India’s limited overs deputy Rohit Sharma has listed out the difference between leading the country and Mumbai Indians. The flamboyant right-hander gets the opportunity to lead India whenever Virat Kohli is rested or injured.
Thus, Rohit Sharma will once again hold the captaincy reins in the upcoming Asia Cup 2018. Meanwhile, the right-hander has led Mumbai Indians to three Indian Premier League titles. Thus, he is one of the most successful captains in the folklore of the league.

In fact, it is natural that leading India brings more pressure as there are more expectations. Rohit had also led India to triumph in the Nidhahas trophy when Virat Kohli was rested from the tournament.
Rohit said leading team India is simpler as the players know each other better. Indian players travel with each other for the whole year and hence the bonhomie between them is greater. On the other hand, things are different while playing in the Indian Premier League.
Meanwhile, Rohit is the most improved batsman in the recent past. The stylish right-hander has scored the maximum number of double hundreds in the 50-overs format as he has scored three double tons.
Furthermore, he has been instrumental in giving a solid start to the Indian team while batting in the opening position with Shikhar Dhawan.
Rohit Sharma held a question-answer session on Twitter in which a fan asked him to shed light on the differences on the captaincy roles.
Rohit post read as, “One is teammates you travel with all year round and the other is players you play against and may never have even met before!“.
