The Indian Premier League is to set to begin in less than two week’s time and the fans will once again get to witness finest talents from all across the globe. In T20 cricket, a leader makes as much difference as his players do. As a captain, you have to take quick decisions and be flexible in your approach. After all, it was Shane Warne’s leadership that made Rajasthan Royals champions in the first season and helped Adam Gilchrist to lift the trophy in the 2nd season despite Deccan Chargers finishing last in season 1. So, where do all the captains stand before the start of this season? What can we expect from them? Let’s find out:
1. Virat Kohli (9/10)
The Indian cricket team’s captain had an inhuman season last year where he scored 973 runs in 16 matches at an average of 81.08 and strike-rate of 152.03 including 4 centuries. This season Bangalore have strengthened the side by adding the likes of Tymal Mills and Pawan Negi to the team and would be hoping to lift the trophy that has evaded them for last nine years.
