanwhile, now former Team India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has named the three players who can become the captain of RCB in the coming time.
These three players can become the new captain
Manjrekar has named three players for the next captain of RCB. Surprisingly, the players whose names have been mentioned by Manjrekar have never played for RCB in IPL till date. Let’s take a look at the players whose names have been chosen by Pollard as the captain of Mumbai.
1. Kieron Pollard
Manjrekar sees West Indies limited overs captain and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard as the next captain of RCB. Pollard has captained Mumbai in several matches and has the experience of captaining the West Indies as well as the CPL.
2. Suryakumar Yadav
Manjrekar looks up to Mumbai’s star batsman Suryakumar Yadav as the next captain. Suryakumar Yadav does not have captaincy experience at all. But it has been a long time since he played the IPL. In such a situation, one also considers him as a contender for the post of Manjrekar captain.
3. David Warner
Manjrekar named David Warner as the third player. Warner was the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad but he is currently playing only as a batsman from this team. Let us tell you that in 2016, Hyderabad won their first IPL title by defeating RCB in the final under the captaincy of Warner.
Said this thing about de Villiers
Apart from this, he also named Virat Kohli’s partner and RCB’s legendary batsman AB de Villiers. But Manjrekar believes that de Villiers will not be able to captain RCB for long. So these three players are good options for captaincy.
