Rohit Sharma Has Been A Great Leader So Far
Rohit, a three-time Indian Premier League-winning captain has been one of India’s most consistent performers across formats. More so in the limited-overs cricket, where he averages 49.3 in the ODIs with 9115 runs from 224 matches and has an average of 32.6 at a strike rate of 138.8 in T20Is.
The 42-year-old Wasim Jaffer, who made his Test debut for India in February 2000 hung up his boots in March this year, bringing an end to a stellar career.
Also, Jaffer featured in 260 first-class matches and amassed 19,410 runs at an average of 50.67, and vacated the chair as the highest run-getter from first-class matches held in India.
