4 IPL captains who are unlikely to lead in future editions

IPL 2024 could be the last season for these four players as IPL captains as it is possible that they will not lead the side in the next edition.

Leading a team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) is no easy feat. While many players have taken on the role of captaincy, only few have experienced success in the tournament. The IPL 2024 season is set to be crucial for four captains, as it could be a do-or-die moment for their leadership careers. Let’s examine four players who are unlikely to lead in future editions of the IPL.

Four IPL captains who might not be captain in next season

Pat Cummins SRH

Shikhar Dhawan

Dhawan has a very poor win percentage of 38.46 in the Indian Premier League, and he has failed to lead his team to the playoffs. If he fails to make a significant impact in this season of the IPL, it is possible that he could be sacked from the role of captaining the Punjab side.

Faf du Plessis

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have changed captains multiple times in past IPL seasons, yet they remain devoid of an IPL title. There were high hopes for Du Plessis, but unfortunately, he too has been unable to change RCB’s luck. This season could be the South African batter’s last chance to secure the title for RCB, as it is likely his final season.

Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya was traded from the Gujarat Titans before the IPL 2024 Auction. As he replaced MI’s most successful captain, Rohit Sharma, for the IPL 2024 season, Pandya did not receive a welcoming reception from the MI fans. After the fans’ reaction to Pandya’s captaincy, the team management may reconsider their leadership. Moreover, MI’s performance has been disappointing this season.

Pat Cummins

SRH had acquired Pat Cummins for a hefty sum of Rs 20.50 crore, consequently appointing him as captain, replacing Aiden Markram. Cummins carries numerous commitments as the skipper of Australia’s team. If Cummins fails to perform according to his valuation, the management could consider replacing him as captain. Additionally, franchises tend to avoid assigning leadership roles to overseas players due to the four-player rule.
