MI vs RCB in IPL 2021 – Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma: Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli’s coach Rajkumar Sharma in a candid interview to Insidepsort.co has admitted that India’s most successful captain never got the team that could have won an IPL title. Sharma doesn’t have any qualms in declaring, ‘Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians is a better team than the RCB’.
“Mumbai Indians are undoubtedly the best IPL team both on papers and performance-wise as well. They will undoubtedly start as favourites against RCB as they are a better side, plain and simple. To be honest, Virat never had the team or got the team that could have won an IPL title despite being the highest scorer in IPL history. As far as his own performance is concerned he has been one of the best IPL batsmen to date scoring the most number of runs. But if you see his team, since the beginning he did not get the right balance. Yes, he got players like AB De Villiers, Chris Gayle and Dale Steyn but somehow the right balance was not struck. I feel bowling wise, they always remained a weaker side. Now, with Glen Maxwell coming in, it looks a little better as he is a match-winner that the team needs after Kohli and De Villiers,” Rajkumar Sharma, who is currently also Delhi Ranji Trophy head coach told Insidesport.co in an exclusive interview, hours before the lung opener between MI & RCB at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday night.
MI vs RCB in IPL 2021 – Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma: Virat’s childhood coach said he was not worried that Virat has not won an IPL title but he would love to see him lift the title. “Honestly, we do not discuss IPL much and he never expressed any regret in not clinching an IPL title. We discuss international cricket and he was disappointed in not winning ICC World Cup in 2019. But he has never spoken to me or expressed any kind of frustration in not winning an IPL title. He knows it will come one day. But I hope and wish he gets the team required to do the job. You never know, this could well be the year for Virat and Glenn just be the lucky charm for him,” Rajkumar Sharma observed.
MI vs RCB in IPL 2021 – Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma: He further said that Virat was not desperate to win the IPL title as for him doing well for India has always been the priority. “Yes, he really wants to win this title something that he always deserved but has eluded him. But knowing him, I am sure he is not losing his sleep over it as he has always given top priority for playing for the country. But that does not mean he does not give his best shot at the IPL or how else he is the highest run-getter in IPL history,” the top coach noted.
