Mumbai Indians New Captain for IPL 2024

Hardik Pandya Replaces Rohit Sharma as New Captain of Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians (MI) have made a big decision by appointing Hardik Pandya as their captain for the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL). This formally ends Rohit Sharma’s remarkable ten-year tenure.

The team’s global head of performance, Mahela Jayawardene, said that MI is committed to remaining “future-ready,” and this strategic choice reflects that commitment.

Pandya’s return to the Mumbai Indians comes after a calculated trade with the Gujarat Titans that strengthened MI’s purse for the impending mini-auction while also securing the talented all-rounder. By carefully navigating the player trade market, the team was able to assemble a strong squad for the upcoming challenges.

Mahela Jayawardene thanked Rohit Sharma for his outstanding tenure and underlined that although the captaincy may change, Rohit’s leadership will still be vital in determining the team’s performance.
