Sunil Gavaskar's scathing assessment of Rohit Sharma's captaincy, "Expected More From Him,"
Sunil Gavaskar questioned Rohit Sharma's leadership and claimed that he had not lived up to his reputation as one of the Indian Premier League's two most successful captains (IPL).
Sunil Gavaskar, a legendary cricketer for India, expressed dissatisfaction with Rohit Sharma's leadership and claimed he anticipated more from him. India's national side has lost to Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) final and failed to get to the T20 World Cup final since Rohit took over as captain in place of Kohli. Gavaskar questioned Rohit's leadership in a recent conversation, saying that he had not lived up to his status as the co-most successful captain in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he had won five championships with Mumbai Indians.
I had higher hopes for him (Rohit). While things are different in India, success abroad is actually the true test. He has let us down a little in that regard. It has been disheartening not to make it to the finals, even in the T20 format, despite having hundreds of IPL matches under my belt as captain and a combination of the greatest IPL players, Gavaskar remarked at the Indian Express Idea Exchange.
In addition, Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid need to be held more accountable for high-profile defeats like the one in the WTC final, according to Gavaskar.
Why did you field first? should be the question they should be asking. Now, the toss said that it was cloudy and all that. The follow-up query should be, "You weren't aware of Travis Head's vulnerability to the short ball?" Why wasn't the bouncer hired till after he had made 80 runs? You know, Ricky Ponting was yelling, "Bounce him, bounce him," from the commentary box as soon as Head stepped up to the plate. Everyone was aware of it, yet we didn't even try, he continued.
In the ODI World Cup this year, Rohit and Dravid will both be anxious to demonstrate that they have what it takes to guide the Indian ship ahead.
