Indian veteran off-spinner R Ashwin further showered praise on Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, and also opened up on his impact as the explosive opener in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023.
Notably, Sharma ended up scoring 597 runs from 11 matches — most by a captain in an ODI WC and was the second highest run-scorer for India.
“If you look at Indian cricket, everybody will tell you MS Dhoni is one of the best captains. Rohit Sharma is an outstanding person. He understands every single person in the team, he knows what each one of us likes and dislikes. He has a great understanding. He puts in the effort to know each member personally.”
“He puts in a lot of effort. Forgoes sleep and becomes part of meetings, he first puts in the effort. He makes an effort to understand how to explain tactics to each person. That’s an advanced level of leadership in Indian cricket.”
Rohit Sharma is expected to be next seen in the upcoming tour of South Africa.
