One might say that Rohit Sharma is arguably the most successful captain in IPL history. Rohit Sharma, just like MS Dhoni, is known to keep his composure even in the most demanding of situations. There is a reason why Rohit leads Dhoni in the race of the most successful captain in IPL history. Sharma knows how to take charge of his team, controlling every aspect of the team quite magnificently.

Captainship comprises 2 essential things. The first is the ability to predict the outcome of the current scenario so that you can make decisions quickly. The second is to stick to what has been planned, whether it works in your favor or not. Sharma has all these qualities, which is why MI has had such a successful run in the IPL.

After Rohit led MI to its 5th title, there has been an ongoing debate on whether he should be handed India’s captaincy or not. If this happens, he will replace Virat Kohli, who is the current captain of the Indian National Team.

Does Rohit deserve a shot at India captaincy?

If we compare their IPL performances, it is quite clear that Rohit emerges on top. Rohit boasts an impressive win rate of 60% in the IPL. Moreover, he also has 5 IPL titles to his name. On the other hand, Kohli has never won the IPL. His win rate is 47%, which is lower than that of Rohit Sharma.

However, IPL is not the only factor that should be taken into consideration here. In the ODI format, Kohli has won 72% of the games as captain. In T20Is, the win percentage is 65. If we compare these stats with those of Dhoni, Virat leads the race. Dhoni has been the most successful captain in India’s history, winning 60% of all T20I and ODI games.

However, some supporters believe that Kohli has such superb stats only because of the strength of the current Indian team. But still, these are just opinions and not facts. Some would say that Kohli deserves to stay captain owing to such a terrific international record. However, others would want Rohit Sharma to get the chance he deserves.

Ultimately, it all boils down to what the selection committee has to say. If the selectors decide that Rohit deserves an opportunity, then Rohit would require time to build the team. However, it is all about being fair with both the players and choosing one who could be a better captain.
