According to sources, former South African player Faf du Plessis is expected to be chosen as the next captain of RCB. The franchise paid Rs. 7.25 crore for Faf du Plessis at the IPL 2022 mega auction. Du Plessis has extensive experience as a captain of international teams, but no IPL captaincy experience. Du Plessis played with Chennai Super Kings for most of his IPL career, when he was coached by MS Dhoni.
