Given umpteen chances before he finally came good. A litany of excuses for his, quite frankly, unsuccessful captaincy tenure. 

 

If anything, his India captaincy has highlighted how good MI team management were from 2013 to 2020. Rohit's true contribution to those IPL successes is starting to be questioned.

It again reinforced IPL success has to do more with buying talent .

 

But KL Rahul is the most pampered player in cricket history.Rohit atleast is great in white ball cricket.

How many of ICfers wanted Kohli out as captain kohli even after his struggles still scored more runs as captain.

To KL's credit, he has always adjusted his role as required by the team. He's a mental midget for sure.

The most pampered player in Indian cricket history has to be KL Rahul. Every avenue is destroyed and permutations & combinations been changed to ensure lord Rahul gets int the playing XI.

 

Rohit actually shown very good talent from U19 days but was unable to translate that into performances in senior team. So team management and MSD backed him until he came good starting 2013. Think that was the right decision.

 

Also, after Kohli left the captaincy...Rohit was the logical replacement based on what he has done for MI or limited opportunities he got to lead India (Asia cup 2018, Nidahas etc). So giving him captaincy was not incorrect decision either.

What credit, he has flopped in every role so TM is finding ways to fit him into the team that too at the expense of other player. Rohit atleast is opener who is not trying to leech spots from other players.

 

 

33 avg after 50 tests is testment that moron KL should not be anywhere near test team.Rohit is Bradman compared to this mental midget Rahul.

 

Forgetting all the endless chokes  in whiteball  this guy who cost India multiple world t20s and odi finals should be nowhere near any Indian team in any format.

 

This moron KL rahul is the most useless cricketer ,who will never win anything for his team as all his life he is only concerned about how to find spot in the team. What will he do for the team.

KL gets heavily scrutinized though. 

 

Rohit doesn't get enough nowadays.

I agree Rohit is getting too much pass for his failures. He is unfit and fat plus he is a useless captain which is hurting the team big time.

Because he is showing enough "intent" these days to mask his inabilities.

 

His peak was in 2019 ODI WC, and once his fitness declined and was ridiculed in 2022 T20 WC. He started his bang bang approach which has given people some hope. Plus the way he smashed Pakistani trundlers in last few games has given him additional good will.

 

KL on the other hand, looks scared & nervous even on his best days. No one these days want to see a meek and scared character on the field.

Disagree.

Rohit wasn't given long rope for nothing.

2007 T20 WC win he played key role.

2008 CB series finals he played a very good knock in our first ever series win in Aus.

Was dropped and made comebacks by scoring in domestics.

2011 ODI tour to WI, he played some key innings in our win where his competitors completely failed.

 

In his captaincy at least we won 2 Asia cups+Nidhas, reached Semis of WT20, played finals of World cup.

He isn't as involved as Kohli or may even tactically inferior but he doesn't tinker with the best XI too much. Can't forget the mess Kohli Shastri made of 2019 campaign.

How? Indian selection committee is the biggest joke of all time. He did his job, but when retarded players like avesh, bishnoi, mukesh, and countless otgers selected over good ones yea it happens. 
 

he was the standout player in worldcup with shami.

Hahaha Rohit Sharma supporters are probably the most delusional bunch of all.

 

He turned from someone who could score 200+ at will in bilaterals to a buffoon who can't even bat 30 balls.

 

People wanted such Afridi lite players like Yusuf Pathan out of the team but this guy is made captain AND given "selfless" tag. If that's the case send Shami or Axar to open batting I am sure he too will whack a couple of sixes and get out and be called "selfless"

 

Rohit has zero intensity, zero strategy and its clear zero stamina and concentration either. All these are related. You cannot play against world class players with peak fitness like Cummins, Marsh, Markram etc. And expect to not be trounced at the highest level.

 

The joke is on idiot fans of this fool who from the beginning supported him and Dhawan's bilateral bashing. Dhoni kept him in the team because of one good performance in T20 WC and even in IPL his batting record was poor and was constantly saved in the early days by Pollard.

 

What legacy will he leave in the end? He will be forgotten in history books just like Manjrekar, Sidhu etc. 

 

Don't get me started on KL Rahul... he is like the perfect replication of Rohit Sharma in meek leadership and surrender.

He's not getting the same scrutiny that virat had because he's not going around claiming that his team is on the same level as Clive Lloyd's team. He's setting mediocre expectations and reaching them and going under the radar. BCCI obviously wants to move on but no heir apparent right now. Maybe once pandya is fit enough to play 4-5 months without injury, he will replace as loi cap

IMO, Bishnoi is far from retarded.

Infact, he is the one bowler who has all the skills to become a T20 specialist, our own version of Rashid Khan.

 

Kid bowl fast googlies, will surely learn leg breaks as well, is an agile fielder and an honest trier with bat. Not many weeks ago he was no 1 T20 bowler.

 

If selectors push him for longer formats then I will call this as retarded decision, but for T20's, he is perfectly suited.

He definitely is.

 

He has been totally failure after 2 good innings in Wt20 2007, still he is permenant part of T20 squad of every wt20. That is 17 *in years. Last 3 editions, he has been totally atrocious - like any other nation and he would have been thrown out in humiliating way from T20 squad and here we have Rohit returning to captain t20 side . If it isn't pampering then what it is? 

 

 

The guy wasn't interested in tests at all still TM and captain played him at every position to somehow accomodate this loser In tests, Kohli once came one down to protect this guy against WI when Rohit was picked inplace of Pujara in 2016 WI tour after SR discussion. Not to mention his reckless attitude of playing pull and lofted shots in test matches which is often brushed under the carpet on the name of game changing attitude or bravery. He literally has no game awareness in tests matches, he saved us few times in last 2-3 years at home, that is it. Otherwise he should be nowhere near test team, let's just not talk about captaincy.

 

In ODIs he was backed to core, played 90 odd ODIs without doing zilch before Dhoni tried him at opening- one of the easiest position to bat in LOIs, even there he laid eggs in Knockouts .

 

One of the most forgettable cricketer who won't have any legacy and India need to move on from him very soon. I would take players like Mitchell Marsh,Matthew Wade,Faulkner over this guy anyday..
