He denies my suggestions, says Virat Kohli on Du Plessis’ RCB captaincy

He denies my suggestions, says Virat Kohli on Du Plessis' RCB captaincy

The former captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Virat Kohli, has talked about his chemistry with Faf Du Plessis, who was appointed the team’s skipper ahead of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). He says that the Proteas denies his suggestions but he respects the new skipper’s decisions.

Notably, Kohli announced stepping down from RCB captaincy in the midst of the IPL 2021. He has led the red army since 2013 but could not win the maiden trophy despite being in the playoffs and final multiple times. Consequently, RCB bought Du Plessis and served him the role for IPL 2022.

Kohli commented that Du Plessis is always sure of his decision and does not entertain other person’s says. While talking on RCB Insider with presenter Danish Sait, he said,

“Faf (du Plessis) and I have always gotten along well, even when he was captain of South Africa. Faf is a guy who is sure of himself, and he has full authority on the field,”

“He tells me sometimes, if I mention things, that he doesn’t want to do that, which I respect a lot. That only makes you gain respect for the person you are playing under,”

Talking about another Proteas mate, AB De Villiers, whom Kohli has always gotten well along with, is likely to return to RCB next year as a coach. The former skipper said that he talks to Mr 360 on a daily basis.

“I miss him a lot. I talk to him regularly. He was in the US recently with his family watching golf… He is keenly observing RCB and hopefully, he will be here next year in some capacity,”
