Suresh Raina Comments on Rohit Sharma's Captaincy, Takes MS Dhoni's NameHome > News Shots > Sports news
India's limited-overs deputy captain Rohit Sharma's captaincy has both been criticised and applauded by public. However, Suresh Raina feels that Rohit's calmness and ability to motivate players makes him very similar to MS Dhoni.
"Rohit's captaincy is very similar to MSD. The way he does things calmly, the way he motivates people. He is bindaas, he knows that whenever he goes to bat he'll make runs. So this sort of confidence is there in a player then the rest of the players also pick that up from him... this is what I like about Rohit.
"I recently saw in that final against Pune, Rohit made some 2-3 great moves as captain of Mumbai... in crunch situations the way he made changes between overs on a dry wicket, the way he released pressure then created pressure. Watching that you know that he is taking all these decisions himself. Yes, there must be some advice coming from outside but in his mind he knows what to do when. No wonder he has won so many trophies as captain," Raina said on Sportscreen's YouTube page.
