Royal Challengers Bangalore looked in fine form in the IPL this year. Playing 7 matches in IPL 2021, RCB lost only 2. If IPL 2021 did not discontinue, RCB could have easily qualified for the playoffs. Virat Kohli was the captain of RCB in the IPL this year. There are rumors that RCB is looking for a potential new skipper for the IPL next season. That said, here are 3 players who could replace Virat Kohli in the IPL next season:

1. AB de Villiers

AB de Villiers is one of the players that can replace Virat Kohli as RCB captain in IPL next season. Before his international retirement, de Villiers was the captain of the South African national team. Hence, AB de Villiers has the experience necessary to captain a cricket team. AB de Villiers is one of RCB’s most crucial players in the tournament. It is highly likely that AB de Villiers could be RCB’s new captain in IPL next season.

2. Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell endured a brilliant outing with RCB in the IPL this year. In 7 matches in the IPL this year, Maxwell amassed a total of 223 runs. The Australian cricketer boasted a superb batting average of 37.16 in the IPL this season. Maxwell has been a part of the IPL since 2012. Clearly, Maxwell has the experience of playing in the IPL and could lead RCB from the front in the IPL next year. Maxwell is another RCB player who has the potential to captain the side next season.

3. Devdutt Padikkal

Another potential candidate to replace Virat Kohli as RCB captain is Devdutt Padikkal. In just 6 matches in IPL 2021, Padikkal racked up an impressive 195 runs in total. Padikkal also finished as RCB’s highest run-scorer in the IPL last year. In just 15 matches in IPL 2020, Padikkal smacked an impressive 473 runs in total.
