3. Captain Rohit can complement Batsman Rohit
Rohit Sharma did not have a good IPL season this year as he had scored only 286 runs with an average of 23. However he has never been great in IPL as he has got only one 500+ runs season.
However when it comes to captaincy, he is one of the successful captain of IPL winning the trophy in three occasions, while his predecessors have failed to win even once.
While playing for the national side, he has an average of 54 as an opener but as a captain, he has a whopping average of 109. So it can be expected that in the absence of Virat, Rohit can not only lead the side but also dominate the opposition.
