IPL 2023: Rohit Sharma Should Leave MI Captaincy by Doull
According Rohit Sharma Should Leave MI Captaincy by Doull, According to the cricketer turned commentator, Virat Kohli made the right decision by resigning as the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore. He further emphasized that since Rohit Sharma is the captain of the Indian squad, he should explore ways to reduce the burden on himself.
“I was a big proponent of him [Virat Kohli] giving up the captaincy of RCB, much like I am with Rohit, now that he is the captain of India. I just think this is the tournament where he needs to be free and just play.”
Despite Mumbai’s decent performance this season, Rohit Sharma has struggled to find his form with the bat. The experienced opener has scored 257 runs in 13 innings and has an average of only 19.76.
Mumbai has won seven out of their thirteen matches this season and currently holds the sixth position in the rankings. Their net run rate stands at -0.128.
Rohit Sharma Should Leave MI Captaincy by Doull, Simon Doull thinks that the Bangalore franchise would have consulted with Kohli before transferring the captaincy to Faf du Plessis. He explained:
“When I talked about Virat and the captaincy, it was like every pressure was on him. Indian captaincy, three formats, RCB captaincy, and just to see that taken away, and it was never going to go to someone who he wasn’t going to respect. So there are only two or three players in world cricket that could have gone to Bangalore and been captain.” Rohit Sharma Should Leave MI Captaincy by Doull.
“They ended up buying Faf for good money. The case was already there, and it had to have his stamp of approval before they event went for him. So, he gives up the captaincy, he gives the stamp of approval, and they got Faf.”
Ahead of the 2022 season, RCB acquired Faf du Plessis for 7 crore at the IPL mega-auction and appointed him as their new captain.
Simon Doull Talks About RCB’s Lack of IPL Trophies
As per Report Rohit Sharma Should Leave MI Captaincy by Doull, Even though Bangalore has had several notable players in their team in the past, they have not been able to secure an IPL championship yet.
According to him, not progressing with a team full of stars would be unfair to the franchise. The 53-year-old mentioned that supporters of RCB would be anticipating their first championship victory this season.
“That’s [IPL trophy] that’s missing in Bangalore’s resume,” Doull added. “You look across the teams they’ve had and the players that have come and gone at that franchise, and to not have a title is a disservice to that franchise, to that uniform. When you see that sort of performance tonight, you wonder. Bangalore fans will wonder, is this the year?”
Faf du Plessis and his team will be up against the reigning champions Gujarat Titans in the final league match of the season. The match is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 21, at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium.
