The Indian Cricket Team has been on a roll winning 3 matches so far. Former cricketer Amul Mazumdar spoke about Rohit Sharma’s captaincy as he performed brilliantly in the three group matches that India has played so far in the ongoing World Cup 2023.
Mazumdar said that the atmosphere created by Rohit Sharma with the team with simplicity in thought and execution plan. It has been a superb performance by Men in Blue so far defeating Australia by six wickets at Chennai, thrashing Afghanistan by 8 wickets at Arun Jaitley Stadium, New Delhi, and producing a dominating performance to defeat Pakistan by 7 wickets at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 14th October 2023.
“I want to highlight 3 things about his captaincy. The first one is, Rohit Sharma gives a lot of weightage and importance to data and statistics. This includes one of the most important parts of his planning; he believes that it is very important to know each minute’s details and statistics of all the opposition players.
The second one is, that he keeps things very simple and tries to make his team members think simply. He keeps everyone in the team in a very cool and calm atmosphere,” Muzumdar said while speaking exclusively to the Star Sports show, “Follow the Blues.”
He also made comments that Rohit Sharma has a magical touch in his captaincy. Under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians won 5 titles proving his worth as a captain. His performances in the ongoing World Cup 2023 as a captain have been spot-on.
With Pakistan in a good position at 155 for 2, he brought Siraj into the attack and delivered the goods for Team India dismissing Babar Azam. He decided to stick with Kuldeep Yadav to dismiss Saud Shakeel and Iftikhar Ahmed in the same over to leave Pakistan in trouble.
Rohit Sharma’s brilliance with bat
After a disappointing performance in the first outing against Australia, Rohit Sharma returned to form with 131 off 84 deliveries against Afghanistan and then hammered Pakistan bowling with 86 that laid the foundation for a dominating win.
The Indian team will next face Bangladesh in match number 4 to be played at MCA Stadium, Pune on 19th October 2023.
