What went against Glenn Maxwell was his unavailability in the first three matches in IPL 2022. Despite not being named in the white-ball series against Pakistan, Cricket Australia barred all centrally contracted players from competing in the IPL until April 5, meaning the NOC will only be applicable from April 6.

That meant, Faf du Plessis got the nod. The former South African skipper has vast experience of captaincy having led the team in all three formats including in the World Cup. At Chennai Super Kings, Du Plessis was a guaranteed starter and he will have his place sealed in RCB’s Playing XI as an opener, opening the door to take over the charge.

RCB Captain IPL 2022: Why Faf du Plessis looks ideal choice for RCB captaincy?

  • Faf is the only option after Virat Kohli with captaincy experience in international cricket.
  • A prolific in-form opener, Faf du Plessis will be one of the first names on the team sheet.
  • Having retired from international cricket, he will also be available for the entire duration of IPL 2022.
  • The other option was Glenn Maxwell who was considered at first but he will be unavailable in the first few matches. The Australian will be only available from March 12 after serving five-day quarantine following the Pakistan tour.
  • Dinesh Karthik was the other option especially due to his inputs from behind the stumps. But under his leadership, KKR struggled and he stepped down midway through the season in IPL 2020.
