Chennai: Recently Rohit Sharma’s Team India completed a clean sweep in the three-match T20I series played against West Indies and there was an appreciation for the Men in Blue from all over. Our team displayed their exploits in the shortest format of the game in spite of the absence of star players Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.
As Rohit proved his credentials again as one of the finest leaders in limited-overs format, VVS Laxman was quick to praise the Mumbai batsman for his leadership, stating he was becoming semiregular at the job.
“I was again mightily impressed with Rohit’s captaincy. He is becoming a semiregular at the job, especially in T20 cricket, and handled his squad admirably. He is proactive on the field and has clear plans, but isn’t afraid to improvise,” the former India batsman said.
Laxman further said, “He also continued to bat beautifully, and his fourth T20I hundred in Lucknow was one for the ages. I have seen few batsmen combine power and elegance with such nonchalance,”.
