    IPL Captains List

    Below is the list of every team and their probable captains for the upcoming IPL season.

    Team Probable Captain
    Chennai Super Kings Mahendra Singh Dhoni
    Royal Challengers Bangalore Virat Kohli
    Sunrisers Hyderabad David Warner
    Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma
    Rajasthan Royals Steve Smith
    Delhi Daredevils Gautam Gambhir
    Kings XI Punjab R Ashwin
    Kolkata Knight Riders Chris Lynn

    Kings XI Punjab Captain:

    KXIP has handful of players who are capable enough for leading their side.

    Recently, the team franchise has posted on their Twitter handle that their captain would be one among these five players – Yuvaraj Singh, R Ashwin, Axar patel, Aaron Finch, Chris Gayle.

    It should not be forgotten that Yuvaraj was the skipper of Punjab back in 2008. Axar Patel was the only player the franchise retained this year for Rs. 12.5 crores. Aaron Finch is currently the Vice-captain of Australian T20 team. Many people consider R Ashwin to be the trump card for the KXIP’s first IPL victory and there is no denying the pedigree of Chris Gayle as a player and leader. So, selecting a captain from these five is going to be really tough for the KXIP.

    Kolkata Knight Riders:

    KKR are still skeptical about selecting a skipper.

    It was a shock that KKR did not retain their skipper, Gautam Gambhir. And now, they do not have a steady name for the captaincy. The probable captains could be Dinesh karthik, Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine. Experts believe D Karthika and Uthappa would make great skippers given their IPL experience. Recently,

    Jacques Kallis, KKR coach revealed that Chris Lynn is one among their top picks as a captain. Lynn has also stated that he would be excited if gets to captain KKR.
