Kumble to continue as RCB skipper

“Anil has been successful in the past and he would continue as the captain,” Mallya said.
Meanwhile, IPL commissioner Lalit Modi said he had expected Morgan, along with Kieron Pollard and Kemar Roach, to attract multiple offers and go into the Silent Tie-Breaker.

“I thought they are the three players who would go to the tie-breaker. It was surprising that Roach didn’t while Shane Bond did and Bangalore got Morgan which was a steal. More so because only this morning we got the confirmation that Morgan will be available for the full IPL and not just half of it,” Modi said.

Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Jay Mehta announced  that the outfit had dumped the multiple-captain theory of former coach John Buchanan and Sourav Ganguly would lead the side.

Kings XI Punjab co-owner Preity Zinta said Yuvraj Singh would continue to remain a key player despite losing the captaincy to Kumar Sangakkara. “Yuvraj is very, very essential part of the team and one of the top players. We went for a little bit of change amicably but surely we are not the only team that changed captain,” she said.
