4. Rohit Sharma’s better record as a captain
Table Of Content
In 2013, Rohit was appointed the captain of Mumbai Indians. Since then the franchise has won 4 titles and has become the most successful team in the history of IPL. As a result Rohit’s captaincy stats has also increased.
In international scenario, captain Kohli has led the team to 56 wins in 77 ODIs and 12 wins in 22 T20Is. On the other hand captain Rohit has led India to 8 wins in 10 ODIs and 12 wins in 15 T20Is.
Comparing the win ratio, one can easily say Rohit is the better captain. Rohit has an analytical mind and is known for his planning and vision. He has also shown immense maturity on the field and will be India’s best option regarding captaincy in shorter formats.
5. India’s T20 World Cup preparations in 2020
The 7th edition of the T20 World Cup will be hosted by Australia in 2020. The World Test Championship has already begun in August. As a result it might be the best time for India to implement the split-captaincy method.
Kohli can lead the Test team while Rohit can be the limited-overs skipper, especially in the T20Is. India will play close to 20 T20Is before the World Cup, which would be ample time for the new captain.
After the 2013 Champions Trophy win, India has failed to win any ICC trophy. A change in captaincy might do wonders for the team and this might lead their way to the ultimate success.
