IND vs ENG LIVE: Why it is important for Rohit Sharma to lead?

  • While India have done decently without Rohit Sharma, his presence at the top gives India a solid foundation.
  • Furthermore, India have just 15 T20s left to decide the final combination for the T20 World Cup.
  • India have about 15 T20 games to play (3 vs England, 5 against the West Indies, about 5 in Asia Cup and 3 against Australia (September).
  • While KL Rahul will be a big miss due to his surgery, India will have the full-strength squad from 2nd T20.
  • With Rohit back, Rahul Dravid will have the chance to iron out the combinations in the next eight games against England and West Indies.
  • Rohit Sharma’s form is also of concern. Since taking over captaincy reins, Rohit’s willow hasn’t done the talking. The England series will give him a chance to get his form back.
