'After Kohli, this former player of RCB can become the captain of this team, it is not right to give this responsibility to AB'
Virat Kohli has announced that he will not captain RCB after IPL 2021. Although he will continue to play for this team and the franchise has also made it clear that Virat Kohli will be associated with this team as a senior player. Now there is a mega auction to be held next year as well and in such a situation there is every possibility that the team will change completely, but the question comes again as to who can be the captain of the team. Although RCB will add players to the team afresh and one of them will be the captain of the team, but former fast bowler Dale Steyn told about who he could be.
Talking about who can be the captain of RCB, Dale Steyn said that KL Rahul will be bought by RCB in the next auction and he can become the captain of this team. Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, Dale Steyn, while reacting to the captaincy of RCB, said that if this team wants a captain who can lead the team for a long time, then he should look inside his own border. The one name that is making me click is former RCB player KL Rahul. It seems to me that next year he will return to RCB and can captain the team.
Steyn said that I do not think it would be right to make AB de Villiers the captain because at this time his cricket career is nearing its end. Although he is a great player as well as a good leader. Let us tell you that, KL Rahul was associated with RCB in his initial days of IPL, but due to injury he was out for one season and then RCB released him. KL joined RCB in 2016 and had a great opening batting with Virat Kohli. In the year 2017 season, he could not play due to injury and then RCB released him in 2018.
After this, Punjab Kings included him in their team by paying Rs 11 crore. Then in the year 2020, he was made the captain of Punjab. KL Rahul is currently the captain of Punjab and it seems unlikely that this team will release him under any circumstances. Despite this, Dale Steyn is confident that KL Rahul can return to RCB and can also be made captain.
