The month of December is fast approaching to the excitement of IPL fans who are eagerly looking to witness IPL 2020 Auction. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has always been the most anticipated team in IPL despite its continuous setbacks.

Players may replace Kohli captain. RCB in IPL 2020 Auction

Led by Delhi-born Virat Kohli, RCB never clinched a single IPL trophy in more than a decade long history of the popular tournament. Once the IPL season kick starts and RCB begins losing games, some people have it with them to criticize Virat Kohli for not showcasing potential captaincy skills.

Though it may be highly improbable for the RCB management to change the franchise’s skipper, let us take a look at top 3 contenders who may replace Virat Kohli as captain.

Parthiv Patel

Though it may sound a bit surprising, Patel has gained much acclaim to lead RCB for his notable contribution to the team. With 373 runs at the strike rate of close to 140, he proved to be the third-highest run-getter for RCB preceded by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.

Parthiv Patel's recent form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy has also been impressive with 5 half-centuries. His captaincy turned out to be the major driving factor for his performance in the domestic cricket which eventually qualifies him to lead RCB if Virat was replaced.

Tim Southee

Having won 7 out of 9 games as captain in T20Is for New Zealand, Tim Southee could definitely be one of the top choices to lead RCB. Southee might not have a good show for RCB in the past but his present form has all the reasons to place him in the spotlight.

AB de Villiers

Apparently, AB's performance had reached a new feat every time when had been a captain. He has an average of 63.91 in ODIs and 33.21 in T20Is as Captain. Therefore, it would not be a surprise if AB Devillers wears a captaincy hat for RCB.
