Former Sri Lankan cricketers Sangakkara and Jayawardene formed a good combination on the court during their playing days, and their friendly relationship has been widely recognized.
Butt believes that Kohli and Rohit are similar to the Sri Lanka duo, and the former Pakistani players also feel that Kohli’s withdrawal from the T20I captain will not affect India.
“Kohli has done a very good job, and India has a capable replacement (probably Rohit Sharma). Therefore, Kohli’s withdrawal should not adversely affect India in any way. This is a well-thought-out decision,” Bart said in his Said on the Youtube channel.
“Kohli and Rohit are like Sri Lanka’s Jayawardene and Sangakkara. The captain switches between them, but they work together and make decisions. Similarly, if Rohit succeeds Kohli in the T20 cricket match, I don’t think there should be a problem. They Can work well as a team,” he added.
Rohit Sharma led India in some games where Kohli was absent, such as the 2018 Nidahas Trophy, when they played against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in the T20I three series.
The Indian team won the series, which was the first major achievement of a Mumbai player as the captain of the Indian team. In the same year, the Indian team won the Asian Cup in the UAE under the leadership of Rohit.
