Out-of-favour The batter from South Africa known as Faf du Plessis heaped admiration on his teammate Virat Kohli, who is also a member of Royal Challengers Bangalore and was a former captain of the squad.
In response to a question on the nature of his relationship with Kohli as a player now that he has taken over as RCB captain from Kohli, the Protas star praised Kohli for his boundless enthusiasm and dedication to the sport of cricket.
Kohli, who had been given the role of permanent captain of the team in 2013, resigned from his position following the conclusion of the IPL 2021 tournament. In preparation for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League in 2022, RCB selected du Plessis to lead the team.
“He (Virat Kohli) is an alpha much to a greater degree than I am. You make no effort to compete with others. It seems that ego is the primary source of conflict between peacocks, doesn’t it? It’s the time of year when everyone gets their feathers out, and everyone wants to know who has the feather with the most glimmer in the room.
And as for myself, I think it’s a stroke of luck that I understand that regarding people and relationships “remarked du Plessis on the most recent episode of The Grade Cricketer’s Podcast.
“I don’t make an effort to overshadow anyone else in the locker room, which is especially important considering that I am the team captain. I make an effort to cultivate a relationship. In the case of Virat, that was precisely the point when I started, “including the South African ingredients in the batter.
In continuation of his remarks regarding the previous captain of the RCB, du Plessis said: “After playing against him for such a long time, I can say without a doubt that he is one of the most competitive players in all of cricket to go up against.
You’re thinking to yourself, “How can this guy have so much energy?” while you sit there. Every single time a wicket falls, like it doesn’t matter if it’s a number 11 or an opening batter, his zeal for celebrating is like you just have to go, “I’ll take my hats off to you.” Every single time a wicket falls, like it doesn’t matter if it’s a number 11 or an opening batter. He’s superhuman.”
