Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma continue to be two mainstays of the Men in Blue for years. Time and again, there have been questions as to who can handle the captaincy of T20 format better.
There were reports in the air that Rohit Sharma was set to take over Kohli after 2019 World Cup but the committee showed an inclination towards the RCB skipper. The 31-year-old has been leading the Indian team in all the formats of the game right now.
On the other hand, MI skipper has been a stiff competition for Kohli in the T20 format for possessing too many qualities. Rohit has the tendency to remain calm, knows how to put bowlers to perfect use and over all of it, has won the IPL title for four times.
Mumbai Indians has bagged the IPL title for the maximum times in the history of the cash-rich league and all has come under the guidance of Sharma, whereas Kohli and his men are still struggling to lift their maiden IPL title.
In the light of the last game between Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore, former English skipper Michael Vaughan has proposed his opinions on who is a better T20 captain among the two star cricketers.
Rohit Sharma for me is a magnificent T20 captain: Michael Vaughan
“Incredible cricketers. Two greats of the game Rohit Sharma for me is a magnificent T20 captain. He is a little bit calmer and a little bit cooler. He is very smart as a leader. I think in T20 cricket, I think he has got a better plan on how to play the game. I still feel Virat is still trying to find his feet in how to play as a leader in T20 cricket,” Vaughan told Gaurav Kapoor on Cricbuzz.
The RCB vs MI game saw a topsy turvy ride as the latter posted huge 201/3 on board but some explosive hitting from Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard levelled the scores. The match slipped into dramatic super over and Navdeep Saini showed some world class bowling to restrict opponents on just seven runs. The duo of Kohli and AB de Villiers got the victory for the team from that spot.
