Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra believes RCB made the right decision in selecting Faf du Plessis to lead the team

Du Plessis succeeded Virat Kohli as captain and guided the team to a third-place finish last year

Chopra voted in favor of du Plessis as RCB captain, saying "He is the only non-international active player whose stature has not gone down at all"

According to Chopra, du Plessis is the type of player who keeps the team ahead of himself and commands respect

Chopra credited RCB's recent successful run to their hot middle order, including Glenn Maxwell, Rajat Patidar, and Dinesh Karthik

The middle order has been key to RCB's success in the last few years, with players stepping up in crucial situations

Despite Kohli's subpar season, RCB made the playoffs last year thanks to contributions from players like Patidar, Karthik, Shahbaz Ahmed, and Mahipal Lomror

Chopra believes RCB will do well this year if their middle order performs, regardless of what happens at the top

Du Plessis is a solid choice for RCB captain and, with the support of his teammates, could lead the franchise to their first championship in IPL 2022.
