After beating England by 68 runs in Guyana, Team India has entered the final of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 under the able leadership of Rohit Sharma. The Rohit Sharma-led side has so far remained undefeated in the current edition.

Recalling some of the major developments in Rohit’s eventful career over the past few months, former India captain Sourav Ganguly said that life has ‘come a full circle’ for the India skipper.

In December last year, Hardik Pandya succeeded Rohit Sharma as the captain of the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Mumbai Indians (MI) and the move caused significant controversy. Ganguly referred to the moment and lauded Rohit for the comeback.

“I’m very happy for Rohit Sharma. Life comes full circle. Six months ago, he was not even the captain of Mumbai Indians, and the same man is now leading India to a World Cup final, unbeaten,” said Ganguly during a recent interaction.

“Rohit has played two World Cup finals where he has gone into the final unbeaten. That speaks of his captaincy and leadership quality, and I’m not surprised because he became captain when I was the BCCI president and when Virat didn’t want to captain India anymore. It took a lot of time to make him captain because he was not ready to captain. It took a lot of pushing from all of us to make him captain and I’m very happy to see the progress of Indian cricket under him,” he added.
