Virat Kohli has been appointed the new RCB captain. Kohli succeeds the highly respected and successful former RCB captain Daniel Vettori.

Kohli’s appointment follows a productive IPL 6 auction in which RCB strengthened their bowling line-up significantly and added capable all-rounders to increase the amount of flexibility in the selection of the playing squad.

Dr Vijay Mallya said, “We are delighted to announce Virat as our captain. His hunger to learn, lead, motivate and set an example is unquestionable.”

I thank the Owners for reposing their faith and I am looking forward to the challenge and the responsibility to carry the Team to greater heights.’
