The recently concluded ODI World Cup 2023 saw the Indian team put in brilliant performances in the tournament and reach the summit clash of the competition unbeaten. Winning every group stage match and defeating New Zealand in the semi-final, India ended their campaign after losing the final to Pat Cummins-led Australia.

The Men in Blue were guided to the final by the brilliant leadership of Rohit Sharma and brilliant showings by Virat Kohli. Rohit led from the front and put in aggressive showings as the opener, whereas Virat Kohli stacked in huge numbers and broke Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record of 49 ODI centuries.

Seeing their performances, former New Zealand cricketer and head coach of England’s Test team, Brendon McCullum, came forward to laud Rohit Sharma and went on to state that he loved his captaincy in the World Cup.

“Yeah. I like his captaincy (Rohit Sharma’s captaincy). I think his captaincy is bold. He takes risks, and he takes the game on. And when you add the talent base of India to these kinds of tactics, then he can achieve very good things. He has been a great leader for not just India but for Mumbai Indians over the years as well,” McCullum was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times.

He was always touted as a future superstar: McCullum

Furthermore, McCullum heaped praise on Virat Kohli as well. Opining that he knows the 35-year-old from his time in the Indian Premier League (IPL), he stated that Kohli was also thought of as a future superstar.

“Well, obviously, Virat. I know him pretty well from my time at RCB and also from playing against him. So look, he was always touted as a future superstar, and he has lived up to that. He has dealt with the hopes and dreams of over a billion people, and he has been able to perform on the big stage. He deserves every accolade that he gets,” McCullum said.
