‘Felt Rohit Sharma Might leave Captaincy Like Virat Kohli’ Ex – Indian Cricketer Makes BIG Statement

Virat Kohli has been shocking his fans since he announced his retirement from T20, and then as RCB captain. While Virat Kohli didn’t have a good time as captain at RCB, ex-Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar admitted that he felt Mumbai Indians Captain Rohit Sharma might also take the same route and make Kieron Pollard the next captain.

Manjrekar said that Pollard is not yet up to the mark he can ‘still add value to the MI scheme of things.


“I feel Pollard still adds value. [Before the season] I even felt Rohit Sharma might leave captaincy like Virat Kohli, relax a bit, play as a pure batter and hand the responsibility to Pollard who is a brilliant international captain,” Manjrekar said on ESPNCricinfo.

Addressing Pollard’s capability, Manjrekar said that the West Indian player will contribute greatly in high-pressure situations. He said that Pollard can score more under pressure, “Pollard still has the capability, I can see that from the sixes he hits. He’ll contribute in the pressure match, the crunch game. But they need to reach there first and that’s not on Pollard, it never has been. He’s never contributed throughout the season for Mumbai Indians. He plays one innings in a pressure game and sees the team through. Others need to work better because Pollard is doing his usual job.”


MI is yet under the pressure to win a game in IPL 2022 and will face off with Punjab Kings today. Mumbai is desperate to open their account in IPL 2022 and get their victory kickstarted.
