Why Virat Kohli is the Captain of RCB in Today’s Match Against Punjab Kings?

In the 27th match in IPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore took on Punjab Kings. Faf du Plessis – the Bengaluru franchise’s captain – was expected to be present for the toss along with PBKS skipper Sam Curran. However, this did not happen. Virat Kohli was the one to do the toss. It was a surprise to everyone, as Kohli had renounced his captaincy by 2021.

Kohli didn’t waste any time in revealing the reasons behind the change of captaincy. Faf du Plessis, the stand-in RCB captain, said he would not be playing against PBKS because he injured his rib in a match against Chennai Super Kings. Du Plessis, who will be the Impact Player for the match against PBKS, will instead bat.

Kohli said during the coin toss that Faf could not be on the field today. He would then be playing an impact player and switching with Vyshak. The fans were not able to keep calm when they saw Kohli wearing the captain’s cap, even if only for a single match. Fans flooded Twitter with their reactions after Kohli was named RCB’s captain against PBKS.

RCB is off to a great start

Faf du Plessis, who had been invited to open the RCB innings by Curran after Punjab lost the coin toss, and Virat Kohli, the captain of the team, came out for their respective teams. As in IPL 2023 the duo got RCB started well. Kohli and du Plessis both scored 49 runs within the first five balls.
