After his side’s 4th title victory on Sunday night, Sachin sat down for an interview in which he was asked to compare the leadership style of Rohit and MS Dhoni. He said that both the players possess great ability to read the situation.

“I think they (Rohit and Dhoni) are pretty sharp. MS has been leading for a number of years and Rohit has also been incredibly successful. So, the ability to read the game and having that peripheral (situational) awareness makes them special captain,” he said.

Moreover, he also applauded Rohit’s progress as a leader as he has learned a lot from the experiences of fellow captains including Dhoni who has been around since his debut.
