Rohit Sharma has been the captain of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League for several years, according to Karim. KL Rahul, on the other hand, has demonstrated his leadership in the previous two editions of the cash-rich league while leading the Punjab Kings.

“I think the choice should be very simple. Right now, you have two contenders Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. The BCCI should think about how these players would perform as batsmen after being named captain. KL Rahul has been doing well as captain and batsman for Punjab. Rohit Sharma has also been doing the same for several years now with Mumbai Indians.” Saba Karim said
