Mumbai Indians’ former captain Rohit Sharma is reportedly not happy with the captaincy of  Hardik Pandya in the IPL 2024. According to the reports, the veteran batter will leave the Mumbai Indians after the completion of the season. Notably, Sharma led the side to their five trophies in his term spanning over a decade. Ahead of the IPL 2024, the current India captain was replaced by former Gujarat Titans skipper Hardik Pandya as the captain of the Neeta Ambani-owned franchise. 

Pandya got on fans’ radars after he replaced Mumbai’s long-standing captain following a trade from the Titans ahead of the auction. Fans left no chance to launch verbal attacks on the India all-rounder, even during MI’s IPL 2024 fixtures. Things seemed to have got worse as Pandya hasn’t been able to win any of their games as the captain thus far. 

Rohit Sharma not happy with Hardik Pandya’s captaincy, to leave MI after IPL 2024: Reports

According to reports by News 24, Sharma is unhappy with the team’s current captain. An MI player informed that Shama’s unhappiness with Pandya has caused a rift in the dressing room. Sharma has expressed his desire to part ways with the MI. The source also stated that several arguments have taken place between the players, which has ruined the atmosphere of the dressing room. 

It is to be noted that Mumbai have lost all their matches in the tournament so far. They slumped to Gujarat in their season opener, which was followed by SRH’s defeat against Mumbai. Not only this, but they also ended up on the defeating side of their home game against the 2008 winners Rajasthan Royals.
