Less than 2 months remain until early 2023. This time the World Cup will be held in India. Ahead of the World Cup, pundits and former cricketers have begun to voice their opinions. Yuvraj Singh was also involved in this. Yuvraj, who was part of India’s squad for the 2011 World Cup, spoke about India’s captain Rohit Sharma and made a unique request to BCCI.
Speaking to Indranil Basu, Yuvraj Singh said that Rohit Sharma is a good captain but he needs to be given a good team. Speaking about the captain who won the World Cup in India in 2011, Yuvraj said that Dhoni is also a good captain but he also has a good team with experienced players. The 2011 World Cup featured many star players such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh.
However, currently Team India has a few players like Mohammed Shami, KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah who were part of Team India in the 2019 World Cup. In addition, there are many young players in the team who have the ability to win games on their own. Although the Indian team has played without players like KL Rahul, Jaspreet Bumrah and Shreyas in the last few years. These players left the team due to injury. However, there is speculation about his return ahead of the World Cup.
Yuvraj praised Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, saying, “I think Rohit has become a very good captain because he captained Mumbai in the IPL for a long time.” He is a very reasonable person under pressure. You have to give a good team to a sensible captain who also has experience. “MS Dhoni was a good captain, but did he also have a good crew?”
