Apart from Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma is now the captain of India’s Test, ODI and T20 teams. With cricket constantly playing through high-pressure situations, former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar said he hoped Rohit MI would step down from the leadership. Even if that didn’t happen before the season, will he give the reins to someone else on the team and relax and concentrate on batting?

“His record for the last 3-4 seasons is like this, the average is less than 30, the strike-rate is not 150 or 160. When he plays for India his numbers get better because then he only thinks less about himself and the team. He tried to play the role of anchor while playing in IPL. If he plays independently, we will see Rohit Sharma in Indian cricket. Says Sanjay Manjrekar ESPNcricinfo.

“Before the season I even felt that Rohit Sharma could give up the captaincy like Virat Kohli, relax a bit, play as an authentic batsman and give the responsibility to Pollard who is a great international captain.” Manjrekar added.

Aside from his personal form, he did not make any big decisions as a captain. He showed frustration on the field, beating teammates when he was determined to change.

Tim David, despite his qualities, has been benched with only two chances and Kieron Pollard is in the team despite his poor form. Despite MI’s poor form, Daniel holds on to Sams when he is out of balance.

While Daniel Sams and Basil Thampi have been ruled out, Riley Meredith continues to warm up the bench.

Although he cannot be fully blamed for MI’s disastrous season as their auction strategy was as bizarre as it could get at the unreasonable cost of injured Joffra Archer (Rs 8 crore) and Ishan Kishan (Rs 15.25 crore), the team’s decisions were up to Rohit. If MI ends up at the bottom of the table this season, then Rohit Sharma could end his captaincy after taking away 5 of their IPL titles.
