The 13th edition of Indian Premier League witnessed several things and among them which was usual that Mumbai Indians once again lifted the IPL 2020 title after beating Delhi Capitals in the final. And, Rohit Sharma becomes the most successful captain in the history of the league as he successfully led the side to the title for the fifth time in just eight years.

Meanwhile, former India opener Virender Sehwag has referred to Rohit Sharma as the best T20 captain in the world after their five wickets win to defend the title. He smashed a half-century in the match to help Mumbai Indians chase down a modest total of 157 within 19 overs with ease.

Rohit Sharma played the sheet anchor’s role until the 17th over and never let Delhi Capitals dominate them with their bowling attack while chasing the total. Notably, he and his opening partner Quinton de Kock got Mumbai Indians off to a flying start by adding 45 runs in just 4 overs as well.

After that, although de Kock got out, captains stood strong in the middle and Mumbai Indians never felt the pressure of scoring quickly. When Rohit Sharma got out in the 17th over, they required only 20 runs from 22 balls where the skipper smashed a swashbuckling knock of 68 off 51 balls, his third fifty this season. Later, the youngster Ishan Kishan played a crucial knock, scoring 33 and remaining unbeaten to ensure Mumbai Indians reach the target without any hiccups.

However, after the game, Virender Sehwag took to Twitter and congratulated the team Mumbai Indians in his own way. While praising, he called the franchise as the best T20 franchise in the world before acknowledging Rohit Sharma as the best T20 captain. He also applauded the authorities for organising IPL in such a great way amid this crunch time.

“Ab to aadat si hai sabko aise dhone ki. The best T 20 franchisee in the world and the best captain in the format. Deserving winners , Mumbai Indians, koi shak,” wrote Virender Sehwag.

“Amazingly well organised tournament despite various challenges,” he further added.
