RCB’s New Captain Faf Duplessis Compares Himself To MS Dhoni

Royal Challengers Bangalore announced Faf Duplessis as the captain for IPL 2022. Duplessis was announced on behalf of the franchise on Saturday. In other words, this time, he will handle the leadership of RCB in place of Virat Kohli.

Last year, Kohli announced that he would no longer be the RCB captain from this season. After that, the speculation about who will be the new captain in place of Kohli was on its verge. The weight was heavier on Australian cricketer Glenn Maxwell. But in this auction, Bangalore bought Duplessis for six crore rupees. He was also in Chennai Super Kings till last year. After buying Duplessis, rumors started circulating that Bangalore had bought him to be the captain, and it came out as the truth.

Apart from Maxwell and Duplessis, former Kolkata Knight Riders captain Dinesh Karthik was also in the run for the captaincy. Because he has experience of leading in IPL, but in his place, the RCB relied on the former South African captain.

Duplessis Compares Himself To Dhoni

Royal Challengers Bangalore has bought Faf Duplessis for six crore rupees in this auction. He was named the new captain of the team in place of Virat Kohli before the start of the tournament. After taking the lead, Duplessis began comparing himself to former franchise Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He said that his leadership style is very similar to Dhoni’s.

Duplessis has played for CSK since 2012. He has also played for Rising Pune Supergiants under Dhoni. So he thinks Dhoni’s influence is more on him. “I’m lucky to have played under a lot of good captains,” Duplessis said. “First I got Smith in the South African team.

Later I saw Dhoni and Stephen Fleming in the IPL for ten years. The style of Dhoni and my captaincy is very similar. I keep both of them cool. “

However, Duplessis believes that the culture of captaincy in the IPL is different from the culture of South Africa. “The IPL is very different from the culture of captaincy in South Africa,” he said. “Dhoni’s style of leadership is completely different.

My thoughts have changed in the IPL environment. And this change has happened after seeing Dhoni. ” RCB will play their first match against Punjab Kings on March 26.
