Trent Boult, a left-arm pacer from New Zealand, believes that India’s national team will do well under new white-ball captain Rohit Sharma.
Because the BCCI didn’t want to have two white-ball captains in the team, they decided to remove Virat Kohli from the ODI captaincy after he stepped down as captain in T20Is. In addition, Rohit Sharma, Kohli’s limited-overs deputy, has been given full white-ball leadership and has been named Test vice-captain.
Meanwhile, Boult, who played for Rohit in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with the Mumbai Indians (MI), has stated that the newly-appointed India white-ball skipper is highly experienced and that it will be exciting to see him lead the team. The left-arm seamer went on to say that he enjoyed playing under Rohit and that he used to stand at the boundary rope and observe his tactics.
“Rohit is a seasoned professional. The way he leads the Indian team will be fascinating to watch. At the Mumbai Indians, I had the pleasure of playing under his captaincy. While standing at the boundary, I used to observe him and his captaincy, as well as his tactics. Boult told Dainik Jagran, “He’s been an extremely successful player for India, and I’m confident the team will perform well under his leadership.”
Rohit Sharma has been a five-time winner of the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the captain of the Mumbai Indians, according to Boult (MI). He stated, “
“He’s had a lot of success with the Mumbai Indians, and there are a lot of high-pressure situations there.” As a pace bowler, I understand, but as a captain, he handles the pressure admirably. I am confident that Rohit will put his IPL experience to good use for the Indian team.”
Boult also stated that he is unable to comment on the leadership differences between Kohli and Rohit because he has yet to play under Virat Kohli. He stated, “
“I can’t say with certainty because I haven’t played a single game under Kohli, but he is a very powerful player and captain for India.” Rohit has the potential to be a great captain, and it will be fascinating to watch him lead.”
