Want to be a professional cricketer?
The flamboyant all-rounder of the Indian cricket team and Mumbai Indians, Hardik Pandya, has stated that he has enjoyed playing a lot under Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma has been the captain of Mumbai Indians since 2013 in the cash-rich Indian Premier League and has won multiple trophies with the decorated franchise.
Hardik’s statement has added fuel to the fire in the ongoing debate of split captaincy in the Indian team, making Rohit Sharma the skipper of the team in the T20Is. India’s drought for an ICC trophy has been stretched far too long as Virat Kohli hasn’t managed to win a trophy with the Indian team ever since he took over the captaincy.
Hardik Pandya has said that he has enjoyed his best cricket under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy during his stint with Mumbai Indians.
Hardik Pandya Opens Up On Playing Under Rohit Sharma
“I have always enjoyed playing with Rohit and he has been a great captain. We don’t have much conversation about the game but I have had my best years playing under him,” Pandya was quoted as saying by Mumbai Indians.
Pandya also said that star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is a ‘different character.’ “He’s calm and knowledgeable. He’s someone who I enjoy being with. We have got success together and have genuinely shared that success,” Hardik Pandya said.
Rohit Sharma Has Been The Most Successful Captain In The IPL
Rohit Sharma is the most successful captain and player in IPL’s 12-year long history. The Mumbaikar has won four titles as a captain. He led Mumbai Indians to victory in the 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019 edition of the cash-rich tournament. His maiden IPL title came in IPL 2009 when he represented Deccan Chargers. He was also awarded as the Emerging Player Of The Season in his maiden IPL title run.
Rohit was expected to make a return to the field with Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, but with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, his return to the field has further been elongated. Rohit is presently in isolation and can be seen active on his social media platforms.
