Asia Cup 2023 Final: Rohit Sharma’s Asia Cup And ODI Captaincy Stats. Rohit Sharma was appointed as India’s ODI captain on December 6, 2021, right after he replaced Virat Kohli as India’s T20I captain. Later, he became India’s captain in all three formats. Back then, fans had high hopes for the hitman, as he had a brilliant record as the captain of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Rohit Sharma is the most successful captain in the history of the tournament. However, so far, he has not been able to impress much as the captain of the Indian Cricket Team.
Under his captaincy, India has not been successful in winning any major trophies. They got eliminated against England in the 2022 T20 World Cup, which was Rohit’s first tournament as the permanent captain. Moreover, their hopes for the 2023 ODI World Cup do not seem to be so high either.
Currently, India is participating in the 2023 Asia Cup, and their performance there has been decent. They made it to the finals, where they will take on Sri Lanka. It will be played at Sri Lanka’s R. Premadasa Stadium at 3:00 PM IST on September 17. Talking about the 2023 Asia Cup further, India was 2nd on the Group A points table in the Group Stage, right behind Pakistan, and first on the Super 4 points table. They have played 5 matches in the tournament so far and lost only one.
Rohit Sharma’s ODI captaincy stats and Comparison with Virat Kohli
|Rohit Sharma Stats||Record|
So far, Rohit Sharma has played 34 matches for India as their captain and won 25 of them. He has a win percentage of 72.87 and has lost only eight ODI matches. However, his captaincy in big matches is questionable and that is where the problem arises.
Virat Kohli, during his time, led Team India as their captain in ODIs in 95 matches. He lost only 27 of them and won 68. Thus, he has a win of 68.42, which is very impressive and better than Rohit Sharma’s record considering how many matches he has led India in.
