Gavaskar lauds Rohit’s captaincy
Sunil Gavaskar, former right handed Indian batsman has praised India’s stand in captain Rohit Sharma in the on going Asia Cup for his brave moves and excellent captaincy so far in the tournament.
Indian team is unbeaten in the on going 14th edition of Asia Cup as they have won all the three games they played so far. One of the main reasons for India’s successful run in the tournament is their bowling.

Main factor that has made the successful bowling by Indians in the tournament is the captaincy of their stand in skipper Rohit Sharma. After been given a rest for regular skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma was set to lead the team in a big tournament after the Nidhas Trophy that happened in Sri Lanka earlier this year.
More importantly the stand in skipper is also contributing with the bat also with two half centuries so far. His role as a captain and an opening batsman is been phenomenal. For Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has appreciated the opening batsman for his successful tournament so far.
He has pointed out the fact that Rohit has impressed the former opening batsman when Rohit made his captaincy debut for Mumbai Indians.
“The first time he led Mumbai Indians to an IPL win, that was his first season as a captain and he impressed straight away with his knowledge of what to do next more than what to plan.”
The former batsman has also praised the stand in skipper that he does very well as a captain when he is been asked to lead the side.“Every time he has got an opportunity to captain India, he has shown his acumen,” said Gavaskar. “He has shown how patient he can be, and then as a batsman, the added responsibility only makes him better.”
