Indian all-rounder Suresh Raina revealed that he sees similarities between Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni when it comes to captaincy.
“Rohit’s captaincy is very similar to MSD. The way he does things calmly, the way he motivates people. He is bindaas, he knows that whenever he goes to bat he’ll make runs. So this sort of confidence is there in a player then the rest of the players also pick that up from him. this is what I like about Rohit.” Raina said on Sportscreen’s YouTube page.
Raina recalled the 2017 Indian Premier League final between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant to hail Rohit’s captaincy ability.
“I recently saw in that final against Pune, Rohit made some 2-3 great moves as captain of Mumbai.. in crunch situation the way he made changes between overs on a dry wicket, the way he released pressure then created pressure. ing that you know that he is taking all these decisions himself. Yes, there must be some advice coming from outside but in his mind he knows what to do when. No wonder he has won so many trophies as captain,” he said.
