Unhappy Rohit Sharma to quit Mumbai Indians after IPL 2024: Rumours or Real?

Unhappy Rohit Sharma to quit Mumbai Indians? Indian team skipper Rohit Sharma seems disappointed with the new Mumbai Indians captain Hardik Pandya in the ongoing season of IPL 2024. According to the latest reports, the former MI skipper is unhappy with Hardik Pandya’s leadership style and plans to quit Mumbai Indians after IPL 2024.

Ahead of the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League, the Mumbai Indians wanted a shift in captaincy hoping for a smooth transition. As a result, the franchise removed the 5-time winning captain Rohit Sharma and appointed Hardik Pandya as the new skipper by trading him from Gujarat Titans with a huge transfer fee of INR 100 crores. It includes Hardik’s payment of INR 15 crores.

However, the plans of Mumbai Indians backfired as the franchise currently ranks as table bottomers despite playing 3 matches.

Is the Hitman Rohit Sharma ready to quit Mumbai Indians? Will there be any change in MI’s captaincy during the IPL 2024? Let us find out if the information is a rumour or a fact in detail…

Why Rohit Sharma plans to leave Mumbai Indians?

In recent times, there has been a lot of argument between Rohit and Hardik over the decision on the field. Especially, Hardik Pandya’s captaincy has caused a split in the Mumbai Indian’s dressing room as the team has lost all three matches.

According to the latest sources, there were severe arguments between the two players that created a poor atmosphere in the dressing room.

Fans witnessed dissatisfaction and enmity in the first IPL match of Mumbai Indians against the Gujarat Titans played on 24th March at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. A video went viral on social media when Hardik Pandya was commanding Rohit Sharma to move near the boundary ropes, although the former captain usually fields inside the 30-yard circle. Several fans lashed out on social media by expressing their frustration stating that they weren’t ready to accept Hardik as the new skipper.

In the same match, Hardik promoted  Tim David —the Australian batter, ahead of himself in the batting order while chasing a target of 169 runs which resulted in Mumbai Indians losing by 6 runs.

Whereas, in their second match, Hardik didn’t utilize Jasprit Bumrah against the aggressive batting attack of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). As a result, SRH scored 277-3 in 20 overs, which is indeed the highest score in IPL history.

Mumbai Indians changed captaincy after 5 games: Rohit Sharma back as captain?

According to the reports, the management of Mumbai Indians might prefer a captaincy change during the ongoing IPL 2024 by reviewing Hardik’s performance for the first five games. In simpler terms, the all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be given a chance for the upcoming 2 more matches against Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) to prove his talent as a promising captain.

There might be a shift in the captaincy of Mumbai Indians if the all-rounder fails to secure a win in these two games of IPL 2024. So, it is expected that Rohit Sharma step back into his shoes as Mumbai Indians captain.

Will Rohit Sharma leave Mumbai Indians?

If the above-mentioned reports turn out to be real, then we can expect Rohit Sharma to enter the IPL 2025 mega auction. Consequently, we might witness all the records being shattered as there are chances for the Hitman to emerge as the most expensive player in IPL history.

Moreover, any franchise wouldn’t leave Rohit Sharma as a skipper and opening batter who has won 5 IPL trophies for his team and scored 6,280 runs in 241 IPL matches with his highest individual score of 109 runs.


Overall, it would be a big loss for Mumbai Indians to leave Rohit Sharma, who is the most-capped player of his franchise. Since his stint with the MI in 2011, he scored more than 5,000 runs in 201 matches.

Moreover, Rohit Sharma as a successful IPL captain deserves to be treated respectfully by the MI management, which they certainly didn’t do by replacing him with Hardik as their new skipper for IPL 2024 without his consent.

Also, the team’s friendly atmosphere is getting disrupted by the conflicts between Rohit and Hardik on major decisions.

However, Rohit Sharma’s decision to quit Mumbai Indians remains a mystery as the IPL 2024 tournament still has a long way to go.

On the other side, Hardik Pandya has travelled through immense pressure in the ongoing rich cash league. Not only he failed as a captain but, also delivered a poor performance with both bat and ball. In all the 3 matches, Hardik scored just 69 runs and took just a wicket, thereby facing the toughest phases of his life.

Even though a change in captaincy in the middle of the season is possible, Hardik gets a chance for the upcoming 2 matches to change the situation before losing his captaincy role.

Finally, it is a huge challenge for Hardik Pandya to make a comeback as a captain and silence the criticism surrounding him after facing three consecutive losses.
