Indian Premier League is considered one of the biggest leagues in the cricket world. When IPL started in 2008 with eight teams it was believed that this will be a normal league as Twenty20 Big Bash, which took place from 2005-6 to 2011-12. But no one would have thought how much popularity and class this league will earn. Nowadays IPL is the toughest cricket league in the world. Started with eight teams now the fifteenth edition of the Indian Premier League in 2022 has 10 teams. Two new teams have been added in IPL 2022 Lucknow Super Giants and Gujrat Titans named after cities Lucknow and Ahemdabad respectively.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have named Faf du Plessis as their captain for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Virat Kohlistepped down from the position at the end of the last season and it also coincided with him getting relieved of his international duties as the captain of the Indian team. Du Plessis is indeed an experienced campaigner having led South Africa from December 2016 (name all-format captain in August 2017) to February 2020.
