The team of Mumbai Indians has won the IPL title 4 times under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. The same hit man Rohit Sharma attributes the success of his captaincy to former Mumbai Indians captain and current Chief Coach of Delhi Capitals Ricky Ponting.
Captain of Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma has revealed –
Mumbai Indians’ most successful captain Rohit Sharma praised Ricky Ponting, saying, “He has learned the art of making all the players of the team feel his importance throughout his career.” And on the basis of this art, his team has been so successful.
Significantly, the team of Mumbai Indians has won the title the most times so far. And they all won the trophy under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. In a special program of India Today, the news channel, the Mumbai Indian and the vice-captain of the Indian team have spoken bluntly about the success of their team and the manner of their captaincy.
The same Rohit has praised Ricky Ponting for his success. Rohit Sharma said, I try to know this during the match. How even the smallest contribution from the players of a team is very important. When I make the players realize this latter, they give 200 percent of themselves in the team.
And yes during this time my own performance also becomes very important. I learned from former Australian captain Ricky Ponting that apart from the 10 players in the team, you have to make the other players sitting on the bench also feel a part of the match. And you have to make sure that you keep talking to everyone.

And this is the reason why I try to ensure this. Ricky Ponting has played the role of coach and captain of Mumbai Indians. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma praised Ponting and said that when Ricky Ponting was part of Mumbai team.
Then I had a chance to learn a lot from him. He told me that when you captain, you can’t just think how to work with them, you always have to listen to them.
