AB de Villiers to captain RCB if Virat Kohli unfit for IPL 10
AB de Villiers to captain RCB if Virat Kohli unfit for IPL 10. AB de Villiers is likely to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore in the initial phase of Indian Premier League 10 in case Virat Kohli fails to recover from a shoulder injury. Regarding Kohli, RCB coach Daniel Vettori said, "Right now, we don't have a clear picture on his availability. We will know in the next few days. The likely scenario is that AB de Villiers will take over the duties, but we will answer that once we find out if Virat is out." The Indian captain will join the team on April 2, but his availability will depend on the health assessment of BCCI doctors and physios, Vettori said. He will come in on April 2. Between now and then, BCCI doctors and physio will speak to us and our medical staff will get a clearer picture," he said. Kohli hurt his right shoulder during the third Test of the series against Australia in Ranchi. Owing to these injuries, Sarfaraz Khan could get an opportunity early on in the tournament, for he has been really good this domestic season, Vettori said.
