Rohit Sharma, one of the most successful captains in the Indian Premier League, says he learnt the art of making teammates feel important from Australian great Ricky Ponting.

The India opener has led IPL side Mumbai Indians to a record four titles after being appointed Ponting’s successor in the 2013 season of the Twenty20 tournament.

“I want to make sure the 10 guys who are playing and the other players on the bench, I should be talking to them and make them feel important,” Sharma, who has also captained India in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli, told India Today TV.
