new Delhi: Former India team opener Gautam Gambhir has said that even though captain Virat Kohli is playing his role well, the vice-captain Rohit Sharma is better in this task. Gambhir said, ‘Virat Kohli is not a bad captain, but Rohit Sharma is a better captain. There is a big difference between the captaincy of these two.

Gambhir also insisted that Kohli and Rohit’s IPL records should also be considered. With 5 IPL titles, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit is the most successful leader in the history of the tournament. At the same time, talking about RCB captain Kohli, he has failed to win a single trophy for his team. Virat took charge of Bangalore in the year 2013, after that the team’s best performance was as the runner-up in 2016.
Gambhir said, if we select the players based on the performance in the IPL, then why can’t we choose the captain according to the performance in this tournament? If we do not do this, then we should not make batting and bowling in IPL the basis of selection.
