Former Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh commented on the Mumbai Indians’ captaincy situation, where Hardik Pandya replaced Rohit Sharma as captain after a trade from Gujarat Titans before the IPL 2024 auction. While rumors of a rift between Rohit and Hardik circulate, Harbhajan expressed hope that they can resolve any differences for the team’s benefit. He emphasized the importance of leaving controversies behind for the franchise’s future. Rohit Sharma, alongside MS Dhoni, holds the record for most IPL titles as captain, with five wins for Mumbai Indians. In contrast, Hardik Pandya led Gujarat Titans to IPL victory in 2022 and the finals in the previous season. Pandya mentioned that due to Rohit’s busy touring schedule, they haven’t had extensive discussions about the leadership change but assured that Rohit would continue to guide him. He also addressed fan outrage over Rohit’s removal, emphasizing focus on controllables. This IPL season marks Hardik’s return to competitive cricket after an injury during the ODI World Cup in October the previous year.
