As of now, Virat Kohli is the Indian skipper and is likely to lead the Indian team in the T20 World Cup. However, Rohit Sharma who has led Mumbai Indians to 4 IPL titles is another option who could be considered for this role. Let us delve into the possibilities between the two stalwart players.
Today match prediction will be an important factor here as it will help in predicting that captain for the Indian team in the T20 World Cup.
The current Indian skipper has a very good record as captain in T20Is for India. The master batsman has captained India in 37 T20Is out of which, he has won 22, lost 11, tied 2 and 2 matches have been a no-result game.
His winning percentage stands at 65.71. If we compare his numbers with MS Dhoni as captain in T20Is, the former skipper has skippered India in 72 T20Is and has won 41 matches, lost 28, tied 1 and 2 were no result games. His winning percentage stands at 59.28.
The Indian vice-captain in White-ball cricket Rohit Sharma has led India in 19 T20Is as well. Out of the 19 matches as captain, he has won 15 and lost 4 with a staggering win percentage of 78.95.
He holds the best winning percentage when it comes to leading in more than 10 T20Is. Apart from his captaincy record in T20Is, he has gained immaculate success in domestic T20s as well.
His prowess can be measured from the fact that he has led Mumbai Indians to four IPL titles from just 6 editions. His ability to keep calm under pressure and make the right decisions at the right time is something praiseworthy. With Rohit at the helm, the Indian team management are assured of a great successor to Virat Kohli.
