‘International captaincy’s mental strain’ – Graeme Smith on Rohit Sharma struggles

‘International captaincy’s mental strain’ – Graeme Smith, on Rohit Sharma struggles. So far for the Mumbai Indians, Rohit Sharma has only scored 108 runs in five innings.

Former South African captain Graeme Smith believes Rohit Sharma’s international leadership roles have taken a mental toll on him following his recent IPL struggles. The 34-year-old was recently named India’s captain across all formats. Hhe’s had a fantastic start to his captaincy career in international cricket. However, Rohit has only scored 108 runs in the five innings he has played in this IPL, and his lack of form has cost the Mumbai Indians four games at the start of their season.

Suryakumar Yadav’s injury also didn’t help the team in the first two games. However, their main concerns are related to their bowling. Daniel Sams gave up 35 off a single over to Pat Cummins’ assault, while Tymal Mills has been on and off so far. Rohit has been dubbed a modern-day batting legend, having amassed some extraordinary numbers in international cricket in recent years, and Smith has suggested that he lead the team’s fightback from the front.

MI will win more games if Rohit Sharma scores runs: Graeme Smith

Smith mentioned that when Rohit provides a good start to the franchise, the Mumbai Indians tend to win more games, and he wondered if the international captaincy responsibilities had taken a toll on him mentally. He noted that the Mumbai Indians have a strong batting line-up and believes that once the batters get going, they will be difficult to stop.

“Rohit is the energy at the top of the food chain. Gets them off to a good start and sets up the game for everyone else to play. MI will win a lot of games when he is scoring runs. This is his first tournament as MI captain since taking over as India’s white-ball captain. Is there a cost to the mental strain in the IPL? “It’s something to think about,” Smith said, according to cricket.com.

“He’s such an important player.” If you look at the lineup, you’ll notice that Rohit, a fantastic player, has yet to find his groove. You have Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav out for a few games. He has now arrived and is looking good, followed by Pollard as the power finisher. You have Brevis, but he’s a young man. “That’s a very good batting order,” he added.
