‘Rohit Underrated Captain…’, Gavaskar’s shocking commentary on the ‘Hitman’ who made Mumbai champions 5 times
Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are among the successful Indian Premier League captains. Rohit has so far led Mumbai Indians to the trophy five times, while MS Dhoni has led Chennai Super Kings to the title four times. However, Sunil Gavaskar feels that Rohit does not get credit for his leadership in the IPL. He said on Thursday (May 25) that Rohit is underrated in leadership in the IPL and does not get as much credit for captaincy as Dhoni.
What did Gavaskar say?
Sunil Gavaskar said that Rohit Sharma’s role in the success of the Mumbai Indians team is well discussed due to the on-field discussions. Also, he also discussed that the Indian captain was instrumental in defeating Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2023 Eliminator match.
Speaking to the media, Gavaskar said how Rohit used Akash Madhwal to dismiss Ayush Badoni and Nicholas Pooran in the same over. The captain advised them to change the angle, but this was not discussed much.
He said, “Rohit Sharma is the captain who has gone to Lekh. He has won five titles for Mumbai. Rohit bowled a wicket-taking over to Akash Madhwal to dismiss Ayush Badoni. He then asked batsman Nicholas Pooran to bowl round the wicket. Had Dhoni replaced Rohit, everyone would have said that he had devised a brilliant strategy to get Pooran out. However, such things are not done with Rohit.”
Gavaskar also praised the Mumbai Indians team on this occasion. He said that despite a poor start in IPL 2023, the Mumbai team did not give up. They lost 4 of their opening seven matches. At that time, the Mumbai team was far behind in the play-off race. However, they won five of their next seven matches to secure a place in the play-offs.
A resounding victory in an eliminator match
On Wednesday (May 24), Mumbai defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 81 runs in an eliminator match at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai. Mumbai challenged Lucknow by 183 runs in this match. However, the Lucknow team was bowled out for 101 runs in this match. Akash Madhwal played the lion’s share in this victory. He took 5 wickets while bowling 3.3 overs for 5 runs.
