In Terms Of Performance, Captain Needs To Be At The Forefront – Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma added that the captain needs to be at the forefront when it comes to delivering a performance but in every other aspect the skipper needs to stand back.
“I feel the captain needs to stand at the back. He cannot be at the forefront. In terms of performance, he needs to be at the forefront, but in terms of everything else, he needs to be taking the backseat.”
“A captain looks good when the team performs well and bad or horrible when the team doesn’t. I don’t think that is the right way to look at it. The captain is there to make sure that the right players are playing and there are a few tactical things to look after,” he added.
