On his latest appearance at the Club Prairie Fire podcast, Rohit Sharma, the former Mumbai Indians captain, spoke about his routine in detail during the home games in the IPL 2024. The 36-year-old revealed that he is not staying at the MI team hotel for matches at the Wankhede Stadium, instead spending time with his family at home in Mumbai.

In the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, Rohit Sharma is in some of his best batting form in the franchise T20 tournament in recent memory, scoring runs consistently at a high tempo. He has accumulated 297 runs in seven matches for Mumbai Indians in the IPL this season, at an average of 49.50, while his strike rate is 164.08.

Before his recent IPL appearance for Mumbai Indians against Punjab Kings in Mullanpur, the recent episode of the Club Prairie Fire podcast involving Rohit Sharma was released on YouTube. When Adam Gilchrist, the former Australian cricketer, asked him whether he could relax in between IPL games, the Indian captain revealed that he was spending time with his family at home instead of staying at the MI team hotel.

I have got a lot of time on my hands these days: Rohit Sharma

“I have got a lot of time on my hands these days. Just spending a lot of time with my family. Staying at home actually. Last four games we (Mumbai Indians) played in Mumbai (at the Wankhede Stadium), I was at home. And just going an hour before we get together as a team for a little team meeting. So it’s been good, a little different but it’s been good,” Rohit Sharma detailed his routine during MI home game in the IPL 2024.

Moreover, at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Rohit Sharma scored 36 off 25 against Punjab Kings, stitching together a second wicket stand of 81 runs with Suryakumar Yadav, to set up the good platform for MI to score 192/7 in their allotted overs. PBKS batters delivered a spirited performance in front of their home fans in the run chase, after getting reduced to 14/4, but they ended up on the losing side by nine runs.
