Rohit Sharma will lead Mumbai Indians today (March 27) in the second match of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League, against Delhi Capitals at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Notably, the league stage of the IPL 2022 will be held across four venues in Maharashtra, including Wankhede Stadium, DY Patil Stadium, Brabourne Stadium, and the MCA Stadium in Pune.

Amidst all this, the MI skipper had an interesting take on matches not being held across different states.

While attending a fan interaction session virtually before the second clash of the tournament, Sharma was asked about other franchises raising their complaints with the BCCI that Mumbai Indians will have an unfair advantage playing four matches at their home ground of Wankhede Stadium.

In response, Sharma hit back at other franchises and suggested them to build more than one stadium so that IPL matches can be held. He said, “Franchises have said that MI should not be allowed to play in Mumbai. So I would like to suggest that those objecting franchisees should construct 3-4 grounds each in their cities.”

Meanwhile, ahead of the start of IPL 2022, Rohit Sharma claimed that it is an even playing field for all franchises, given that even MI has only a handful of players who have previously played at the Wankhede Stadium & Brabourne Stadium in the past. MI is playing four matches at their home ground, while none of the other franchises is getting to play a single game at their home ground in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League.

MI will open their IPL 2022 account against Delhi Capitals on March 27 in a day match at Brabourne Stadium.
