Former England National Cricket Team spinner Graeme Swann has backed India National Cricket Team skipper Rohit Sharma to deliver brilliant performances for the Men In Blue in the forthcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which is the eighth edition of the multi-nation tournament, is scheduled to be played from October 16 to November 13. India will lock horns with arch-rivals Pakistan in their tournament opener on October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Meanwhile, former England National Cricket Team spinner Swann stated that the added pressure of captaincy is not the reason behind Rohit’s struggle to score big runs consistently in recent times.
“It’s just form. When you play cricket, this gets thrown around a lot, the captaincy pressure and everything. People used to talk about Virat at RCB. As a batsman, you are not thinking about captaincy when you go out and bat, you go out with a clear mind and focus on the ball,” Swann told Sports 18.
I have no worries about Rohit Sharma. He is the right man to lead – Graeme Swann
The 43-year-old further said that Rohit’s form is not a concern for the Men In Blue heading into the ICC Men’s T20 World 2022 and backed the Indian skipper to smash his 5th T20I century in the multi-nation tournament. He also said that Rohit is the right man to lead the India National Cricket Team.
“Rohit is definitely the player who will get a hundred in the T20 World Cup. I have absolutely no doubt about it. I have no worries about Rohit Sharma. He is the right man to lead, and he has not been in his best form, but India are consistently posting big scores,” he added.
