He is also the youngest captain of IPL 2020 but his calm nature great and leadership attitude will bring Delhi Capitals to the road of success in IPL 2020.
Shreyas Iyer Performance as Delhi Capitals Captain:
He only captained Delhi Capitals team in one season and in IPL 2019 he showed he has great ability to captain his team. After Gautam Gambhir was sitting out from the playing 11 in IPL season 12, Shreyas Iyer got the captaincy of his team and he did not disappoint anyone.
Delhi was struggling in the starting of IPL 2019 and even it was looking like DC can not qualify in playoffs but when Shreyas holds the captaincy, his team started doing wonder and started winnings games and Delhi qualified the IPL season 12 playoffs.
By looking at the previous season performance of DC, selectors will be happy with Shreyas Iyyar as captain of the DC team.

Rohit Sharma as Mumbai Indians Captain in IPL 2020
Rohit Sharma is the captain of Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020, the most successful IPL captain who won his team four times the IPL trophy, will MI can ever get captain like Rohit Sharma in the future? He is the best when it comes to captaining in T20 cricket and the MI team will always want to choose their captain as Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma Performance as MI Captain:
Winning IPL title is hard for any team and winning IPL title four times is unbelievable and Mumbai Indians have done this wonder in only Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
Rohit Sharma captained Mumbai Indians for 7 IPL seasons from the year 2013 to 2019 and 7 out of 4 seasons he won for his team that shows his incredible performance Mumbai Indians captain.
Last IPL 2019 season 12 winner was also Mumbai Indians and this season Rohit Sharma again ready for winning IPL 2020 trophy.
Virat Kohli as RCB Captain in IPL 2020
Virat Kohli is the captain of RCB in IPL 2020. RCB has declared they are not going to change their team captain and Virat Kohli will again lead RCB in IPL season 13.
Virat Kohli Performance as RCB Captain:
RCB’s performance in last IPL season is very disappointing, in the last season they didn’t even make their way in playoffs and everyone talk about Virat Kohli’s captaincy after it.
Virat has captained RCB in 7 IPL seasons from the year 2013 to 2019. RCB came in final of IPL only once in IPL 2016 in which match they lost by 8 runs against SRH.
After 2016, RCB didn’t even come in playoffs and that was really disappointing for the RCB fans as they don’t expect it from such a strong team having big names like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
But what I say is its not his captaincy that RCB showing poor performance in Indian Premier League, as you can see Virat Kohli is also leading Indian International cricket team and in recent times he has won big series for team India and now he became one of successful Indian team captain.
Not only your captain but It’s also your team and all coaches, who make you win a match and whole tournament, alone captain can’t win you the tournament. A captain can only guide his team in the right direction.
I think it’s all about the RCB team combination in which they are lack somewhere, they need to focus on this in IPL 2020. There is no doubt about Virat’s captaincy.
Steven Smith as RR Captain in IPL 2020
Steven Smith is the captain of RR in IPL 2020. After the ban in IPL 2018, Steven Smith got his captaincy of RR in IPL 2019, and he will continue also leading Rajasthan Royals in IPL season 13.
RR has released Ajinkya Rahane from their team in the Retaintation process of IPL 2020 and he was the captain of RR in absence of Steven Smith in IPL 2018.
Steven Smith Performance as RR Captain:
Steven Smith captained Rajasthan Royals for 2 IPL seasons in the year 2015 and 2019.
