T20 World Cup Final: Rohit Sharma is not a captain but a leader, says Piyush Chawla ahead of IND vs SA


Rohit Sharma is not a captain but a leader,

Former India cricketer Piyush Chawla heaped praise on India skipper Rohit Sharma for leading the side by example in their 2024 T20 World Cup campaign, and how that leads up to a great factor of confidence ahead of their Final against South Africa. Chawla believes that India should be focused on attaining their long-desired goal of clinching an ICC trophy, after having performed exceptionally well throughout the entire tournament. After having thrashed Jos Buttler-led England in a pretty one-sided semi-final on June 27, Rohit Sharma will have the opportunity to clinch his first ICC trophy as India captain.

Rohit’s explosive batting from the India opening stand, has been one of the pivotal factors in India’s consistent success throughout this T20 World Cup. Similar to South Africa, India will be leading into the final on an unbeaten streak and will be hoping for a similar turn of fate in Barbados. India now have the chance to bury their memories of the 2023 ODI World Cup by ending their 13-year-long wait for an ICC trophy, but Rohit will know how big of a challenge the Aiden Markram-led persistent Proteas. Having already completed their revenge against Australia for the 2023 final loss and then against England for the 2022 T20 World Cup semi-final loss, Rohit will be hoping to go the full distance on Saturday.

Speaking to Star Sports, Piyush Chawla lauded Rohit’s leadership qualities and how this India side looks poised for greatness in this T20 World Cup final.

” The way Rohit has set an example, I have even said this before, that he is not a captain but a leader. When a leader sets an example, the rest follow that, and that’s what’s been happening in this India team,” Chawla said.

” We have seen that the way this tournament has panned out for India, they are not dependent on just one or two players. Everyone is performing and chipping in, which is very important. They have put in good performances to ensure this success, and that that shows how high the confidence is,” Chawla added.

It is yet to see if Rohit can finally get his hand on that World Cup trophy, and who comes out on top after this battle of unbeaten streaks against South Africa.
