HIGHLIGHTS

  • Suryakumar Yadav has lauded Rohit Sharma for winning five IPL titles for Mumbai Indians
  • Off the field he is very different, he is very fun guy to be around: Suryakumar

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma is not just a brilliant leader who has won five IPL titles for the team but also an interesting character to be around off the field as well.

According to MI batsman Suryakumar Yadav, there’s no other individual as perfect to be around, who jokes around and also shares a lot of knowledge with his teammates, than Rohit Sharma.

Suryakumar, who made his India debut this year against England, was bought by the Mumbai Indians in 2012 and again in 2018. Since the IPL 2018 season, Suryakumar Kumar Yadav has consistently been one of the top performers for the Mumbai Indians.

“I think he has been doing an amazing job and having 5 titles with Mumbai Indians is a proof of that. Result is in front of everyone,” Suryakumar said on Sports Today.

“Off the field he is very different, he is very fun guy to be around. On the field everyone has seen him how he handles the situation and how he is there for everyone but off the field I think he is the most perfect guy to be around, he jokes around and even there he has a lot of knowledge to share to every cricketer out here. This is a very good point about him which makes him different.”

Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians claimed their fifth IPL title last year in the UAE and will be looking to do the same in IPL 2021 to complete a hat trick of triumphs.

Rohit Sharma will once again lead a well-set team that is all-embracing ahead of the new season. Last year they already achieved what they were looking for, to win the IPL in an even year, and will be eyeing another milestone as they look to make it a hat-trick of IPL titles this year.
