Mumbai: Rohit Sharma praises former India captain Virat Kohli after he was selected as the captain of the Indian ODI team. Despite not having a captaincy, Virat Kohli is one of the leaders in the team, Rohit Boria said in an interview with Majumdar.

Any team would want a bat the quality of a coli. It’s amazing to think that T20 cricket averages over 50. “Apart from Kohli’s experience, how many matches has he saved India with the bat?” Said Rohit.

The team needs a player of Kohli’s standard. Apart from that, Kohli is still one of the leaders of this team. When all this comes together, who can abandon him? “Who can ignore a player like him?” Rohit asked.

Rohit attributed the Mumbai Indians’ crowning achievement in the IPL to the performances of their crucial players. Rohit said that having a team that performs according to the circumstances makes his job in the Mumbai Indians easier as a captain.

The reason I shine as a captain in Mumbai is because of the players in my team. To be honest I don’t have a big role there. Because, the team is so great. Its credit must first go to team management. “It’s about building such a solid team and giving the players a chance to put out a great performance,” Rohit said.

Rohit Sharma, who was selected as the captain of the T20 team after the T20 World Cup, started the three-match series against New Zealand by sweeping. The selectors, who announced the Test squad for the series against South Africa yesterday, unexpectedly selected Rohit as the ODI captain.
