Watch: Rohit Sharma gives great honour to his former captain MS Dhoni, as the Indian batsman hails him as India’s best captain ever.
Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, the Indian team has seen one of the best days in its history, and Rohit Sharma has been a part of the majority of his plans which brought India to success.
Just like many Indian fans, Rohit also feels that Dhoni is the best captain India ever had. He praised Dhoni for keeping his calm during the storm and of his ability to boost the confidence of young players in the team.
In a talk show, Rohit claimed that Dhoni is one of the most decorated captains and how his tenure of 9 years as a captain has shaped the team to bring success, even in his absence.
“Whole India knows MS Dhoni is the one who has been like that. It (remaining calm) has helped him to make such good decisions on the field,” said Rohit Sharma in an interview with Curly Tales.
He is now the most successful Indian captain of all time, having won all the three ICC trophies and IPL titles as well. He is the best captain India has seen,”
“Obviously there is a reason behind it and that reason is him being calm and composed under pressure situation. I have seen him handle a lot of young bowlers when they get under pressure. He just goes around and puts his arm around their neck and talks to them,”
“When a younger member is treated like that by a senior member of the team, you obviously feel confident,” added Rohit Sharma who made his debut under MS Dhoni’s captaincy.
