Veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel has shed light on the difference in the captaincy styles of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma. Parthiv Patel has the experience of playing under MS Dhoni in the India National Cricket Team, under Rohit Sharma in the Mumbai Indians (MI), and under Virat Kohli in the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
MS Dhoni has been one of the most successful captains in the history of international cricket. He has been the most successful Indian captain ever. He is the only captain in world cricket to win all the three major ICC events. Dhoni won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007, the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011, and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013 for the India National Cricket Team.
Now, Parthiv Patel has opened up on the difference in captaincy styles of MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma and given reasons behind his claims.
Parthiv Patel Opens Up On MS Dhoni’s Captaincy
India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, who has played under Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma for India, and in the IPL, explained the difference in styles of captaincy between all three.
“I think MS Dhoni knows completely about every player’s potential and what all can be extracted out from him. We talk about giving your 100 per cent, but every player’s level of 100 per cent varies,” he said in an interaction with former India batsman Aakash Chopra on his Youtube chat show ‘Aakash Vani’.
“So, Dhoni knows what is a potential of a player, and he brings that out. He lets them play in their own style, and gives them space to express themselves,” he added.
Rohit Sharma Is Good At Man Management While Virat Kohli Likes To Lead By Example: Parthiv Patel
There have been talks going on in the media stating claims of adoption of dual captaincy in team India with Rohit Sharma leading the T20 side due to Virat Kohli’s failure in recent ICC events.
“Rohit plans really well. At bowlers’ meet, he is completely involved. He figures out how to use the information that has been given to him, and which player can be used in what role – he is a master in figuring that out. He has improved a lot over the years, starting from 2014 to now, if you look at him. At man-management, Dhoni and Rohit are really good at,” Parthiv Patel said.
“Virat has different style of captaincy, he likes to be right in front every time, he likes to be lead from front and be aggressive all the time. It is his style and it has suited him. Dhoni and Rohit keep the dressing room calm while Virat makes sure that everyone is on their toes and they all keep pushing themselves,” he further added.
