Rohit Sharma‘s impact as a charismatic leader in the ODI World Cup 2023 has become the focal point of passionate discussions among cricket enthusiasts worldwide. The right-handed opener has led India from the front and served as the driving force, igniting awe-inspiring performances that have defined India’s run in the ongoing tournament.

Adding a twist to Rohit’s tale, the former BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has made a shocking disclosure regarding Hitman’s captaincy takeover of the Indian cricket team during his tenure.

It is worth noting that while leading the side in T20I and ODI format, Rohit was appointed as the Test team captain on February 19, 2022, after Virat Kohli stepped down from the coveted role.

Sourav Ganguly’s big disclosure on Rohit Sharma’s captaincy

In an exclusive interview given to Kolkata TV, Ganguly revealed that Rohit initially hesitated to take on the captaincy of the Test squad due to the immense pressure of leading across all formats. The 51-year-old acknowledged intervening and persuading the Mumbai-born cricketer, ultimately making him ready to take the helm.

However, Ganguly also expressed satisfaction with Rohit’s acceptance and highlighted the positive outcomes, urging observers to note the tangible results under his leadership.

“Rohit doesn’t wanted the captaincy because there was a lot of pressure on playing all formats. It had come on a stage and told him that if he doesn’t say yes, I will announce his name. I am happy that he listened to me and is now leading from the front. You guys can check the results,” Ganguly said.
