IPL Season2 2009: Royal Challengers Dravid as Captain

RCB open to Dravid as captain

South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis is apparently not the favourite to lead the Royal Challengers Bangalore once Kevin Pietersen leaves, if their fiery coach Ray Jennings is to be believed.
Jennings felt that with Kallis struggling with both bat and ball, the issue of Bangalore’s captaincy in IPL-2 was still open and there were number of candidates to take over the job.
“It is still open. I need to sit down and discuss with the management what we need to do. If Jacques plays, obviously he might be captain. But if he doesn’t play we have other guys like Boucher, Kumble and even Dravid (when he comes back) who are capable of leading the team,” Jennings was quoted as saying.
This contradicts an earlier announcement from team owner Vijay Mallya who had said that that Kallis would take over from Pietersen. Mallya had factored in Dravid’s likely absence from the Indian Premier League second edition to attend to his baby when he named Pietersen as captain instead of the former India skipper.
