Mumbai Indians are undergoing significant upheaval following Rohit Sharma’s captaincy removal, with Hardik Pandya stepping in as the new captain on December 15.
The fans are unhappy with the decision to remove Rohit Sharma as captain, considering his success in leading Mumbai Indians to 5 IPL titles. The lack of advance notice further adds to their frustration.
Surprisingly, not just fans but even Mumbai Indians players appear unaware of the decision, expressing their shock. Suryakumar Yadav, in particular, shared a cryptic message on social media after Rohit Sharma’s captaincy removal.
Having been absent from India’s T20I squad since the 2022 T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma won’t be captaining his IPL franchise in 2024.
The India skipper, who took a cricket break after the 2023 World Cup loss, is set to make his comeback in the upcoming two-match Test series against South Africa, starting on December 26.
