Cricket: Rohit Sharma should be India's T20 captain after IPL success, say former cricketers

"If Rohit Sharma doesn't become India captain, it's their loss, not Rohit's," former Test opener Gautam Gambhir told the ESPNcricinfo website."Rohit has won five IPL titles, he is the most successful captain in the history of the tournament.

"It would be a shame if he is not made the white-ball captain after this. Because there's nothing more Rohit Sharma can do."Gambhir, who led the Kolkata Knight Riders to two IPL titles, said Rohit was a significantly better captain than Kohli in these formats. headtopics.com

"Why can't you have split captaincy? It's not a bad idea," he argued."I'm not suggesting Kohli is a terribly bad captain but both got the same platform and you can judge who's better. For me, Rohit Sharma stands out as leader."

Former England captain Michael Vaughan felt delegating T20 captaincy to Rohit would help reduce Kohli's workload.More on this topic "I honestly believe that the Indian team will be better off in Twenty20 cricket being led by Rohit Sharma," Vaughan told Cricbuzz website, citing split-captaincy examples in England and Australia.
