During the interview, Parthiv Patel was asked about the better captain according to him, he replied by bringing out the qualities that differ all the three captains- Dhoni, Rohit, and Virat.
On Dhoni’s captaincy, he said, “I think MS Dhoni knows completely about every player’s potential and what all can be extracted out from him. We talk about giving your 100 percent, but every player’s level of 100 percent varies,” he added, “So, Dhoni knows what is a potential of a player, and he brings that out. He lets them play in their own style, and gives them space to express themselves.”
Mentioning the details of Rohit Sharma’s captaincy he said, “Rohit plans really well. At bowlers’ meet, he is completely involved. He figures out how to use the information that has been given to him, and which player can be used in what role - he is a master in figuring that out. He has improved a lot over the years, starting from 2014 to now, if you look at him. At man-management, Dhoni and Rohit are really good at.”
At last, he revealed about Virat Kohli’s captaincy and said “Virat has a different style of captaincy, he likes to be right in front every time, he likes to be lead from the front and be aggressive all the time. It is his style and it has suited him. Dhoni and Rohit keep the dressing room calm while Virat makes sure that everyone is on their toes and they all keep pushing themselves,” he said.
