Aakash Chopra has suggested some names of cricketers who could be the next Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain in IPL 2022.

IPL 2021 was RCB’s last season with Virat Kohli at the helm. The Bengaluru-based franchise will now have to look for another skipper who can take them to their maiden IPL title.

Aakash Chopra: Virat Kohli Is A Ruler With No Kingdom In Royal Challengers Bangalore Camp In IPL 2022

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra pointed out that Virat Kohli could have been the RCB captain if he wanted to perform the role.

Aakash Chopra observed: “You have retained Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell and Siraj. Can any of them be the captain? Kohli could have been but he has said that he will not become the captain. In fact, now he is a ruler with no kingdom. He is the king of no kingdom at this point in time.”

After stating that he will step down as the captain of the Indian Team after the conclusion of ICC T20I World Cup 2021, Virat Kohli announced that he will also be stepping down as the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain after IPL 2021. Virat Kohli has been captaining the Royal Challengers Bangalore since the 2013 season in the IPL and he has led the franchise in 9 seasons so far.

The cricketer-turned-commentator feels the Royal Challengers Bangalore should not look at Glenn Maxwell as a captaincy option. Glenn Maxwell had a poor IPL outing in 2020 (for KXIP at UAE), managing just 108 runs in 13 matches averaging a pathetic 15.42. However, the big-hitting all-rounder was at his dangerous best in IPL 2021 for RCB scoring 513 runs averaging 42.75 in 15 games.

Aakash Chopra elaborated: “Can they think about Maxwell? Maxwell is a tempting option but he is also a volatile option. His performance was very good last year. In fact, RCB should pat their backs that they got such good performances from him. But could he be their captain? Tough choice, I won’t really go down that route.”

Glenn Maxwell was one of RCB’s star performers in IPL 2021. The franchise might not want to give him the additional burden of captaincy and instead let him concentrate on his batting.

Aakash Chopra: Shreyas Iyer And Jason Holder Are Captaincy Options for Royal Challengers Bangalore

Aakash Chopra reckons former Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer might not be a good captaincy candidate for RCB.

He reasoned: “Shreyas Iyer is an option. Bangalore can think about him but personally, he is not my No. 1 pick for Bangalore because the ground is not like that. He is a top-order batter and it will not work out if you send him below No. 4. You might not have a place till No. 4 as you have Kohli and Maxwell, and you are trying to bat Maxwell up the order.”

The 44-year-old believes Jason Holder could be the perfect fit as skipper for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Aakash Chopra explained: “They can either think about Maxwell or let me just throw a name here – Jason Holder. He is an unassuming character, does not impose himself, he is absolutely perfect for a franchise like RCB. He will play all the matches, he knows how to run a team and he will never take the center stage.”

Aakash Chopra also named keeper Ishan Kishan, opener Shikhar Dhawan and ex-SRH skipper opener David Warner as some of the other captaincy options for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. However, he added that the three-time finalists are unlikely to go with any of them.

Sunrisers Hyderabad eventually finished the league stage at the rock bottom of the table in IPL 2021, having won just three of their 14 games. This also saw SRH knocked out of the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. One of the positives in SRH’s terrible campaign was Jason Holder. Although the Caribbean all-rounder didn’t feature in all matches, he proved his mettle with both bat and the ball. Jason Holder picked 16 scalps in IPL 2021 averaging 15.44.
