Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians successfully clinched the IPL trophy for the fifth time and defended the title they earned last year. He became the first batsman to win the trophy 6 times as a player and 5 times as a captain. Now, on seeing this achievement of him, twitter India raised questions on the captaincy of Virat Kohli who is yet to win a trophy for Royal Challengers Bangalore and is captaining team India in all the three formats.
While fans of both the cricketers are involved in verbal spat regarding the same, a statement made by Michael Vaughan, a former captain of team England who is known for his successful captaining career in International cricketer, added fuel to the fire. The cricketer who is currently involved in commentating, directly said that Rohit should captain team India in the upcoming T20 world cup tournament.
He said that it would give Virat Kohli a breather to be justa player and also added that it happens across the globe. He described Rohit Sharma as “Fantastic man manager” and “leader” who knows how to win T20 games. “Without question Rohit Sharma should be the Indian T20 captain .. fantastic man manager & leader .. & he knows exactly how to win T20 games .. it would also give Virat chance to take a breather and just be the player .. it’s works for all other teams around the world.” his tweet read.

Rcb released him.
bumrah from last 3,4 seasons.. That too in the career beginning you can't consider bumrah as a top bowler.. Its the confidence they gave and made mi a strong team in all sections.
Mi was not born strong it grew up to be strong
MS Dhoni won very first worldcup he played 50-50 and T20 that's why he played these much worldcup as captain if he never won his first worldcup he never might be captain of India … I know Virat should be captain of India but You can't always bring Dhoni …— Captain (@iamsavagestar) November 10, 2020
