BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has always been a fan of Rohit Sharma’s captaincy and this fact is no secret. Rohit Sharma took over from Virat Kohli as India’s all-format captain by the beginning of 2022. Since then, India is yet to lose an international series under Rohit.
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday termed Rohit Sharma a “laid-back captain” and said the Mumbaikar should be given some time to produce results. Ganguly was impressed by Rohit, who has won a record five Indian Premier League (PL) titles for Mumbai Indians, and said he should be given a longer rope before being compared with the likes of the great MS Dhoni and Kohli.
“Rohit Sharma is obviously a bit laid back who takes things in a very calm and cautious way and not someone who’s into your face all the time,” Ganguly said during the Bengal Peerless event on ‘Leadership in Modern India’. The former captain was replying to a query on the crop of Indian leaders since he called it quits.
“India has produced some great captains over the years. MS Dhoni handled the transition fantastically and continues to bring accolades not just for India but his franchise (Chennai Super Kings).
“Then came Virat Kohli who also has a fantastic record. He was a different sort of captain, he did things differently.
“Every individual is different but what matters is the result and how many wins and losses you have. I don’t compare captains, everybody has their way of leadership.
