Rohit Sharma has been named as the new Test captain for Team India on Saturday. Rohit has to fit in the shoes of Virat Kohli, who has taken India to a higher space in Test cricket. Rohit is one of the seniormost players in the team at the moment and is leading Team India in ODI and T20 format, so making him a Test captain is a very good move by the BCCI. One captain in all formats is always a good move.
Rohit is a very good team player. A very stylish batsman and a street-smart cricketer. He has been leading his Mumbai Indians team for many years successfully. He can show his leadership skills now at the international level.
Having Rahul Dravid as a head coach is an advantage for him. Both of them are very compatible with each other and that is what is very important for the Indian dressing room. Rohit like his predecessors Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat has an eye for picking young cricketers.
He encourages them a lot. We have seen him in the T20 matches against the West Indies. He backed young and talented debutant Ravi Bishnoi and he performed as per his expectations. That’s what the strength of Rohit. is. He has shown his mental strength in the second T20 game against the West Indies, where he snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at the last moment by backing up his bowlers.
We hope Rohit will become a very successful captain as he goes ahead. Those who are comparing Rohit with Virat should know that Rohit is cool and calm, unlike Virat. So, there is no point of comparing him with Virat. Both are two different individuals with different skills and personality.
