With all its financial clout and fanfare around its cricket, India once again fell short when it mattered most, continuing its dismal performance in the major world competitions with a 209-run thrashing at the hands of Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final on Sunday, June 11 at the Oval.


The loss brought up a lot of criticism for the Indian captain Rohit Sharm, many are also saying that Rohit must left the captaincy now. Meanwhile, former Indian Cricket Board president Sourav Ganguly backed Rohit and said that he is the best choice for leading the Indian team ever since Virat Kohli left the captaincy.

“The selectors needed a captain after Virat left and Rohit was the best that time. He had won 5 IPL trophies and done well at the international level as well; he won the Asia Cup. He was the best option. India also played in the final of the Test championship, although we lost. Even two years ago, we lost the WTC final. We reached the semis of the T20 World Cup. So, the selectors picked that person who was the best for the job,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by Aaj Tak.

I have full faith on Rohit: Sourav Ganguly


Ganguly continued to back Rohit and said that he has full on him as he has won 5 IPL trophies. Ganguly didn’t stop here and said that winning IPL is more difficult than winning a World Cup considering the hectic format of the cash-rich league.

“I have full faith on Rohit. He and MS Dhoni have won 5 IPL titles. Winning the IPL isn’t easy because it’s a tough tournament. Winning the IPL is more difficult that winning a World Cup as there are 14 matches after which you take part in the playoffs. In the World Cup, it takes only 4-5 matches for a place in the semis. In the IPL, it takes 17 matches for you to become champions,” he added.
