“Rohit won’t face difficulties”: Gautam Gambhir comes in support of Virat Kohli for the first time over test Captaincy

India’s new captain in all formats, Rohit Sharma enjoyed a flying beginning to his career as a Test skipper after Team India hammered Sri Lanka in Mohali. Sharma and his troops will encounter the Lankan Challenge next in a pink-ball Test at Bengaluru. Pundits hailed the swashbuckling opener’s leadership in the 1st Test and described it as the perfect start of a new era.

Team India has been an invincible side, especially in red-ball cricket. Except for their recent failure in South Africa, the team has been amongst the best touring sides in the history of Test cricket. A lot of credit behind this definitely belongs to former captain and modern-day legend Virat Kohli. It was his strong resolve back in 2014, that has built a mighty squad that haunts the opposition even at their backyard in the longest format of the game.

“Bowlers win you matches” Gambhir praises india’s solid bowling unit

Several pundits and experts are analyzing Team’s ideal game plan in the ongoing campaign of the World Test Championship. Former veteran opener Gautam Gambhir attributed Kohli’s stint as a skipper that ensured Rohit taking over an already match-winning XI.

” Rohit won’t face difficult challenges as Test captain because Virat has developed a solid bowling attack. Bowlers win you matches and you’ve Ashwin, Jadeja, Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Bumrah with you.”

Kohli’s legacy as a leader in Red Ball cricket

Gambhir has often been drawn into controversies for his brutally honest remarks. However, his comments on Kohli and his legacy as the Test skipper are hardly debatably. Kohli brought in a change in the think-tank of the dressing room was to play with a 5 bowler attack. Henceforth, India many a time faced batting collapses. But the bowlers always stood out to pick up 20 wickets and push the opposition into deep trouble. The 1st Test vs Sri Lanka too followed a similar tale. The spinners led by Ashwin and Jadeja successfully dismissed the Sri Lankan side twice after the batters put up a mammoth total in the 1st innings.

This change in mindset thereby is a big reason behind why India once again became numero uno in ICC Test Rankings. Their loss at the finals of the inaugural edition of WTC was surely heartbreaking for the team and fans. Thus, Rohit’s first challenge will be to clinch the coveted trophy and prove why Team India is by far, the best team in the current generation in the longest format of the game.
