Rohit Sharma’s contribution went beyond his captaincy and batting prowess. He was awarded the title of the best fielder by the Team India fielding coach, T. Dilip. This recognition was a proof of Rohit Sharma’s tactical awareness and exceptional fielding skills. In a video posted by BCCI.tv, Coach Dilip referred to Rohit Sharma as “the professor” due to his ability to strategically position fielders.
“And here comes the important one. I call him the professor because he is tactically gun on getting the fielders at right position. One year back as a team, we found some philosophies for the team and one important thing was putting body on the line. If anyone comes as a first example, it’s the captain,” says Dilip on Rohit Sharma.
Team India’s management has introduced a unique tradition of awarding the best fielder a medal after each game in the World Cup 2023. Coach Dilip emphasized the significance of fielding, stating, “It’s not about one catch or two good catches. It’s about the spark you give to the team, and every contribution counts.”
Coach Dilip reminisced about the team’s journey, highlighting the importance of putting their bodies on the line for the team. He stated, “One year back as a team, we found some philosophies for the team, and one important thing was putting the body on the line. If anyone comes as a first example, it’s the captain.” Rohit Sharma’s dedication to the team’s success exemplifies this philosophy, making him a role model for the entire squad.
