Sunil Gavaskar said, ‘Rohit Sharma is underestimated as a captain. He won five titles for Mumbai. See an example from the match against Lucknow, when Rohit bowled Madhwal over the wicket to dismiss Ayush Badoni. Also, he was asked to bowl round the wicket to dismiss left-handed batsman Nicholas Pooran. Where bowlers are in flow, they don’t change direction quickly. If Dhoni had done this instead of Rohit, everyone would have said what a brilliant plan he had to get Puran out. But this kind of work is not done for Rohit.

Sunil Gavaskar also said, ‘Rohit included Nehal Wadhera as an influential player in the match against Lucknow. That was a very good decision. Wadhera played an inning of 23 runs in 12 balls to take Mumbai to 182 runs. When a team bats first, it usually brings in the bowler as the key player. But the way Rohit used Nehal while batting first was a brilliant move. That’s why he should be given credit for this.
