We witnessed the captaincy of Rohit Sharma against Bangladesh in the T20I series. Regular captain Virat Kohli was given rest in that T20I series as he was continuously playing this year. Rohit Sharma was praised for his captaincy in the absence of regular captain.
Shikhar Dhawan phrased that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are two different captains. He said that when they are together, we discuss with each other before taking any decision.
“They are different characters. In different situations, they make different choices. Whatever they feel right at one particular moment, they go with it. They, of course, discuss with each other. When Rohit is leading, he discusses with me, when Virat is leading he discusses with Rohit and me too,” Shikhar Dhawan said.
In three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, he took some praiseworthy decision. He always stood with his team. Virat Kohli’s absence was not felt in the home series. Shreyas Iyer and Shivam Dube after the match also opined that Rohit Sharma’s Pep talk really helped them in gaining confidence in the field.
