Harbhajan Singh said that But it is unfair to criticise Rohit alone, that he is not scoring runs, putting on weight, not captaining well.
Harbhajan Singh on Rohit Sharma
“I find that people are going a bit overboard the way Rohit has been criticised. Cricket is a team sport and one individual cannot take you from one place to another,”. Harbhajan Singh was quoted as saying by India Today.
“Team India didn’t do well in WTC final, and yes, you talk about that performance and move on from there. But it is unfair to criticise Rohit alone, that he is not scoring runs, putting on weight, not captaining well. I think he is a brilliant leader,” the Turbanator concluded.
Harbhajan Singh further added that
“I have played with him (Rohit) and watched him closely. He commands a lot of respect not only in MI dressing room but also in the Indian dressing room. So I think it’s unfair to judge him on basis of recent results. He will come good and we need to show faith in him and we need to support him rather than pinpointing that you are not doing this or that,” concluded the Ex-Indian cricketer.
Rohit Sharma and his men are on the West Indies Tour. The tour starts on July 12th with the two test matches.
