Rohit Sharma Records As MI Captain

Rohit Sharma, who played a crucial role in taking India to the ODI World Cup final, led the Mumbai Indians since 2013, helping them win their first IPL trophy. He continued to be successful, securing more titles in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020. Mumbai Indians, under Rohit’s smart leadership, consistently showed their strength.

In the 2023 IPL season, the team made it to the playoffs, highlighting the lasting success under Rohit’s captaincy. His time as captain has made him one of the best leaders in the IPL, not just for winning with Mumbai Indians but also for leaving a lasting impact on the team’s history.

“We want to thank Rohit Sharma for his outstanding leadership. He’s been the captain of Mumbai Indians since 2013, and his time with the team has been truly remarkable.

His leadership not only brought a lot of success to the team but also established him as one of the best captains in IPL history. Under him, Mumbai Indians became one of the most successful and beloved teams. We will continue to seek his guidance and experience both on and off the field to make Mumbai Indians even stronger.

We are excited to welcome Hardik Pandya as the new captain of Mumbai Indians and wish him the very best,” said Jayawardene.

Hardik Pandya Performance In IPL

Hardik Pandya took over as the captain of the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, leading them to success from 2015 to 2021. Later, he left to captain the Titans and won the IPL title in 2022, finishing as runners-up in the following year.

This development raises questions about Rohit Sharma’s future in T20 cricket, especially after India’s loss in the ODI World Cup final against Australia. While another ODI World Cup appearance for Rohit seems unlikely, he might lead India in the T20 World Cup in six months. Notably, both Rohit and Virat Kohli have not played for India in T20 since the semifinal exit.
