IPL 2 :Anil Kumble the new captain of Royal Chalengers

Anil Kumble has been declared the new captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).Kevin Pieterson the RCB captain who has to turn back to national duty for the Ashes has left the RCB team.So the RCB team was in search of a new captain.The strong contenders for the race were

1) Kallis

2) Rahul Dravid

3) Anil Kumble

Since Kallis is not in the best of the form and Rahul Dravid has gone to India to see his wife who is about to conceive her second baby.Rahul Dravid has not given the return of his exact date hence Anil Kumble has been named the captain of RCB for IPL 2.

Anil Kumble was preferred against Kallis becuase of the respect that Kumble commands from this RCB team and his in a great form with the ball.In the opening match he scalped 5/5 against Rajasthan Royals to tame the Rajasthan Royals.
