In his analysis of Rohit’s captaincy, Muzumdar emphasized three key aspects with a stress on data and statistics during the Star Sports show, ‘Follow the Blues’.Muzumdar further pointed out Rohit’s unique captaincy style, which involves friendly and effective communication with his players. This approach helps in simplifying complex situations and contributes to the team’s success.
“I want to highlight 3 things about his captaincy. The first one is, Rohit Sharma gives a lot of weightage and importance to data and statistics. This includes one of the most important parts of his planning; he believes that it is very important to know each and every minute details and statistics of all the opposition players. The second one is, he keeps things very simple and tries to make his team members think simple. He keeps everyone in the team in a very cool and calm atmosphere,” Muzumdar said on the Star Sports show.

Muzumdar also emphasised Rohit’s ‘magical touch,’ crediting this unique quality for the Mumbai Indians‘ success in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“His style of captaincy is a bit different from others; he talks very politely and in a very lovable way with his players, thus keeping things in a very easy and simple manner. And, the third one, which is the most important point, is that he has that magical touch in him. Whatever changes he makes, that comes out like a magical touch, like for example, Mumbai Indians got that magical touch in their team after Rohit Sharma became their captain. He also has five IPL titles in his name. I hope 2023 will take his magical touch,” Muzumdar concluded.
