𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 – Former Indian cricket team all-rounder Irfan Pathan praised Rohit Sharma. Who has won the IPL title for Mumbai Indians 5 times in their last eight seasons?
On Tuesday 10 November, Rohit Sharma defeated Delhi Capitals at the International Stadium in Dubai to win the trophy. It became the second team after Chennai Super Kings to defend their title very successfully.
In 2013, Rohit Sharma was named captain for Mumbai Indians in place of Ricky Ponting. And he has been very successful in turning his fortune around.
Former Allrounder player Irfan Pathan said that Nagpur-born Rohit Sharma is quite comfortable and knows the art of using his bowler gracefully depending on the match situation.
He said that the way Rohit Sharma used Yadav shows his class. He said that any captain must have gone with a Similar, Rohit Sharma used his instinct.
This clearly shows how clear his thinking was. Irfan Pathan further said that Rohit Sharma is a combination of Sourav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Both of which were among the greatest Indian captains to play cricket. The same Irfan Pathan said that he is a mixture of Dhoni and Dada.
Sourav Ganguly relied on his bowlers and went away with it. The same Mahendra Singh Dhoni relied heavily on his bowlers but they always took a comfortable decision.
During a game, Irfan Pathan was very impressed with how Rohit Sharma used Jasprit Bumrah in the best way. Which has helped the Mumbai Indians team to a convincing win.
Irfan Pathan said that Jasprit Bumrah was used in the 17th over. However, Rohit Sharma uses Jasprit Bumrah in the 18th over which brought Bumrah back to the game in Mumbai’s favor.
He further said that the way Rohit used Pollard was worth it. Look at him, he did not bowl in the beginning but when there was a lot of pace in the wicket, he used Pollard.
Rohit Sharma had a roller coaster ride in IPL 2020. He played some easy matches at the start of the tournament. But he had to sit out due to a hamstring injury.
However, Rohit Sharma not only made a comeback but also played a brilliant innings in the final match to lead his team to victory.
