Mumbai Indians, who endured their worst possible season last year, made a shaky start to the ongoing 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League, suffering back-to-back defeats. When MI suffered back-to-back defeats at the start of the ongoing season, the memories of the last year must have come to haunt the MI camp.
(For the unversed, with just 4 wins out of their 14 games in IPL 2022, MI finished last in the season.)
However, MI captain Rohit Sharma has once again proved why he is hailed so highly in the shortest format of the game. The way Rohit has turned the tables around for MI in the ongoing season is amazing.
With the absence of key players like Jasprit Bumrah, Jofra Archer, things looked blurry for the MI captain. However, Rohit Sharma, who is the most successful captain in the history of the IPL, has led the team exceptionally well.
From making some wise decisions on-field to unearthing some gems in the MI camp, Rohit Sharma has been incredible as captain this year as well.
Mohammad Kaif On Why Rohit Sharma Is A Great Captain
Meanwhile, as Rohit-led MI defeated Lucknow Super Kings in Eliminator 1 of IPL 2023, fans and experts were left in awe of Rohit’s captaincy skills. He has been receiving praise from all corners for his amazing leadership and the way MI has made a comeback in this season under his guidance. Among many, former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif also took to his social media and hailed Rohit for his amazing captaincy.
In his tweet, Kaif praised Rohit for making smart decisions and for not going by the stats. He wrote:
“Rohit shows great captaincy is also about being practical. MI has mostly won chasing in this IPL but for the high-pressure eliminator, Rohit opts to bat. He didn’t go by stats, he played smart. @ImRo45″
