Rohit Sharma's captaincy was described by Sourav Ganguly as "not someone who's into your face."

Sourav Ganguly, the president of the BCCI, described Rohit Sharma on Wednesday as a little “laid-back” and said the Mumbai native should be given some time to generate results. Since the 35-year-old Rohit replaced Virat Kohli as the team’s full-time captain across all formats, India has had as many as seven leaders leading the squad at different times due to workload management, COVID, and injury concerns. Ganguly praised Rohit, who has led Mumbai Indians to a record-tying five Indian Premier League (IPL) championships, and suggested that before he is compared to the likes of the legendary MS Dhoni and Kohli, he should be given a longer leash.

During the Bengal Peerless event on “Leadership in Modern India” here, Ganguly said, “Rohit Sharma is definitely a bit laid-back, who approaches things in a very calm and cautious way and not someone who’s into your face all the time.”

The former captain was responding to a question regarding the succession of Indian leaders since he retired.

Over the years, India has produced several outstanding captains. MS Dhoni, who handled the shift brilliantly and continues to win praise for both his franchise and India (Chennai Super Kings).

“Then Virat Kohli arrived, who also has a stellar track record. He was a distinct kind of captain and operated in a unique way.

“Every person is unique, but what matters is the outcome and how many victories and defeats you have. I don’t compare captains; everyone has a different style of management.

“Giving someone responsibility and then expecting him to carry it out in accordance with our wishes, in my opinion, is incorrect. When you support someone, let him serve as captain, allow him some time to produce results, and then observe the outcome.” Back in the 2003 World Cup final against Australia, as the Ricky Poting-led team played with the situation, Ganguly’s decision to bowl may have drawn some criticism.Indian onslaught results in a huge 359/2 score.

Australia triumphed by a huge 125 runs to win for the second time in a row.

No regrets about the choice, according to Ganguly.

“In hindsight, I don’t believe. Although I was sad that I didn’t win the championship, I don’t believe the coin toss was the cause. We played poorly “said said.

When asked about FIFA’s ban on Indian football, he responded as follows: “Since I don’t deal with football, I can’t respond to your question. But in my opinion, every sporting organisation has a system and its own set of rules and guidelines. At BCCI, we also have policies and procedures.”
