TATA IPL 2022: RCB’s new captain Faf Du Plessis says; MS Dhoni & I, both are calm personalities, we have lots of similarities

Newly appointed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Faf du Plessis, all set to lead the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise for the first time, says his leadership style is very much like that of “Captain Cool” Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Du Plessis (37 years) has been a key part of Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings since 2012 and also played for Rising Pune Supergiant which is now defunct.

The former South African captain said on the franchise’s website, “I am fortunate to have played with some great captains in my journey in cricket. I grew up playing with Graeme Smith who is the best captain South Africa has ever had.

He said, “And then 10 years with MS and Stephen Fleming, both great captains. Du Plessis said, “I think there is a similarity in the way MS and I captaincy because we both have very calm personalities.

He said, “But the interesting thing for me is that when I started with Chennai, considering the captaincy culture in South Africa, I found MS opposite.

Du Plessis said, “And when I came here in such an environment, what I thought came out completely different.

He said, “I came to know again that there can be different ways of captaincy, but it is important to have your way.

Because when the pressure comes, your method helps. That’s why I can’t adopt Virat Kohli’s style of captaincy because I am not Virat Kohli.

I can’t even try to captain like MS Dhoni. Du Plessis said, “But I have learned some things which helped in my captaincy style.

I am thankful for this journey. MS (Dhoni) is a brilliant captain and has probably had more success than any other captain in the world.

It is an honour to be a part of this journey. RCB will start their IPL campaign against Punjab Kings in Mumbai on March 27.
