Former Delhi cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Thursday commented that Indian skipper Virat Kohli can lead the team effectively as he has players like Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni with him in the team. He additionally added that the effectiveness of one’s captaincy skills is put to question when you lead an IPL team.

” a long way to go for him. Kohli was outstanding in the last World Cup but still, he has a long way to go. He captains so well in international cricket because he has got Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni for a long time. Captaincy qualifications are noticed when you are leading a franchise, when you do not have other players supporting you,” Gambhir told the media while interacting with the students of a university.

“I have been sincere whenever I have spoken about this. See what Rohit Sharma has produced for Mumbai Indians, see what Dhoni has obtained for Chennai Super Kings. If you relate that with RCB, the issues are there for everyone to see”, the former left-handed Indian opener added.

The former left-handed batsman voted for Rohit Sharma to play as an opener in the test format and believed that the Mumbai Indians is too good a player to be missing out from the playing side.

“I think KL Rahul has been given a much longer run than intimated. It is an opportunity for Rohit Sharma to open the batting in Test cricket. If you pick him in the team, he has to be a part of the playing XI. If he does not require in your playing XI, then there is no point in selecting him in the team of 16. He is high-grade of a player to be out of the playing side,” Gambhir stated.

Gambhir also revealed the fact that he considered the departure from cricket in 2007 after being left out of the 50-over World Cup squad.
