Dinesh Karthik says India can’t have multiple captains

Veteran India wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik stated that the a cricketing country like India would not work with number of captains in multiple formats.

Rohit Sharma will debut as Test captain when India play Sri Lanka in the first Test at the IS Bindra PCA Stadium from Friday.

“A cricketing country like India needs one captain. It is very easy to deal with one captain for all three formats. I remember MS Dhoni saying that split captaincy doesn’t work in India that well. We haven’t had that over a period of time, so we wouldn’t know. But at this point in time when I do see it, I think he (Rohit) is the man. Every time he touched something; it’s turned to gold. All the series he has been a part of, he has won convincingly,” said Karthik on the latest episode of ICC Review show.

Karthik was impressed with the way Rohit has used Indian bowlers during the limited over formats was amazing.

“He has shown a lot of tactical nous in the games that he has played. Moved the bowlers around really well, giving confidence to the batters and when they’ve won a series, giving opportunities to the young guys. Sometimes taking a backseat, batting in a position where obviously he has not batted there for a long time. So, he is doing a lot of things right.”

Under Sharma’s captaincy, India has handed debuts to Deepak Hooda, Avesh Khan, Venkatesh Iyer, Harshal Patel and Ravi Bishnoi in the format, which has worked wonders for the team.

“The good thing is, there have been 2-3 debutants in his captaincy and all have done well. And that doesn’t happen always. It’s great to see that happening and he is somebody who is a people’s person. He understands failures well. So, it is very nice that he is taking the team forward,” stated Karthik.
