Sourav Gangly shares his views on Rohit taking the helm as captain

A stalwart of Indian cricket who played a crucial role in transforming the team during his captaincy and later as an administrator, Ganguly unequivocally backed Rohit as the ‘best choice’ for the captaincy role.

Expressing his views, Ganguly also pointed to Rohit’s stellar performance in the ODI World Cup 2023, where he guided India to 10 consecutive victories, capturing the hearts of fans both in India and around the world. Despite falling short in the final, Ganguly believes that Rohit’s leadership in the T20 World Cup 2024 could bring triumph for India.

“Rohit Sharma is the right choice as Captain for the T20 World Cup 2024, the way he led the Team India & won 10 matches in World Cup 2023 is still fresh in our memory – so Rohit is the Best choice to lead India,” Ganguly told Mid-Day.

Rohit’s sensational comeback to T20Is

It’s noteworthy that despite being absent from T20I action for nearly a year since 2022, Rohit recently made a remarkable comeback in the format, smashing a century against Afghanistan and securing the record for the most centuries by a batter in T20Is (later matched by Glenn Maxwell). With Rohit back at the helm of the team for an ICC event, anticipation is high, and fans are eagerly awaiting the global spectacle.
