Rohit informed Ashwin, "Ricky Ponting was with us in the auction in 2013. In 2012, Sachin Tendulkar said he would not captain and Harbhajan Singh got the captaincy."
The right-handed batsman mentioned, "But in 2013, I did not understand why Bhajju Pa was made the captain. I thought I would be made the captain. But then Ponting was bought at auction."
Rohit Sharma, who has scored three double centuries, was not anticipated to cross the 200 mark even as soon as.
He mentioned, "Ponting was the first player to come to India in the 2013 season. He wanted to understand everyone. He said he wanted a team bonding session first. It made a positive impact on everyone and inspired the young players a lot."
Rohit defined why Ponting left the captaincy within the center season and why Rohit was made the captain. "He was unable to score so he gave up the captaincy. Ponting called me and I was given the captaincy. He was a player less coach in the 2013 season. He was always ready to help me," he mentioned.
