IPL 2022: Faf du Plessis named as RCB captain

Royal Challengers Bangalore has announced that Faf du Plessis will be leading their side in the upcoming edition of the IPL. The former South African Captain will replace Virat Kohli as the team’s captain. Kohli had stepped down from the role after the end of the last season.

“I can’t be happier for the team and Faf. He is a good friend and we get along very well. Looking forward to a good season,” said Kohli.

This will be Faf du Plessis’s first captaincy assignment in the IPL while he will become the 7th player to captain the Bangalore side.

Du Plessis has featured in 100 IPL matches, scoring 2935 runs at an average of 34.94 and a strike rate of 131.08, with 22 half-centuries.
