Faf du Plessis has been named captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore for IPL 2022 during the RCB Unbox event in Bengaluru. 

The appointment puts to rest speculations that Virat Kohli, who stepped down as RCB's captain at the end of last season, will return to lead.

Du Plessis leaves behind Australian Glenn Maxwell and India’s Dinesh Karthik in the race, both of whom were strong candidates to lead the side.
