IPL 2024: Now only a few days are left for the start of IPL. The first match will be played on Friday i.e. 22nd March. The teams of RCB and CSK will face each other on the first day in Chennai. Meanwhile, preparations for the 5-time IPL champion team Mumbai Indians are also going on. All the players are doing their own practice. This time the command of the team is going to be in the hands of Hardik Pandya. Now, just 4 days before the next season of the Indian Premier League, Hardik Pandya has given a big statement about former MI captain Rohit Sharma.

Rohit Sharma has given 5 IPL titles to MI under his captaincy.

In the year 2013, Rohit Sharma became the captain of Mumbai Indians. After half the matches this season, the command of Mumbai Indians was handed over to Rohit. This was the first year when MI won its first IPL title. From then till the year 2023, the team won the trophy 5 times. Every time the captain was Rohit Sharma. In IPL, only two captains have been successful in winning the IPL title 5 times, the names of them are Rohit and MS Dhoni. But this time surprisingly Rohit Sharma has been removed and Hardik Pandya has been made the captain in his place.

What did Hardik Pandya say on Rohit?

Hardik Pandya has said about Rohit Sharma that he will always be present to help me. Hardik said that whatever this team has achieved, it has been done under the leadership of Rohit. Now I just have to take it forward. Hardik expressed hope that Rohit will put his hand on my shoulders. Not only this, Hardik Pandya further said that Rohit Sharma is the captain of the Indian team, this helps me. Hardik said that his entire career has been played under the leadership of Rohit and I know that his hand will always be there.

This time Hardik will take command of Mumbai Indians

Hardik Pandya's IPL debut was with Mumbai Indians. After performing well there, he was included in Team India and also performed well. Hardik also took command of the Indian team in the absence of Rohit Sharma. Before IPL 2022, Mumbai Indians had released Hardik Pandya. After this he joined Gujarat Titans. Call it luck or the team's excellent performance, for the first time under his captaincy, Hardik made Gujarat Titans win the title. After winning the title of 2022, the team again reached the finals in the next year i.e. 2023, however, CSK under the captaincy of MS Dhoni defeated them there. In this way the team could not win the trophy twice consecutively. Whereas the performance of Mumbai Indians has gone down in the last few years. Perhaps thinking this, Mumbai has changed its captain. It remains to be seen how the team performs this time under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya.
