In the build-up to the last match for Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024 season against Lucknow Super Giants, the social media platform X went abuzz about the future of Rohit Sharma in the franchise T20 league. The fans were in unison in speculating that the upcoming IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium could be the last match for Rohit Sharma in the Mumbai Indians colours, with his departure from the team imminent.

Notably, for the first time in a decade, Rohit Sharma played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2024 without the responsibility of captaincy, which the team management had given to Hardik Pandya. After making a great start to the IPL 2024 with the bat, the performances of the 37-year-old fell away drastically in the second half of the season, which led to MI’s early elimination from the playoffs race.

During his recent trip to Kolkata to play against KKR in the IPL 2024, Rohit Sharma was talking to Abhishek Nayar about change before saying that “it’s his last.” Although the context of the conversation is unknown, the fans took it with a pinch of salt, considering it as Rohit’s way of telling them that the ongoing IPL season could be his last with Mumbai Indians.

Here are the posts from the fans on X speculating that Rohit Sharma could be playing his last match for Mumbai Indians against Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2024:

Moreover, Mumbai Indians will be looking to secure a win over Lucknow Super Giants, to get themselves off the bottom of the IPL 2024 points table. They are in a direct battle for the wooden spoon against Punjab Kings, who will be taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday, May 19, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
