“Rohit Sharma could reclaim Mumbai Indians captaincy from Hardik Pandya” | Cricket News


With three defeats in as many matches, Mumbai Indiansera under Hardik Pandya‘s captaincy started on a disastrous note, after the franchise decided to bow out Rohit Sharma as team skipper before the current race IPL2024 season.
Apart from a hat-trick of defeats – against Gujarat Titans, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals, Hardik also faced a backlash from fans who were upset over the captaincy change and the team’s sorry run. ‘team.

Hardik was traded by MI ahead of the current edition of Gujarat Titans where he led the team for two seasons, including a title win in 2022.

Speaking about the captaincy issue and MI’s winless run so far, former India batsman Manoj Tiwary shared his two cents on Cricbuzz.
“It can happen,” Tiwary said about the chances of Rohit becoming captain again.
“…As little as I understand, these franchises and owners do not hesitate to answer calls. They had started it when they took the captaincy from Rohit and gave it to Hardik. Now, it’s quite important when you change a captain who “You won five titles. And now when they haven’t won a single match and the captaincy also looks jaded, mistakes are happening,” Tiwary said.

“This (Hardik opting not to play in the home match against Rajasthan) is an indication that Hardik is under pressure. If he does not play, after playing in the first two matches and in conditions where there is had some swing on offer in the first and second innings, I think he felt the pressure with the kind of reception he received.
“I have a feeling that during this break (MI’s next match on April 7), Rohit Sharma might get back the captaincy from Hardik Pandya,” Tiwary said on Cricbuzz.
Tiwary also highlighted Hardik’s confused mind, talking about the decisions he made on and off the field.
“SRH scored 277, but look at the changes in the bowling. Shams Mulani came in to bowl last, (Jasprit) Bumrah was brought in in the 13th over. There is no stability in the batting order. Nobody has a permanent place. Sometimes Tilak Varma will bat higher, sometimes Dewald Brevis… It’s a very average captaincy position, so I think this decision (making Rohit captain again) should be taken, purely on the basis of a cricket aspect. look good either,” Tiwary added.
MI’s next match will be a home game against Delhi Capitals in Mumbai this Sunday.
