Every aspiring cricketer has a dream of captaining the national team someday. Being the leader of a cricket-crazy nation like India is no easy task. However, the honour of leading India is something that many players want a taste of.
After Virat Kohli’s tenure as India captain ended, Rohit Sharma took up the role. However, Sourav Ganguly, who was the President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) during that time, recently said in an interview that the Mumbai batter wasn’t keen on taking up captaincy as he was playing a lot of cricket and had a lot on his plate.
“Rohit [Sharma] didn’t want the captaincy because there was a lot of pressure on playing all formats – it had gone to a stage where I told him you have to say yes or I will announce your name. I am happy he has taken it now he is leading from the front and you guys can check the results,” the former India captain said in an interview with Kolkata TV.
