As Rohit Sharma continues to scale new heights in the Indian Premier League (IPL), strengthening his resume further as the captain of a T20 side, Virat Kohli endured another unsuccessful season leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Though it’s not the first time that Kohli and Rohit have been compared over their captaincy success in the shortest format, Mumbai Indians’ (MI) triumph in IPL 2020 gave former England skipper Michael Vaughan another reason to suggest a change.
Vaughan, taking to Twitter, expressed the need for a change that could benefit not just the Indian team but also Kohli.
“Without question Rohit Sharma should be the Indian T20 captain .. fantastic man manager & leader .. & he knows exactly how to win T20 games .. it would also give Virat chance to take a breather and just be the player .. it’s works for all other teams around the world,” tweeted Vaughan.
Rohit, in fact, has already won a few titles leading the Indian team in multi-team tournaments. The 33-year-old led the Indian team when they won the Nidahas Trophy T20 tri-series in Bangladesh and also the 2018 Asia Cup.
When it comes to Kohli, the current India captain, has helped the team scale new heights in all formats of the game but is yet to win an ICC trophy as the skipper.
