There are a lot of debates regarding the captaincy of both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. There are quite a few fans, who feel Rohit Sharma should captain India in limited-over formats, given how brilliant he has been when it comes to captaining Mumbai Indians or the Indian team in absence of Virat Kohli. There is a perception that Kohli is tactically not as smart and calculated as Rohit Sharma.

Indian wrist-spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal, who is quite close to both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, opened up on the difference between the captaincy styles of both the players.

He was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times, “They have their own style. While Virat bhai looks a little aggressive on the field like a warrior, Rohit bhaiya looks calmer and is in Zen mode.”

Chahal also pointed out to one thing that is common between both of them. “Both are top-class when it comes to their skills. The best part is that both give the bowlers the freedom to set our own fields and express ourselves. They are always there to back us when the going is a bit tough and are equally appreciative when we bowl well,” he said.
