5 Reasons Why Rohit Sharma Is A Poor Captain Than Virat Kohli

5 reasons why Rohit Sharma is a poorer captain than Virat Kohli. It’s easy to get carried away with Rohit Sharma’s 5 IPL title wins with Mumbai Indians as captain and forget what an outstanding group of players he had around him. In addition to winning five titles with MI as captain, Rohit Sharma also won an IPL as a player with the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in 2009.

Mumbai Indians – The most successful franchise in the history of the IPL won five titles in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020 all under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. But they failed to reach playoffs in IPL 2021 and IPL 2022.

Since taking over the captaincy reins from Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma has had some phenomenal results as India’s captain. In fact, Hitman has won 10 two-way series in a row, a feat any gamer in the world would be proud to accomplish.

Virat Kohli did not win any major titles as Indian captain, but he was instrumental in India’s most successful phase as a Test team. His record of 40 test wins trails only Graeme Smith (53), Ricky Ponting (48) and Steve Waugh (41).

Virat Kohli has captained India for almost 5 years and has a good winning percentage across all three formats. But what was disappointing was that he failed to win ICC trophy like T20 and ODI World Cups and Champions Trophy as well as other big tournaments like Asian Cup.

5 Reasons Why Rohit Sharma Is A Poor Captain Than Virat Kohli

1. Virat Kohli led from the front after MS Dhoni dropped out; Rohit Sharma’s averages after Virat Kohli’s retirement as skipper aren’t great

The hallmark of a good employer is the ability to lead by example. When MS Dhoni stepped down from the captaincy, Virat Kohli was well aware of the big shoes he had to fill. MS Dhoni, as we all know, has a stellar record as a skipper, especially in limited overs. Having won the T20 World Cup (2007), the Over 50 World Cup (2011) and the Champions Trophy (2013), MS Dhoni is the only skipper in the history of the sport to have won all the trophies in the ICC.

Despite the weight of expectations on his shoulders, Virat Kohli seized the opportunity with both hands and inspired confidence among his teammates by leading from the front. Virat Kohli, who recently saw his Test average drop below 50, scored seven double hundreds as skipper for India, creating a new record for most double hundreds by one Test skipper. He too boasted an unrealistic batting average of 72.65 as captain in ODIs.

On the other hand, Rohit Sharma averages 60.92 as an ODI pattern, but only 32.49 as a T20I pattern and 30 as a Test pattern. While his ODI averages as skipper of him are excellent, most of those matches came before he was appointed full-time all-format permanent skipper after Virat Kohli’s retirement as skipper. Virat Kohli averaged 54.8 as a Test pattern, 72.65 as an ODI pattern, and 47.58 as a T20I pattern.
