Cape Town: Bowing to Buchanan's multiple captains theory, Kolkata Knight Riders has appointed New Zealand wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum as the new captain for IPL season 2.

The team is scheduled to play its first match for the series on April 19 against Deccan Chargers, in which McCullum will lead the team.

Ganguly, who led the Knight Riders last year, was miffed after Buchanan announced that the Kolkata outfit would have multiple captains in the IPL this season.

Buchanan is expected to announce more names who will lead the team during IPL 2 as per the theory of multiple captains.
