Veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has named three players who could potentially captain the teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

The Indian Premier League 2022 is reportedly set to begin on March 27. The 2022 edition of the IPL is all set to be a 10-team tournament as two new teams – Ahmedabad owned by CVC Capital and Lucknow owned by RPSG Group– are set to join the cash-rich league.

Also, the tournament is set to play in India across 4 venues in Maharashtra – the Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium and the MCA Stadium in Gahunje, behind closed doors.

The Indian Premier League 2022 mega auction is set to take place on February 12 and 13 and ahead of the mega auction, the eight original IPL franchises had announced their list of retained players and most of the teams have already got captains. However, teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will be looking for a skipper at the auction.

Notably, Virat Kohli had stepped down as RCB skipper and Eoin Morgan and KL Rahul were not retained by KKR and PBKS ahead of the mega auction.

If you go by recent history, obviously David Warner, He has captained a franchise – Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik named Australian David Warner and Pat Cummins as two potential captaincy choices.

If you go by recent history, obviously David Warner. He has captained a franchise, he’s available. If you go by the current international standards, Pat Cummins. He is put his name in so he obviously has an opportunity to be a captain if he goes to a franchise that believes he could be a captain,” said Karthik on Cricbuzz.

Dinesh Karthik added that former Mumbai Indians wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan is also a good choice as he has led the U-19 and Jharkhand teams.

“If you throw an outside name, obviously Ishan Kishan has led the U-19s. He has led Jharkhand. So, they seem as an option,” said Karthik.
