T20 World Cup: 3 Reasons Why Rohit Sharma’s Captaincy Has Been Top Class

India rumbled their way into the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022; while the three other teams in the semis - New Zealand, England, and Pakistan - confirmed their semi-final seat in their last match, India had sealed a berth before their last group match. While Rohit Sharma’s bat has been largely silent, the Indian captain has been brilliant as the skipper of the side as India finished with the highest number of points and wins - 8 points and 4 wins - across the two groups.

Here are the 3 factors for which India captain Rohit Sharma should be praised: 1. Stability in the XI, backing players

There was a lot of criticism and questions about Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid trying out dozens of players in the past year in the shortest format. But come the main event in Australia, the management had made up their plans and stuck with them, making little tweaks.

Pragmatic bowling changes

Being pragmatic about his plans, especially in the bowling department, was one of the key aspects often associated with Rohit Sharma’s success in the IPL with the Mumbai Indians. The 35-year-old has remained the same as the Indian team’s skipper.

Not afraid to make risky calls

There hadn’t been many opportunities for Rohit to tinker with his plans or make some shocking calls. He was needed to make it once: against South Africa when the Proteas needed 25 runs in the last three overs with one over of Ashwin still left.
