Rohit as a captain when you have the likes of AB, Bravo and Kohli in the team?
AB - won what with his captaincy? While didn't the likes of Kohli did. Bravo isn't a captain. And Rohit has a mentality and has even proved to be a better captain that the mentioned picks. He has won two seasons of the IPL with his captaincy.

His favourite :p


Nonetheless, I like the players very much but they don't have that potential to be the leaders. Always keep in mind - "Your captain can't be the best player, but the best player can be your captain."

Very grounded thank you. What don't you agree on? I'd imagine some people would be surprised at the lack of Kholi, but I've always rated Rahane above him in the longer format.
