Rohit Sharma vs KL Rahul: Who Is A Better T20 Captain?

War of the best captain: Believe it or not but IPL 2022 has seen Rohit Sharma losing total control of his ship as Mumbai Indians have played their worst IPL season ever. On the contrary, KL Rahul, the man who was criticised for his poor captaincy in the Indian colours has led the Giants from the front and currently is stationed in the second position of the points table.

Well, questions are already asked about whether KL Rahul or Rohit Sharma makes the better captain? Firstly, we must understand that India is cricket-crazy nation. Hence, the emotions are a lot more than cold, hard, practical thinking.

Also, the memories of the Indian fans are pretty short and they judge an individual on the basis of momentary performances which is usually not possible when one is deciding the fate of the national captaincy.

Rohit Sharma vs KL Rahul: Who Is A Better T20 Captain?

IPL is definitely a landmark movement in the fabric of Indian cricket but believe it or not, it cannot decide the ability of a skipper to lead the national side. In a franchise tournament, a lot of factors come together. The most important factor of all time includes players from various countries coming together. Hence, for captains, the job becomes slightly easier.

Rohit Sharma has led Mumbai to five titles wherein KL Rahul’s preceding record as a captain is downright abysmal. Not only has the numbers jettisoned him in the IPL, but his stint with the Indian cricket team as a skipper also isn’t something that India would be proud of.

However, the wicket-keeping batter has been showing signs of maturity which is actually a very good herald for Indian cricket’s future. Given Rohit’s age, it is pretty obvious that he hasn’t got much cricket left in him. Hence, it is of substantial importance that the next captain gets groomed in this period.

With Rahul coming of age with the leadership bestowed upon him, the job of transforming him into a proficient leader will be slightly easier for Rohit. Now coming to the argument of who is a better captain, well it makes no sense at all. Rohit has been leading the Indians for a while now and he is a pretty experienced campaigner. Rahul is absolutely new to the trade and if you expect him to deliver results already, well, you should work on your patience.
