The Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma is a perfect example of a captain leading the team in the 2023 ODI World Cup. At the moment, he is the highest run scorer for team India in the 2023 ODI World Cup and has smashed one century and one half-century. He is not only scoring runs, but he is also showcasing himself as one of the best captains in the tournament. Accurate bowling changes, trusting the bowlers, fielding, and many other factors.
Many experts and legends have appreciated his game, and the 2011 ODI World Cup winner, Suresh Raina, said,
“I would say Rohit Sharma is the next MS Dhoni for the Indian cricket team.”
I have seen him, he is calm, he likes to listen, he likes to give confidence to the players, and on top of that, he likes to lead from the front.
Before that, he mentioned, “Whenever I use to talk with players, they use to say Rohit has the same respect as Dhoni—Rohit has been very friendly in the dressing room.” You know the atmosphere of the dressing room well.
Well, Suresh Raina is not wrong. Since the 2023 Asia Cup, the team has been confident, and we all see the post-match fun in the dressing room. The atmosphere is surely magical, and a lot of credit goes to the coaching staff as well as the players.
India winning the 2023 ODI World Cup is the dream of more than 1.4 billion people. With this ICC tournament being hosted in India, there are no chances of errors being expected by the players. Can India lift the World Cup after 12 years? Will Rohit Sharma become the third Indian captain to win an ICC trophy? For that, we must wait for a while and hope the dreams don’t end up being broken.
