Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has lauded Rohit Sharma, the current captain of the Indian team, following India’s convincing 100-run victory over England on Sunday, October 29, at BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
Rohit Sharma’s resolute performance at one end proved crucial as he notched up 87 runs, featuring 10 boundaries and three sixes, to steer India to a total of 230 runs, while the rest of the batting lineup struggled against England’s bowling attack.
Heaping praise on Rohit Sharma, Gautam Gambhir said that there is a difference between a captain and a leader, and Team India has seen many captains, but Rohit Sharma is a true leader who is very selfless.
Here’s what Gautam Gambhir told Star Sports:
“There is a difference between a captain and a leader. India has seen many captains, but Rohit Sharma is a leader, because he’s selfless.”
Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, has maintained a perfect record by winning all six of their matches in the ODI World Cup 2023. Their impressive form suggests they are on a mission to extend their winning streak and bring an end to their ten-year ICC trophy drought by winning the title.
