Former England spinner Graeme Swann has defended Rohit Sharma ahead of his captaincy being called into question after the Mumbai Indians were defeated five times in a row in IPL 2022.
“I am not happy that Rohit Sharma’s captaincy is questioned here at all. I think the bowlers are low on confidence. There is a massive difference between a captain who can throw the ball to his bowlers, who can absolutely hit a length,” Swann stated on Star Sports Network.
“Until Jasprit Bumrah came on and bowled a brilliant spell in the middle overs, the Mumbai bowlers were well below-par. So do not, for one second, start thinking it’s Rohit’s fault. Everybody he turned to bowled badly in the first 10 overs. That’s how it is,” he further added.
