Mumbai Indians’ captain Rohit Sharma is the most successful captain in the history of the Indian Premier League with five IPL titles. Moreover, he has won six titles as a player, the only player to achieve this feat.
Rohit Sharma literally knows the tricks and trades of the tournament and knows when to make a comeback at the right time. He has done that time and time again in India’s premier T20 competition.
As far as this season is concerned, he has been pretty good as a captain but failed to bring the best out of themselves as a batsman. He has been getting dismissed for cheap scores and came under fire for his batting.
Rohit Sharma registered two consecutive ducks against Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings. In the recently-concluded game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit Sharma scored 7 runs before he was trapped for a leg before wicket off Wanindu Hasaranga’s delivery.
