The former England captain told Cricbuzz: « They are still a strong team but I doubt they can go all the way without Rohit Sharma

« I just think he’s such an important part of this team, when you look at the captain, the leadership and of course his stick

« They are still a very strong team and you despise their team and they are very consistent with their selections and they stay loyal to the players they believe in

« They are still a good team, but I think the Rohit Sharma factor is important. I don’t see them winning the IPL this year without Rohit

« His injury is a bit of a mystery But I don’t see them winning the tournament without Rohit playing a role in the next few matches »
