RCB skipper Virat Kohli has decided to step down as the captain of the side after IPL 2021. Ahead of RCB’s opening game against KKR, Kohli made the statement official. RCB has lost back to back games in the UAE leg and despite that are in the top half of the points table.

Meanwhile, former Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar has revealed his picks as the next RCB skipper after Kohli’s tenure. Manjrekar feels the think tank has to look at the future and appoint someone who can give his all for at least three-four years.

“How many years could you get out of AB de Villiers as the captain? So I would like to have someone who has at least three years to offer,” Manjrekar said in an ESPNCricinfo video.

Sanjay Manjrekar Thinks Suryakumar Yadav Can Lead RCB With Virat Kohli As Player

Manjrekar said Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav and David Warner can be the three contenders RCB could look at as their new captain in the post-Kohli era.

“Pollard is one guy who has the leadership qualities. Suryakumar Yadav and David Warner are my three contenders,” Manjrekar added.

With a mega suction scheduled ahead of IPL 2022, Sanjay Manjrekar feels that RCB should identify personnel who can replace Virat Kohli as the skipper of the side.

Virat Kohli opened up on back to back losses against KKR and CSK. While he said that 92 against KKR was an aberration, against CSK he felt that they needed 15-20 more runs with the bat.

“The wicket did slow down a bit. But I feel we left out 15-20 runs out there. 175 would’ve been a winning total. Didn’t bowl consistently. Didn’t show that much courage I guess with the ball.”

“Got to get on that winning run again. This one is a bit more disappointing. The first one we just weren’t in the game. Have to show more courage in crunch moments. This tournament goes by quickly,” he added.
