IPL 2024: Should Rohit Sharma Continue Playing for MI in the IPL 2024 Under the Captaincy of Hardik Pandya? Will This also Impact the Indian T20 Team?

Mumbai Indians batter Rohit Sharma is all set to achieve a massive feat against Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The opening batter is just 23 runs away from completing 1000 runs against the Rishabh Pant-led side in the league. 

Mumbai Indians will be playing Delhi Capitals in the 20th match of the IPL 2024 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday (April 7th). Rohit Sharma will be having a great opportunity to achieve the feat and enter his name in record books. 

Rohit Sharma has looked in decent touch in the ongoing IPL 2024. The batter played a valiant innings of 42 runs against Gujarat Titans and then followed it up with a 26-run cameo. The former Mumbai Indians skipper didn’t have a great outing against Rajasthan Royals as he bagged a golden duck.

The opening batter will have a point to prove in the game against Delhi Capitals. He was recently removed as the captain of the team with the franchise naming Hardik Pandya as a captain. The move hasn’t been welcomed at all by the fans as they have been booing the all-rounder. 

This is because Rohit Sharma made Mumbai Indians dominant in the IPL. The opening batter guided the team to the five titles in the league. The fans have expressed their disappointment with the way the franchise treated the India captain.

Mumbai Indians are not having a great time in the ongoing IPL 2024. The Hardik Pandya-led side are reeling at the bottom of the table and haven’t won a single game. They would be keen to make a comeback before it gets too late in the tournament. 

For that, Rohit Sharma will be extremely important for the team. The opening batter needs to give his team a powerful start at the top. It’s fair today if he plays his best in the league, Mumbai Indians will become hot favourites to win the title.
