Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina recently asserted that Rohit Sharma, the current Indian captain, is poised to follow in the footsteps of the legendary MS Dhoni. Raina’s statement came after Rohit led India to a significant Test series victory against England, accomplishing the feat with a match to spare.

Throughout the series, Rohit’s leadership skills garnered praise from several former cricketers, especially as he navigated the team through challenges such as injuries and absentees. Rohit’s captaincy was highlighted by his willingness to give opportunities to young talents, exemplified by the debut performances of players like Dhruv Jurel and Sarfaraz Khan.

Jurel’s standout performance in the fourth Test and Khan’s twin half-centuries in the third Test underscored Rohit’s astute selection and nurturing of emerging talents. The cricketing community commended Rohit for his adept management of the inexperienced team, guiding them towards victory.

Suresh Raina said: “He is the next MS Dhoni. He has done well. Rohit has been giving a lot of chances to youngsters the way MS Dhoni did. I played a lot of cricket under MS Dhoni. Sourav Ganguly supported his team a lot. Then MS Dhoni came and led from the front. Rohit is going in the right direction. He is a brilliant captain.”

“Rohit has been amazing with his planning. He has been giving a lot of chances to the youngsters. The way he is rotating the players is something I have never seen in the last couple of years. He brought in Siraj and Bumrah. He sent Bumrah back and managed his workload well and then handed debut to Akash Deep. Rohit has been handling the pressure and players really well.”

Ian Chappell, in his column on ESPNCricinfo, lauded Rohit’s leadership qualities, emphasizing that his captaincy often goes unnoticed. Chappell’s praise echoed the sentiments of many who recognized Rohit’s ability to lead and inspire his team.

Drawing parallels to MS Dhoni’s tenure as captain, Raina highlighted Dhoni’s legacy of nurturing young players and elevating the standard of Indian cricket. Having played alongside Dhoni extensively, Raina expressed confidence that Rohit is following a similar trajectory, demonstrating the same ability to handle pressure and mentor his teammates effectively.

Overall, Raina’s endorsement of Rohit Sharma as the “Next MS Dhoni” reflects the growing consensus within the cricketing community regarding Rohit’s leadership prowess and his potential to leave a lasting impact on Indian cricket, much like his esteemed predecessor.
