2 players who made IPL debut under Rohit Sharma and are now captains in IPL 2023
Rohit Sharma is one of the best captains that the IPL has seen. In fact, he is the most successful skipper in IPL, having won five trophies. A few players who started their IPL careers under his leadership are also doing well as a captain in the IPL. On that note, in this article, we take a look at 2 players who made their IPL debut under Rohit Sharma and are now captains in IPL 2023.
1) Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya made his debut when he was relatively unknown. He became a prime weapon for Rohit Sharma as the seasons progressed. Currently, Hardik Pandya is the captain of Gujarat Titans. He won the IPL last season and also got his name entered into the discussion when it comes to Team India captaincy. Since then, Hardik has also led the Indian Team in both the T20I and the ODI formats.
2) Nitish Rana
Nitish Rana is one of the players who made his IPL debut under Rohit Sharma and is now a captain in IPL 2023. The Delhi cricketer made his debut in 2016. He was an instant success as he did well for two years in the team, mainly at No.3. Currently, in the absence of Shreyas Iyer, he is leading KKR. Although the results have not gone exactly their way, Rana has been a good skipper and has left many impressed with his conduct. With this performance, KKR at least need not be worried about captaincy in the future because they will always have a safe backup.
