Rohit Sharma Was Not In The Poster of Mumbai Indians Posted in X. How Fans Reacted To This?

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the 16-man squad for the Test series against England Rohit Sharma as a captain, starting on January 25 in Hyderabad. Although the squad details are currently available only for the first two Tests.

In an interesting move, Mumbai Indians, an Indian Premier League team, used social media to inform their fans about the Test squad but included images of KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, and Shreyas Iyer in their announcement. They did not feature Rohit Sharma in their poster, as Rohit Sharma was formerly Mumbai Indians captain and also played a crucial role in helping MI win five IPL trophies.

Rohit Sharma is Not Included in MI Poster

Mumbai Indians recently posted a picture announcing the Team India squad for the England Test series. The poster featured KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, and Jasprit Bumrah, but surprisingly, it didn’t include India’s captain, Rohit Sharma.

Rohit Sharma was the captain of Mumbai Indians for 10 years and played a crucial role in winning five IPL trophies for the team. This exclusion upset many fans who expressed their disappointment on social media platform.

How Fans Reacted to This?

Mumbai Indians (MI) included the names of the players in their announcement but didn’t include a photo of the former captain, Rohit Sharma. This upset Rohit Sharma’s fans, and they expressed their frustration in the comments.

It’s worth noting that MI had already faced criticism from Rohit’s fans when they chose to replace him as captain for the IPL 2024 season. Hardik Pandya, who was traded from Gujarat Titans (GT), was appointed as the new captain shortly after the transfer.

Rohit Sharma’s fans are not happy with Mumbai Indians because they removed him as captain. This latest post has made them even more upset. A lot of MI fans, in the thousands, have unfollowed MI on Instagram, according to a report.

The new MI captain, Hardik Pandya, is also facing mean comments on social media. When he was at the airport in Mumbai, people were shouting Rohit Sharma’s name. But the current captain hasn’t said anything about the negativity he’s been getting since taking on the new job, which surely has its challenges.
