Following their triumphant eighth Asia Cup win, India is now gearing up for the eagerly anticipated ICC World Cup 2023, an event they will be hosting. With the tournament on home soil, there’s heightened pressure on the Men in Blue to secure the prestigious white-ball championship.

In the lead-up to the ICC World Cup, which is scheduled to commence on October 5, former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has thrown his support behind Rohit Sharma as the captain to lead India in this important campaign. Gambhir passionately defended Sharma’s leadership, highlighting his remarkable achievement of winning five IPL trophies. In a subtle dig at Virat Kohli, Gambhir pointed out that some players in the squad haven’t tasted IPL success.

Gambhir expressed his unwavering confidence, stating, “There has never been any doubt about Rohit’s captaincy abilities. His track record of securing five IPL titles is an outstanding feat, one that eludes many others. With just 15 days to go, he faces a significant challenge and is expected to perform exceptionally. Should he fall short, he will undoubtedly face intense criticism and scrutiny, reminiscent of the scrutiny Virat Kohli faced and the challenges Rahul Dravid encountered back in 2007.”
