Jasprit Bumrah on Rohit Sharma’s captaincy

India’s star pacer, Jasprit Bumrah showered praise on skipper Rohit Sharma and said that the 37-year-old has been phenomenal as the captain of the Indian team.

Currently, Rohit is the third highest run-scorer in the tournament with 248 runs at a strike rate of 155.97 after playing seven matches. 

Speaking in a video shared on the official Instagram account of ICC, Bumrah said that in the previous ODI World Cup 2023 Rohit was very proactive and he also revealed that the Indian skipper gave a lot of freedom to his players.

“Rohit Sharma has been absolutely phenomenal. Even in the previous World Cup you know, he has been proactive, he gives a lot of freedom to his players, he lets the players express themselves. When he feels the right time, he shares his own experience during the match. So ya, it feels really great and I feel very happy playing under him and the confidence of the group is also very high,” Bumrah said.

If India does end up winning the T20 World Cup, then it will be Rohit’s first ICC trophy as the Indian captain.
