“Captaincy Controversy: Rohit Sharma’s IPL Dilemma Unveiled”

Explained: Why Rohit was replaced by Hardik as Mumbai captain for IPL 2024 | Cricket – Hindustan Times

Sharma, a highly regarded figure in Indian cricket, was replaced as captain by Hardik Pandya. This decision has sparked controversy and left fans and former cricketers puzzled. Navjot Singh Sidhu, a former cricketer turned commentator, expressed the sentiments of Rohit’s fans, questioning the rationale behind his removal as captain. Despite leading the Indian national team, Rohit now plays under Hardik’s captaincy in the IPL. Sidhu suggests that Rohit’s success could have silenced the criticism, indicating that the decision was influenced by recent performance. Additionally, there were speculations about Hardik taking over as India’s T20 captain, but BCCI confirmed Rohit Sharma’s continuation as the captain for the T20 World Cup. Sidhu believes an earlier announcement from BCCI could have potentially prevented Rohit’s replacement in Mumbai Indians, emphasizing the significance of the India captain also leading his franchise team. Presently, Hardik captains Mumbai Indians, while Rohit remains the captain of the Indian team across all formats.
