“Without question Rohit Sharma should be the Indian T20 captain .. fantastic man manager & leader .. & he knows exactly how to win T20 games .. it would also give Virat chance to take a breather and just be the player .. it’s works for all other teams around the world ..#IPL2020”

Well, this isn’t the first time that someone has expressed that Rohit should be the captain for the shortest format of the game for team India. There has always been this debate if team India needs split captaincy or not.
Therefore after Rohit Sharma was able to take his team to another glorious win last night, Twitter was once again divided as the fans indulged in a debate over the captaincy. While there are many who think that Rohit Sharma should be made the skipper of the shortest format of the game, on the other hand, there are many who feel that Virat Kohli is superb as a captain and India doesn’t need split captaincy.

an unfit captain wins you trophies and a fit captain wins you a pass to nearest gym. choose your captain wisely.

Mumbai has many factors to favour them … Can't point Rohit's captaincy as reason. Their franchise is the richest and players gets facilities compared to others ..On top of that they were backed by Jhonty rhodes, Mahela and Ricky You can see the change Delhi got because of ricky

Look at the players of MI. If these are from RCB & Virat is captain then they'll do the same thing. Hope everyone can understand this !!
