His Record Speaks For Himself: Nasser Hussain on Rohit Sharma

“His captaincy, he is calm, cool, makes the right decisions at the right time and he has had such a good time with MI that there are various cricketers around the world now, including in India, saying that maybe it is time for Virat [Kohli] to step down from T20s and let Rohit take over.

Rohit is one of The Great White Ballplayers: Nasser Hussain
The former England skipper also labelled Rohit Sharma as ‘one of the great white-ball players’ while speaking on his record in ODIs where he has scored a record three double centuries.
