Captaincy – The burden which receives massive attention in the game of cricket. Over the years, the Indian cricket has come across the legendary skippers like Sourav Ganguly, Mohammad Azharuddin and MS Dhoni. However, of late, the notable names for the current generation are MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan makes his voice on captaincy styles of Rohit and Virat.
Virat Kohli has been exceptional for team India in all formats of the game. Virat Kohli led the team to memorable victories in the international arena with his astute captaincy. The latest to join him is Rohit Sharma, who got a decent record in captaincy chart and showed his calibre to the world.
Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli are two different characters – Shikhar Dhawan
Speaking of the duo, the flamboyant batsman Shikhar Dhawan quoted that both the players are unique in marshalling the troops. Dhawan cited that Kohli likes to lead the team from the front and very aggressive in his approach. And called Rohit Sharma a very strategic captain.
However, he made sure to involve his name linking to both skippers. Shikhar Dhawan revealed that Rohit Sharma will discuss plans with him while Virat Kohli discusses mostly with Rohit Sharma during the course of the game. He also feels that there is one year left for the grand event, for which, they have started preparations already.
“They are different characters. In different situations, they make different choices. Whatever they feel right at one particular moment, they go with it. They, of course, discuss with each other. When Rohit is leading, he discusses with me, when Virat is leading he discusses with Rohit and me too,” Shikhar Dhawan said.
“We’ve got one year. Whatever we have to plan we are planning it now and then only we can reach the final combination. I’m confident that this time we’ll come back with the cup,” Shikhar Dhawan said to Hindustan Times.
Well, despite many opinions, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has already confirmed that they are in no thoughts of splitting the captaincy between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
