“When We Lost 4-5 Games In IPL 2013…” Anil Kumble On How Rohit Sharma Was Made Captain Of MI
The year 2023 is a very important year for the Indian cricket team and its skipper Rohit Sharma as India is scheduled to play in the finals of the World Test Championship 2021-23 on 7 June 2023 plus the ICC ODI World Cup will also take place this year in India. India is the favourites to win both the trophies and it will be a great opportunity for Rohit Sharma to get his name craved in golden words in the history of the Indian Cricket by making his team win both the trophies.
As far as the IPL is concerned, Rohit Sharma is the most successful skipper of the league as Mumbai Indians has won the tournament 5 times under his leadership and MI has also won Champions Trophy 2 times under his captaincy.
Recently, the former Indian cricketer Anil Kumble revealed how Rohit Sharma became the skipper of MI. While speaking on Jio Cinema, the former cricketer stated that in 2013 when MI lost 4-5 matches, he and John Wright went to Rohit Sharma and asked him whether he was ready to take up the captaincy of the team. Kumble said that Rohit Sharma responded in positive and since then, he has been incredible as a skipper and has won the maximum IPL titles as a captain.
