    Rohit Sharma should replace Virat Kohli as captain in LOIs

    It's amply clear that he's a much better tactician and knows how to timely rotate bowlers to his advantage.
    Should be allowed to Captain India in 2019 wc imo.

    He panicked against HK match where a minnow almost beat us.And we walloped Pakistan in CT also under Kohli. And he was won series against all Major countries as a captain.

    Said this long time ago. He is a better captain than kohli, not because of todays win. He has better vision while on field

    That's not fair. He is a 4-time IPL winning captain so obviously, he has enough leadership capability.

    Our bowlers were just below par vs HK and were still getting used to a foreign pitch. A captain cannot do much there.

    Is it 3? I didn't check. Either way 3 or 4 doesn't matter. It shows he has captaincy skills.

    its 3 and also he has Ambani plus CSK was missing for one of the seasons they won.But yes he is a good captain in IPL way better than Virat Saheb.

    That will not happen since we are so close to world cup. If Kohli does a blunder in WC, then Rohit is the obvious choice.

    Kohli’s fine. His biggest issue is keep his players under the constant threat of being removed.

    Rohit is a good captain but again it is too early to say he is better. Currently Kohli is the right choice and should remain the captain. Replacing a captain 8 months before World Cup is not a great idea.

    Both suck at taking reviews.

    As long as Dhoni is there, I don't care who's the captain. I just know whoever is, they have Dhoni behind them to guide them in tough phase. Post 2019 is where I will start to worry if Dhoni does indeed retires.

    Rohit has wealth of experience. He is relatively calmer. Kohli despite outward aggression there is a timid side to his captaincy. Saw it with RCB and India in the limited overs. He compensated with his batting somewhat.

    Kohli wants glory and like Ganguly wants to pick up young cricketers and make them legends. There is nothing wrong with the intent but I am not sure if he has that knack of identifying talent, which Ganguly had. Case in point is Sarfaraz Nawaz. He has tried making him the core of RCB and the guy can't score runs.

    Kohli loves media and wants to be known as someone who changed lives of a few cricketers, but as has been the case with RCB and India, he just doesn't pick the right talent.

    Rayudu in his current form is much better than Rahul. Rayudu would have gone to England if not for Yo-yo.
    His is a good selection.

    LOL one day ur fans want Rohit to not play for India in any form, next day he should be leading in 2019 WC.

    Let's be clear, irrespective of who captain if this Dad's army of Rayudu, DK, Dhoni and Jadhav is in our top 7, we are doomed anyways. That is where it is heading as of now. We will only depend on our top 3 - Rohit, Dhawan and Kohli. As long as they click, we will keep winning, however if all three have a bad day like the CT final showed, no one will turn up.

    Rayudu is good only for 240-250. On English pitches or even at home, that will take us nowhere. Let us not get fooled by them chasing a low total with no pressure.

    What this team needs is our young guys like Gill, Pant and Shaw (all three in excellent form), else the batting line up has mediocrity written all over it led by past by it Dhoni.

    If Rohit is made captain we can play pant for dhoni but kohli relies too much on dhoni to do work for him.

    Forget about Gill and Shaw. They are both top order batsmen and they currently don't make it to the team based on their roles. You can't teach 20-year-olds how to bat at number 5 & 6 (the toughest position to bat for a proper batsman) in 10 months. They are out of the picture in LOIs till the WC. In Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli and KL we already have 4 of our best and most experienced top 3. We don't need more help there.

    As far as Pant is concerned, it is inexcusable that he isn't in the Asia Cup but DK is. I just don't see the advantage of having DK as the backup WK for WC over Pant. He is way more talented, has played enough of IPL and now has test experience in Eng. With 8 months of more international experience, he would have been twice the player that DK has ever been. The man is already 34 years old. What is the point in investing in his at this point?
