Meanwhile, former Indian opener and cricket expert Aakash Chopra questioned if Rohit can win multiple titles if he was RCB captain. Now, Rohit Sharma came up with an epic response to Chopra’s remarks.

He added that there is no reason to think if he can lift the trophy while leading with the other teams. “Lot of people, I hear say that can he (Rohit) do it with other teams? Firstly, why shall I need to do it with other teams? There is a certain way this franchise wants to go and same direction I want to go as well, both as a player and leader,” he was quoted as saying by Outlook.

“Did this team become good overnight? No. It’s just that this franchise doesn’t believe in chopping and changing. And every player, including Rohit Sharma, was available (2011) at auctions. Just that MI picked and believed in building a team,” Rohit Sharma further added.
