Watch: Jasprit Bumrah lauds ‘absolutely phenomenal’ Rohit Sharma | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Leading Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah lavished compliments on captain Rohit Sharma, stating that the 37-year-old has been ‘absolutely phenomenal’.
Rohit Sharma now stands as the third-highest run scorer in the T20 World Cup 2024. He played in seven matches and scored 248 runs at a strike rate of 155.97.
Speaking in a video shared on the official Instagram account of ICC, Bumrah said that Rohit was really proactive during the last ODI World Cup 2023, adding that the Indian captain allowed his players a great deal of freedom.
“Rohit Sharma has been absolutely phenomenal. Even in the previous World Cup you know, he has been proactive, he gives a lot of freedom to his players, he lets the players express themselves. When he feels the right time, he shares his own experience during the match. So ya, it feels really great and I feel very happy playing under him and the confidence of the group is also very high,” Bumrah said.

Nasser Hussain, a former captain of England, has stated that he had long admired the Indian captain for his batting prowess and leadership abilities. Rohit Sharma, according to the former cricket player, is like an iron fist inside a velvet glove.
“I have been a fan of Rohit for a very long time, as a batter, as a captain, and as a person. He seems to have a very calming influence. Whereas you had other captains, maybe like Virat, who wore their heart on their sleeves, and they are incredibly passionate. Rohit is like that iron fist in a velvet glove. You do not mess around with Rohit, but he is also a big brother that will put his arm around you and look after you,” Nasser said.
