Indian captain Rohit Sharma is all set to lead the national team for the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2024. The 37-year-old is currently participating in the globally popular T20 tournament, Indian Premier League, where he is a part of the Mumbai Indians. Before the onset of the 17th season of the cash-rich league, Sharma was removed as the skipper and was replaced by the former GT captain Hardik Pandya

While several fans welcomed the decision by the franchise, others heavily criticised it and hailed it as wrong. Sharma has been with the team for a long time and guided the side to their five IPL trophies. Needless to say, the team has done wonders under the leadership of Sharma, and unfortunately, they haven’t been able to do the same under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. 

Five reasons Rohit Sharma is better captain than Hardik Pandya

In this article, we will go through five reasons why Rohit Sharma is a better captain than Hardik Pandya. 

More Experienced


Rohit Sharma is a far more experienced player than Rohit Sharma, considering he led MI for over a decade. On the other hand, Pandya has only two years of captaincy, during his tenure with the 2022 IPL winners, Gujarat Titans. Apart from this, Sharma has been playing for India since 2007, while Hardik Pandya made his debut for India in 2016.
