Team Royal Challengers has announced New Zealand skipper Daniel Vettori as the captain of the team for IPL 2011.

Vettori led a spirited New Zealand team to the World Cup 2011 semi-finals, only to lose to Sri Lanka. He is one of the most respected captains in the world and was praised for his leadership skills in the World Cup quarterfinals against South Africa which the Kiwis won by 49 runs.

Royal Challengers was led by Anil Kumble for the last two seasons when they finished as runners up and the third best team in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Kumble has now moved to the position of Chief Mentor of the team and will form a lethal combination with Vettori to bring in more success this year.

An elated Team Royal Challengers Chairman Dr Vijay Mallya said, “We are very excited for the upcoming season. Vettori is a highly experienced and respected leader and we hope to ride to the pinnacle of success this IPL under his leadership.”

Director of Royal Challengers Sports Pvt. Ltd, Sidhartha Mallya said, “It is wonderful that we have somebody of his stature to lead our team this year. He is the ideal person to fill Anil’s shoes and I wish him the very best in this endeavour. I look forward to supporting him in his efforts towards a successful season.”

According to the Chief Mentor of Royal Challengers, Anil Kumble, “Vettori is a hugely respected professional not only within his team but amongst his international peers as well. His unique ability to get players to perform as a unit and deliver more than just the sum of their parts, as he has done time and again with New Zealand, will be a big asset to any team”

Ray Jennings, the coach of the Royal Challengers feels that “Vettori, is also probably the best spinner in the world at the moment and brings in tremendous skills that will be extremely useful on the Indian pitches. We hope that he will inspire the young Royal Challengers as much with his performance as with his leadership skills in the upcoming season”.

Ofcoz Daniel Vettori deserve to be the captain..With his Experience in cricket field how can we elect other player as the captain of the team...Its about respecting his seniority and he is a well deserving Player...Even though i personally wanted Virat to be the captain of RCB, but then i thought about all dis and now i saw its a right decision.....I hope we RCB will rock d field!!
