Former India pacer Zaheer Khan was not impressed with Rohit Sharma’s captaincy during the match against South Africa in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia.

As per Zaheer, Rohit failed to use his resources, which allowed South Africa to bounce back in the match.

“You got the match to that level from where you got to just finish it. So, I am disappointed with that. Rest of the things are fine. You know what you did. Leading up to that didn’t matter, you made the match out of it. And from there, you just let the Proteas bounce back in the game. They went on to win the match. That is something that you need to look into. It is all about confidence in certain bowlers,” Zaheer Khan said in a video on Cricbuzz.

“It felt like to a certain degree that skipper Rohit was not able to use his resources or he’s kind of stuck with using a particular bowler in a particular position. Arshdeep could have bowled three overs at the top, but Rohit felt that who is going to take care of the backend. There are certain factors which are still not comfortable,” the former aggressive pacer added.

Notably, India have so far won two matches and lost one in the mega event. While the Men in Blue have contrasting victories against arch-rival Pakistan and minnow Netherlands, they lost to South Africa in a tight encounter.

Team India will lock horns with Bangladesh in an important encounter in Adelaide on Wednesday.
