New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson has pointed out the difference between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s captaincy. He has played under both of them in the Indian Premier League. Virat Kohli has been holding the position of the captaincy since 2014 when he first became the Test captain.
In early 2017, he was also announced as the ODI and T20I captain. He has also been captain of the famous IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore(RCB) since 2013.
Both are very good captains: Corey Anderson
On the other hand, Rohit Sharma also has a good experience of captaining. He is the most successful captain in IPL’s history, leading Mumbai Indians to lift the title four times. He is also the vice-captain in the shorter formats and has captained the team when Kohli is under the break. The Mumbaikar has also led India to win the Asia Cup 2018.
Now, Corey, who has played under both the captains, has differentiated between the two successful and popular captains.
“Both are very good captains. Sharma is probably a bit laid-back in that role. He is passionate, wants to win, but keeps it under wraps a little bit more. Kohli wears his heart on his sleeve and shows a lot of emotion. But they both take charge of the team. They are natural-born leaders,” said Corey.
Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma are good tacticians: Corey Anderson
“They are good tacticians; they understand the game and know how to win. That’s why India has been so successful,” Corey added.
“India has numerous players who have captained IPL teams. You know that if someone drops out be it injury or anything they have replacements,” he further said.
Well, this year the fate of the lucrative league is under threat because of the coronavirus. The league first has been postponed till 15 April which was earlier scheduled to start from 29th March. And, now BCCI has officially announced that it is postponed indefinitely.
