Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India took a 2-0 lead in the Border Gavaskar Trophy.
New Delhi. Rohit Sharma’s journey as Test captain is looking good so far. He has captained Team India in four Test matches so far and has won all four. After winning 2-0 over Sri Lanka last year, Rohit Sharma has also made a 2-0 lead in the Border Gavaskar Trophy being played between India and Australia. There have been two matches of the 4-Test series between India and Australia and Rohit has won a resounding victory in both, but despite this, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir has given a big statement regarding the captaincy of ‘Hitman’.
Gautam Gambhir said on Star Sports, “Virat Kohli has done brilliantly whenever he has captained this Test team, but Rohit Sharma is following in his footsteps. To be honest, Rohit Sharma has not made any template of his own. The way Virat Kohli used to manage Ashwin and Jadeja, Rohit Sharma is doing exactly the same.
The former pacer raised questions on the inclusion of KL in the team, said – score runs in Indore, otherwise play county and…
Gambhir further said that Rohit Sharma’s real challenge will come outside Asia. He gave credit to Virat for making this team and claimed that he does not see much difference in what Rohit is doing. The former opener said, “The real challenge for Rohit Sharma will be when he goes to Australia, South Africa and England because there were big challenges for Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli has made this team – Mohammed Shami, Siraj, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ashwin, Jadeja, Akshar.
The former captain opened Australia’s pole-strip, selectively counted the mistakes, said – I am not surprised …
He further said, “Virat Kohli was equally successful. That’s why I don’t see much difference and I don’t even want to say who is the better captain in these conditions, because Virat was as good a captain as Rohit is now. Rohit’s challenge will be abroad.”
Please tell that till now Rohit Sharma has not captained Indian cricket in Test matches outside Asia. Due to Kovid-19, he could not play a Test match against England as captain. Then his finger was hurt against Bangladesh. Rohit Sharma was handed over the captaincy of the Indian cricket team after Virat Kohli stepped down from his post. Virat Kohli is India’s most successful test captain in history.
Talking about the real challenge of Rohit Sharma, he can be in the final of the ICC World Test Championship, because this final match is to be played in England. Australia’s team will play the final, the name of the second team is yet to be decided, but seeing the way India is playing in the Border Gavaskar Trophy, it can be expected that the ICC World Test Championship final will be between Team India and Australia. Will happen.
