The South African batsman Faf Du Plessis has now been given the charge of captaincy for this season. The team management of Royal Challengers Bangalore has announced this news to the media.
Faf Du Plessis: The New Face of RCB
Royal Challengers Banglore were searching for a new captain for their team as their former captain Virat Kohli stepped down from the captaincy in 2021. The mega auction went really well for the RCB as they bought Faf to fill the captain’s vacant space for this 2022 IPL season.
The destructive opener and a world-class batsman Faf Du Plessis who was one of the key players for Chennai Super Kings in many IPL seasons is now a part of RCB for this season. No doubt Fab is an outstanding player but it will be interesting to watch him as the leader of RCB in this IPL 2022 season.
The captaincy will not be a new thing for Faf as he is also the former captain of the South African men’s team.
