Kohli praises Rohit Sharma. Calls him “able captain” who takes ‘tactical-decisions’


It has been an eventful year for Indian Cricket. Speculations were always rife that the dressing room environment was not ideal and that the boys were mostly at the side of Rohit Sharma. India was not able to win an ICC event this year and with the stepping down of Virat Kohli from the T20, it was always a matter of time before the ODI captaincy would be taken away from.

Speaking in the press conference, Kohli was asked about the elephant in the room, i.e. his equation with Rohit Sharma. The former captain clarified that Rohit Sharma has the full support of him and that he is someone who is a ‘very able captain’ and takes ‘tactical decisions’. Kohli also said that he has been hearing about the rifts between him and Sharma for two and half years and has clarified time and again that there is nothing wrong between the two.

Kohli said, “Rohit is a very able captain, a very tactically sound captain. We have seen that in the games for India and in the IPL as well,”

It has been a long time since we have seen Rohit and Virat talking about each other. A few days ago, Rohit talked about the legacy of Virat Kohli and that he was someone who always led the team from the front with grit and determination. It was Virat turn’s today and he said that Rohit’s IPL records speak about his captaincy and decision making.

The Indian Cricket this year has seen lots of highs and lows. The team won the famous victory at Gabba and the series too. India defeated England comprehensively in the home test series. India however lost the World Test Championship final against New Zealand. The team is on the verge of defeating England in their own backyard with the series poised at 2 -1. . There were few surprises when Ashwin was not in the playing eleven for the English series in England. India lost their World Cup campaign and got defeated by Pakistan for the 1st time in WC history. Then it was the departure time of Ravi Shastri under whom India has enjoyed phenomenal success over the years.

Now with the new partnership of Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma, India will look to get their hands on the ICC trophy. India last came close to winning an ICC trophy back in 2017 champions Trophy and the 2019 World Test Championship final.
