Former Australia cricketer Tom Moody said that Rohit Sharma brings value to the table as a captain amid concerns about his poor form in the ongoing IPL 2023. The Mumbai Indians skipper has not been able to contribute much with the bat consistently at the top of the order, having scored 2, 3 and 0 in his last three games as well. However, Moody stated that there is more to Rohit Sharma than a batter and urged the critics to be patient also.

“It is a concern, but I suppose from Mumbai Indians point of viewâ€æ Ishan Kishan, that was another concern leading into this game (PBKS vs MI). Both openers have been short of runs. That’s ticked off, he looks like he is up and running and flying,” Tom Moody told the broadcaster.

“The next one is Rohit Sharma. When you have batting depth of quality, that MI have, you can be patient with someone like Rohit Sharma because of the value that he brings to the table as captain. You look at the value that MS Dhoni has had for CSK.

He has only had a couple of impacts with the bat and that’s purely because he is sitting back in the batting order. There is more to Rohit Sharma than the batsman. It’s the leader, it’s the calm and successful mind. He is a multiple championship-winning captain,” Moody further added.

While chasing 215 against Punjab Kings, Rohit Sharma got out for a three-ball duck by Rishi Dhawan. But Ishan Kishan (75) and Suryakumar Yadav (66) kept Mumbai Indians in the game with their crucial 116-run partnership for the third wicket as well. Tim David and Tilka Verma eventually took Mumbai Indians to the finish in 18.5 overs. With this win, Mumbai Indians moved to sixth place with 10 points from nine games in the IPL points table as well.
