In the absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma has led from the front which has won the heart of the former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram who has praised him a lot for his captaincy skills. Rohit went through a stern captaincy test against Hong Kong and after coming out on top in that game, he has been proactive from the word go in the following matches. Moreover, his form with the bat has also been exceptional while opening the innings for the team.
Recently, he scored a century against Pakistan in the Super Four game and won the game for India while chasing the total of 238 runs. Wasim Akram, while speaking to media, was delighted to see Rohit Sharma grow as the captain and also praised the way Shikhar Dhawan is batting. He felt that both of them are making batting look so easy at the top of the order which hasn’t allowed the middle-order to come under pressure even a bit.
