Dubai: Rumors are rife that Royal Challengers Bangalore will step down as captain after the current season of the IPL. Kohli himself has already mentioned this. Kohli, who has led the RCB for years, has yet to lead the team to the title. It is reported that Kohli will step down even if he wins the title this time. Many former players have suggested that a young player should be made RCB captain after Kohli. Former India captain Ashish Nehra has said that he wants to select a captain who will lead the team in the long run. Nehra suggested that Malayalee and RCB opener Devadath Padikkal should be selected as the captain. Nehra said Devadas has the ability to lead the RCB. Muntaram also suggested that if the RCB has been looking for a captain for a long time, the captaincy should be given to Devadas. Devadatta, who has been in the IPL since 2020, has played in 26 matches so far. He has scored 822 runs in so many matches. This time he scored 390 runs in 13 games. His top score was 101 against the Royals. The RCB is already trying to find a replacement for Virat Kohli. It is reported that a star will be found for this in the mega auction. An attempt is being made to bring in Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul. If Rahul is not retained by Punjab, this Karnataka batsman could become the RCB captain. RCB, who are hoping to win the title, will take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the first eliminator on Monday.
