New Delhi: Mythological brian lara 'Leader' praised on Thursday Rohit SharmaEmphasizing that the 36-year-old player has inherent captaincy skills, regardless of whether he is officially named as captain or not.
Lara said that one of the defining characteristics of Rohit is his unwavering commitment to prioritizing the interests of both the Indian national team and his IPL franchise, Mumbai Indians.
This selfless approach, according to Lara, sets Rohit apart from his peers and contributes to his effectiveness as a leader on and off the field.
“When you look at Rohit Sharma, you feel he connects very well with the public… having spent his entire life from youth till today playing for India, sometimes despite not getting the nod from the selectors. Because he had to work his way back and you know when you have an image and an idol like Rohit Sharma… sometimes some people don't take knock-downs very well, but I think. What is very commendable is his ability to put everything aside and put India first in this case too and come out and play the way cricket should be played,” Lara said on Star Sports. .
“He doesn't seem too upset, which is great. He's a leader, it doesn't matter whether you're named captain or not. At some point when you reach a certain age, at a certain level. You're a leader and I think he represents that role very well.”
During MI's clash against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rohit smashed an unbeaten 105 off 63 balls and in the process the iconic opener achieved two milestones – the most by a batsman in the MI vs CSK rivalry. 512 runs. And counting and the first Indian to hit 500 sixes in T20 cricket.
