Dravid may lead Royal Challengers

Durban: Royal Challengers coach Ray Jennnings said that captaincy options are open when Kevin Pietersen leaves the Bangalore team  after their next game against Kolkata on Wednesday.

" It is still open," Coach said. "I need to sit down and discuss with the management what we need to do."

Jennings had earlier announced that South African all rounder Kallis as the next captain of Royal Challengers.

Bangalore team owner Vijay Mallaya had earlier said that Kallis would be take over the reins from Pietersen.

Jennings is not happy to handover captaincy to Jacques Kallis as he is struggling to find form in IPL.

"If Jacques plays, obviously he might be captain," Jennings said. "But if he doesn't play we have other guys like Mark Boucher, Anil Kumble and even Rahul Dravid, who are capable of leading the team.

Bangalore are currently last on the IPL points table after four losses in five games.

"I'm disappointed with the results like everybody else from Bangalore," he said. "I'm disappointed in the performance of some of the players.

"I don't think too many players have risen to the occasion in one game. That goes to everybody. There are not too many players who have walked away with results that would make an impact on the field."
