As a player, the one thing that matters a great deal to anyone is the faith of your captain. In cricket, the role of captain is more crucial given how much command he exerts over the team. So, if a captain has faith in your abilities you are able to focus on the task in hand than on other things going around.
IPL has played a major role in the growth and development of Jasprit Bumrah. He is one of the shining stars of Mumbai Indians and has done exceptionally well under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
Jasprit Bumrah has shed light on Rohit Sharma the captain and revealed his special quality as a leader.
“He’s seen me before I was an India player and he’s seeing me now. He’s seen phases that I’ve been through. The thing with Rohit is, he’s never been different with me. He used to back me with a lot of space then and he does it now. He’ll come, ask me what I see or believe in, set the field accordingly and then keeps backing me up all the time. Some days it works, some days it doesn’t but it’s always so reassuring,” said the 25-year-old.
