Currently, Rohit is at the fore in the race for the captain of the Indian T20 team. The biggest reason for this is Rohit Sharma’s captaincy record. Hitman is the most successful captain in the history of the Indian Premier League. He has led Mumbai Indians to the title 5 times. Most importantly, he has also been Virat’s mentor in limited overs for a long time.

For the past several years, he has often been compared with his vice-captain Rohit Sharma. Some former cricketers like Rohit Sharma’s cool style more than the aggressive captain on the field. Some even called his captaincy influenced by MS Dhoni. The biggest reason for this has been the success of Mumbai Indians under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma in the Indian Premier League.
