The former Indian all-rounder Yusuf Pathan has come up with a very interesting answer when he was asked to choose a better skipper between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both Kohli and Sharma are currently on the national duty on the English tour for the rescheduled Test followed by the T20I and ODI series.
Earlier, Virat Kohli was leading the Indian team in all the formats of the game. However, he decided to step down from the T20I captaincy following the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Later, the Indian superstar was also sacked as the ODI skipper, and then he resigned from the ODI and Test captaincy as well. Subsequently, the BCCI appointed Rohit Sharma as the new Indian skipper across all formats.
Now, the Indian team is currently preparing for the English challenge in the fifth and final Test at the Edgbaston, scheduled to be commencing on the 1st of July. In case you don’t know, India is leading the five-game series 2-1 after four matches. Interestingly, Virat Kohli was the Indian captain in those four Tests. Now, it will be interesting to see how Team India responds under Rohit Sharma in the English conditions.
Recently, the destructive all-rounder was asked to choose the better captain between the Hitman and the Run-Machine; to which the elder Pathan brother gave an interesting reply.
“Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli, who is the better captain?” Pathan responded by picking Virat as the better captain in the Tests, while he chose Rohit as the better T20 skipper. “In T20 cricket Rohit Sharma and In Test cricket Virat Kohli,” replied Yusuf Pathan.
Rohit Sharma has a formidable record as a captain in the T20 cricket as Mumbai Indians have won record five IPL championships under his leadership, while India’s most memorable overseas Test wins have come under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.
