The Indian team is currently one of the best teams in cricket right now filled with a lot of talented players who have given amazing performances. The Indian team has achieved a lot of great moments in the game in all three formats of the game. There is no doubt that being in the top 5 ranked teams should be enough to establish themselves as an absolute powerhouse in the game. The number of talented players and great wins have been something we are proud of as an Indian cricket fan, but the major trophies have still not come for the last decade, which has been the only disappointing factor in what were seeing as the best team in the world right now.
India captain Rohit Sharma has also had a great record as an India skipper in all the formats, where he has a win rate of over 70% in his overall captaincy record. Rohit has also been one of the best batters for India in the world with over 18000 runs in international cricket making him one of the top 5 run scorers for his nation. This record is incredible, but still has not proved to get India another major international trophy which is still eluding them for a long time. This has been the real heartbreaking story for the Indians who are still waiting for that glory which they haven’t experienced since 2013 Champions trophy.
Rohit Sharma on the numbers game as skipper
Rohit had taken over the captaincy after Virat Kohli stepped down in 2021 and has had a great run so far, but seeing his interview on Jio cinema speaking to Dinesh Karthik, we got to hear some brutally honest answers where the current skipper said that numbers are overrated and stating “ I wanted to bring a certain change; players going out there and playing with a lot of freedom”. Rohit talked about taking the statistical side of the game out of the team completely and wanted his players to not think about the numbers at all.
Rohit ended the interview saying that he had scored 5 hundreds in the 2019 World Cup, but in the end the team had lost. This was a bold statement made by the India skipper, who has big aspirations for the team. The determination and attitude of Rohit as an international skipper is visible in the interview, where he wants his side to play their natural game and achieve more in the game of cricket. Rohit might not have a trophy to his name yet, but is still proving himself as one of the best players and leaders in the Indian team and will still try to keep the trophy dream alive.
