1) Just take a look at the IPL ladder.. Of the top 4 teams, guess what they have in common? YEP , you guessed it!, each one of them has an indian player as the captain. not one team with an overseas captain is in the top 4. The only other team with an indian captain outside the top 4 is DElhi. Im sure there are reasons behind this, it is very hard for an overseas captain to come on and take charge of 7 indian players on the field, not an easy task, apart from Gilchrist, i have never seen any overseas captain do well in the IPL to date. While Vettori is a great captain, i think captaining 7 indian players is too much to ask from him.
2) Lets look at our own history, look back to when Pieterson was the captain, we lost terribly nearly every game, when Kumble was then made the captain, we started winning. and they both had the EXACT same team. what does this tell you? same thing, 7 indian players need an aggressive indian captain.
3) If we do have a captain, given we are dead last on the ladder, we need to pick an aggressive captain, someone really passionate, our only 2 potential captains are Kohli and Zaheer, but when i look at their passion on the field, only Kohli seems to be passionate, he is very animated in the field. Zaheer isnt, therefore Kohli should definetly get the task.
4) Jennings has already said Kohli will be future captain of RCB and India.. Jennings has obviously placed a lot of faith in Kohli, he always praises him and was the ONLY player retained by RCB, so given the state of our team now, why not go for it..make kohli the captain.
Im really not sure what all these high paid RCB coaching team is doing, why is it that they canot realise these basic things…
