The RCB named Faf du Plessis as their next skipper on March 12.
Virat Kohli is one of the most respected leaders of the game: Faf du Plessis
“Virat Kohli, just not for RCB but also for the international game, he is one of the most respected leaders of the game. Huge respect for what he has done with the bat in his hand but also from a captaincy perspective. He has changed Indian cricket and I have seen that over time, playing against India. I could see that leadership footprint in the Indian team. A competitive, fit team that was fighting fire with fire,” said Faf du Plessis while speaking at the RCB unbox event in Bengaluru.
“He has got an extremely strong leadership style. That is something that we will still need even if he is not being the captain, that energy that he brings to himself and also for the team is hugely important for us. So like that, we will try and use that as best as we can”, he added.
