New Delhi: Virat Kohli had announced to step down as Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper after the end of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 Phase 2. Kolkata defeated Bangalore in IPL Eliminator to shatter Kohli’s dream of leading the Red Brigade to their maiden title win.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan feels that after Kohli, England vice-captain Jos Buttler should be named as their next captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). He said that he sees a glimpse of Dhoni in Butler. Jos Buttler part of the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2021. However, he did not make himself available for the UAE leg.
“It’s just that who’s got the character and personality to go in there and captain Virat Kohli, and that’s got to be a skillful person, who knows himself, knows T20 cricket very cleverly, knows how to manage people and particular someone like Virat Kohli. Once you are the captain, now you are just in the ranks and be that senior player,” Vaughan said on Cricbuzz.
“I will throw you a name. This name is out of the box. He’s from another franchise and he may retain him but I would choose Jos Buttler to go there and be the captain. He’s got it in him to be like MS Dhoni. I have no doubt about him.”
“He’s been playing for the England side under Eoin Morgan. Tactically very astute. Again, I don’t know what Rajasthan are thinking of doing with him. But I would personally take Buttler to the RCB camp, put him behind the stumps and ask him to captain,” added Vaughan.
After RCB’s heart-breaking loss to Kolkata in Eliminator, Virat Kohli during the post-match press conference had said that as long as he plays in the IPL, he’ll continue to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
