Cricket is probably the one sport where the captain has the biggest role to play. From deciding the batting lineup to preserving certain bowlers for the death overs to setting the field according to each bowler, a proficient captain can easily be the biggest reason behind his side’s success. Let’s rank every captain of IPL 2020 below.
8. KL Rahul – Kings XI Punjab
The newest captain on the block, KL Rahul has been a revelation in the Indian batting lineup ever since he replaced the injured Shikhar Dhawan at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. While he has only captain the Kings on one previous occasion, many have praised his overall leadership and how vocal he is.
