Rohit Sharma Likely To Replace Hardik Pandya As Mumbai Indians’ Captain: Reports

Mumbai: Traditional slow starters of the IPL Mumbai Indians are grappling with a challenging season kickoff. The team’s performance under Hardik Pandya’s captaincy has been lacklustre, with both on-field results and crowd support faltering. Pandya’s leadership woes have sparked discussions about reinstating former skipper Rohit Sharma.

With three consecutive losses, Mumbai Indians now have a six-day break before their upcoming clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore. Former India batter Manoj Tiwary suggests that Pandya’s evident pressure warrants a reconsideration of leadership. Tiwary draws parallels with his own experience, emphasizing the significance of a captain’s calibre and track record.

Tiwary highlighted Pandya’s questionable decision-making and the team’s unsettled atmosphere as reasons for concern. Pandya’s choices, such as delaying Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling spell and constant batting order changes, have raised eyebrows among fans and experts alike.

The possibility of Rohit Sharma reclaiming the captaincy looms large, reminiscent of Chennai Super Kings’ similar move in 2022.

As Mumbai Indians navigate their current predicament, a strategic decision on leadership appears imminent for the franchise’s future success.
