The Indian skipper has made a good start to his career as captain Rohit Sharma after taking over from Virat Kohli. Under his leadership, India recently cleared the West Indies (ODI and T20Is) and Sri Lanka (T20Is and Tests) of their home lands. Despite Rohit agreeing that he has started his Indian captaincy, former Australian spinner Brad Hogg said the 33-year-old hitter has yet to lead the team against top teams like Australia, who could later play four tests in India later this year. . Hogg believes Rohit’s biggest test will be against big teams, including the T20 World Cup in Australia this year.
“India have won four Test matches against Australia. That will be tough for Rohit Sharma. I want to see him under pressure. Will he keep his body language calm or will we see a little temper? He has got a T20. A series against South Africa at home, a tour of England and the T20 World Cup in Australia. So the pressure tournaments are coming for Rohit right now, “Hogg said in a video on his YouTube channel.
With India’s international awards set to resume in June, Rohit will now be seen in action in the Indian Premier League (IPL) next season.
Rohit, who has taken the Mumbai Indians (MI) to five IPL titles, is expected to lead his team to the playoffs this season because he failed to do so in the previous campaign.
MI will face Delhi Capitals on Sunday, March 27, in the first match of IPL 2022.
