Rohit believes in taking instinctive decisions: Parthiv

Parthiv Patel also admired Rohit’s leadership skills backing his players despite bad form

Over the last few months in Indian cricket, players have spoke highly of the stability and the calmness in the dressing room. Dinesh Karthik, prior to the fourth T20I against West Indies talked about how players are given an opportunity to fail, showing the trust of the management. 

On the same lines, former Indian star Parthiv Patel, opened up on Rohit Sharma’s style of captaincy, stating that his backing was influential in Avesh Khan finding his feet. 

"I have played under Rohit Sharma's captaincy at Mumbai Indians and the one thing that stands out is how he backs players who aren't performing. He is vocal about them even in public and in press conferences, as we saw with the case of Avesh Khan. Rohit backed him even after four failures and he delivered with a Man-of-the-Match performance," said Parthiv on his YouTube channel.

Alongside that, the southpaw also dissected Rohit’s leadership, admiring his ability of taking instinctive decisions in the field. 

"Rohit believes in taking instinctive decisions on the ground rather than pre-meditating them. When a crunch situation arises, he takes a call according to the situation and it is one of the main reasons why he has won five IPL trophies with Mumbai Indians. India have also won multi-national tournaments like the Asia Cup and Nidahas Trophy under Rohit's captaincy," he added.

In Rohit’s absence, India have greatly benefited from Shikhar Dhawan’s leadership. The southpaw stepped up for India as a captain in the ODI series against Sri Lanka and West Indies, where he was leading a weakened Indian unit. Despite that, Dhawan’s relaxed style of leadership allowed the players to be expressive. 

“Shikhar Dhawan has a pretty laid-back style of captaincy where he doesn't take too much pressure and keeps the team atmosphere light. He does back his players, but most importantly he also gives them space to execute their own plans.”

"This is so important because captaining a team is difficult when the main players are rested. The fringe players need to be given confidence in executing their skills and Dhawan has done that really well," said Parthiv.

KL Rahul’s return meant that Dhawan won’t lead the https://www.cricket.com/teams/4/india/players https://www.cricket.com/teams/4/india/players for the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, later this week. The first of the three ODIs start on Thursday (August 18).
