When grading Rohit Sharma’s abilities as a leader, former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh gave him a score of ten out of ten. Sharma is currently the captain of India. In response to a tweet by Sportskeeda that asked users to grade the Hitman’s captaincy, Yuvraj provided his feedback.
Rohit-led In the first one-day international match of the three-match series, which took place on December 4 in Dhaka, Bangladesh defeated Team India by one wicket. In their first innings, the Men in Blue were bowled out for 186 runs after 41.2 overs had been played. In retaliation, the bowlers brought the score of the hosts down to 136/9. Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s score of 38 not out out of 39 was the deciding factor in Bangladesh’s victory, which was a comeback victory.
In spite of having the upper hand, India was unable to exert any pressure on the opposition, as the final Bangladeshi combination of Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman (10* off 11) added 51 runs for their team. As a result of India’s surprising loss, many former cricket players and analysts have voiced their disapproval of Rohit’s performance as captain of the Indian team.
On the organization’s official Twitter handle, Sportskeeda published a post that posed the question, “How would you rank Rohit’s leadership?” Yuvraj responded to the tweet by writing the following message, in which he showed his support for his old teammate:”10 out of 10.
In addition to the scrutiny that has been directed on Rohit’s leadership of the team, his batting performance has also come under scrutiny. On Sunday in Dhaka, his troubles continued, and he was eventually dismissed for 27 off of 31.
Reflecting on his team’s loss, Rohit Sharma said, “No excuses, we are used to such types of conditions.”
After Team India suffered a narrow defeat in the first one-day international match against Bangladesh, Rohit stated that there were no excuses for the defeat because they are accustomed to competing in such conditions. After the game, he gave his post-match analysis, saying, “The pitch was a bit tough, the odd ball was spinning.” You need to be familiar with the rules of the game.
There is no room for excuses because we are accustomed to being in such a predicament. In these conditions, we need to examine the best strategy for batting against their spinners. The genes are there, and these guys have spent their entire lives playing in such harsh environments. It is all about how well you can handle pressure.
The 35-year-old player also admitted that the Men in Blue were unable to score a sufficient number of runs during the game. When asked about the bad performance at the plate, he responded by saying, “There weren’t enough runs. Additional 30–40 repetitions would have made a significant difference. We might have been able to make it there if we had KL and Washy (Washington Sundar).
It is not simple to make a comeback, and unfortunately, we lost wickets in the middle of the game. If you look at how we bowled in retrospect, you’ll see that even in the final few overs, when we really wanted to get a wicket, we still managed to take wickets all the way through.
In order for India to avoid falling behind 1-0 in the three-game series, they need to secure victory in the second one-day international (ODI), which will take place in Dhaka on December 7.
