After the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Virat Kohli announced to step down as the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kohli could not make RCB an IPS winner under his leadership. Kolkata Knight Riders defeated RCB in the Eliminator of IPL 14. Former England captain Michael Vaughan feels that after Kohli, England vice-captain Jos Buttler should be named as their next captain by RCB. He said that he sees a glimpse of Dhoni inside Butler. Jos Buttler was a member of the Rajasthan Royals team in IPL 2021. However, he did not take part in the UAE leg.
Butler said in a conversation with Crick Buzz, ‘Let me tell you all one name. This name is out of everyone’s mind. He is from a different franchise and his old team may retain him but I will pick Jos Buttler as the captain. He has great potential like captain Dhoni. I have no doubt about this. He further said that he is playing for England under the leadership of Eoin Morgan. He is technically a very good driver. But personally I would like Butler in the RCB camp. I will put him in the role of wicketkeeper and ask about the captaincy.
It is worth noting that Virat Kohli had announced before the second phase of IPL 2021 that this would be his last Indian Premier League season as captain. But with this, he had made it clear that as long as he plays in the IPL, he will only play for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Earlier, Virat Kohli had announced to leave the captaincy of Team India’s T20 team after the T20 World Cup.
