Royal Challengers Bangalore have named Faf du Plessis as their new captain. Hence, all the teams now have a captain and the focus shifts to the season opener of March 26th. Meanwhile, the Chennai Super Kings fans reacted to the appointment of their former player Faf as RCB’s new skipper. In this article, we take a look at how fans of CSK reacted to Faf getting appointed as RCB captain for IPL 2022.
RCB names the new skipper
In the UAE leg of IPL 2021, Virat Kohli had announced that he would not captain the franchise from IPL 2022. From then on, there has been constant speculation about who will replace Virat. After the IPL 2022 Mega-Auctions ended, the names that emerged included Faf du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik apart from Glenn Maxwell. Eventually, it was the South African who was picked for the role.
Faf du Plessis has led South Africa in the past apart from a host of other T20 franchises. While he does bring experience, overseas captains have always been risky in IPL. However, from RCB’s point of view, Faf seems the best option. Since the team has some strong characters like Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, the South African’s stature will work well as the skipper of the franchise.
